MDG Questions


I am working in MDM for a company producing consumer products. We are thinking about implementing MDG and went trough some documentations we have found in the web. However we still have some open questions which we could not answer yet. Any help is more than welcome.

  1. Is it possible to define the dropdown values based on other values in the MDG request? For example, a user wants to create a new material and selects MRP C XXX, so we would like to restrict the values in the dropdown of the loading group. Is that possible?
  2. Is it possible to have validation check behind each field using ABAP coding? And how could we implement that?
  3. How can we define mandatory fields per change request type?
  4. Is it possible to adjust the code which is executed after pressing save/submit/check? If yes, how is that possible?
  5. When we create an update change request for material 1234 in MDG, will material 1234 be blocked in SAP?
  6. Is it possible to get a Change Request number per domain in MDG? e.g. Material 1XXXX, Customer 2XXX etc.

Any hints are welcome. Thanks and regards,

    There are lot of questions, but I will try to keep the answers simple. Of course you can find detailed answers in the forum and blogs.

    1. It must be possible with custom feeder class implementation. A similar approach is explained here in the below document.
    2. Yes, Validation badi can be used for implementing the checks for each field.
    3. 3 Options - Standard ERP configurations for mandaroty checks (Cannot be switched off in MDG CR), Marking the attribute as required on the CR level (configuration in MDG), and Implementing custom validation for the fields based on the CR type and BRF validations
    4. As I could recollect, it is not possible. But I will check for options or we need to wait for other experts in the forum for their comments.
    5. No, the material is still available for production use when the change is in progress. The productive data will not have the changes since it is pending approval. Because the changes on the CR are available only in the staging area. After CR is approved, the changes will reflect in the material.
    6. Yes, it is possible. There are no ready to use option available. It requires SAP MDG APIs to get this linkage.
