"SRA004_SRV" OData service for My Travel Request cannot be redefined properlywith SEGW

Hi, I am experiencing a problem with redefining SRA004_SRV with SEGW.

The problem is, that redefined service's "Travel" entity is missing it's reference to dictionary type.

Here is original Service:

As you can see Travel is SRA004_S_TRAVEL dictionary structure.

But redefined service ZSRA004 (created in new empty project with DataModel/Redefine/OData Service (GW):

has Travel entity with no reference to dictionary structure:

There is also another problem: even if I create new entities ("Sub" for example, as shown on the screenshot) there is no new methods generated for that entities. (Pressing the "Generate Runtime Objects" finishes successfully to no purpose.)

I have got this behavior in two different systems (IDES on HANA with SAP_BASIS 740 and SP0009; and another one, really up to date system).

Have you experienced that?

How to enhance (redefine) SRA004_SRV properly?

How to create new entities in redefined SRA004?

What is going on?

Best regards, Ilia.

    Hi Ilia,

    SEGW does not create new methods when you have created a service via Redefinition.

    Therefore you have to redefine the dispatcher methods for GET_ENTITYSET, GET_ENTITY, ... such as /IWBEP/IF_MGW_APPL_SRV_RUNTIME~GET_ENTITYSET and add code that will be called if your entityset is called.

    Best Regards,


    DATA lv_entityset_name TYPE string. 
    DATA lr_entity TYPE REF TO data.
    lv_entityset_name = io_tech_request_context->get_entity_set_name( ). 
    CASE lv_entityset_name. 
       WHEN ‘<NewEntitySet>'. 
       er_entityset = er_entityset 
       es_response_context = es_response_context).
