Hi All,

Can anyone suggest BAPI/ Function module to create serial numbers for material in IS Utilities system?

I have tried FM READ_MASE, but looks like this is not meeting the requirement.

I am trying to customize the serial number generation for serialized materials in physical inventory count update (transaction MI05) in SAP ISU system.

Thanks & Regards,

Can you not use FM :NUMBER_GET_NEXT,based on your number range setup?

Hello Dipin

This potentially is a two-folded development :

  • Upon generating / suggesting SerialNumbers, you want to enhance the Standard behaviour (1)
  • You possibly want to validate the input (SerialNumbers) to answer to a certain logic / range / status (2)

(1) Firstly, you can make use of the "IQSM0001" Enhancement (UserExit "EXIT_SAPLIPW1_001") to write your logic to populate the SerialNumbers in a certain way ... The Enhancement should be triggered upon clicking the button for "Create Serialnumber Automatically".

(2) Please check SAP-KBA 910644 : link
SAP-Wiki on IS-U Device Management BAdI : link
This provides BAdI " ISU_DM_SAPLIPW1"upon which a Method "EXIT_SAPLIWP1_008" can be called. This BAdI was created replacing the PM-UserExit "EXIT_SAPLIWP1_008" specifically for IS-U. Here you can validate the data additionally ...

PS : I am assuming the SerialNmbr-Profiles are already customized to integrate MM and IS-U (PM) with regards to Serialized Material.

Hope this helps
