MDG-M how to add Manufacturer (MRFNR) as search field on Search Materials screen

Hi MDG experts,

I need to add the field Manufacturer (MFRNR) as a search field in the dropdown on Search Materials screen

In this How to.. In section 5.6 I found that I can manipulate the available search fields in this MDGIMG activity ( Transaction: MDGIMG -> General Settings -> UI Modeling -> Define Field Properties for UI)

I inserted the entry: MARAPURCH MFRNR with tick mark No Selection not set.

Then I execute IMG activity (Transaction: MDGIMG -> Master Data Governance for Material -> Clear UI Metadata Buffers)

BUT the Manufacturer does not appear in the dropdown for fields for selection. Any suggestions to how I include Manufacturer in the dropdown?

I managed to remove 'Industry sector' in the dropdown by setting a tick mark in entry: MATERIAL MBRSH (Tick mark not set in hardcopy)

I also checked that the Manufacturer (MFRNR) field is present in the search model, and if i search for a specific Manufacturer in the Search Term: field the it finds the relevant records.

Best regards

Mikael Brink

    You can add it in the search view and then you can see it in the screen. Create a custom search view and add the fields you require it in search.

    Hello Mikael,

    IF you are using HANA based search then you can just select it in your Search view & regenerate the Search view.

    It will then be as a Search field.
