We're wanting to add a value assignment type to a given property tree and are carrying out the configuration activity of "Setting up Property Tree" to do so. Initially, we spaced out node IDs in the property tree by 10 in a way that's similar to as follows:
An additional 9 VATs were eventually needed between VAT_A and VAT_B, resulting in the following:
There's now a desire to add another VAT between A and B, but there are no more node IDs available. Adding between VAT_A and VAT_B again results in the node ID for VAT_B being shifted down to 111.
The configuration documentation for the "Setting up Property Tree" activity explicitly states the following:
Enter numbers in ascending order for the values of the ID field with large enough intervals between the numbers so that you have room to insert value assignment types in your property tree later.
even though the change has been made in Dev, the data seems unaffected. Is there a reason that SAP provides this guidance on the spacing of IDs? My guess is that a changing of node IDs has some impact and should not be done, but we are not sure of what that impact is. Has anyone else faced this?
