PR release strategy

I need to create a new release strategy.

My problem is there is an existing release strategy with classification. The new release strategy require exactly the same classification. Same document type, same material, same account assignment category etc. The only different is that if the PR is raise by certain user, then it will go to the new release strategy, otherwise it will still use the old release strategy.

I tried to add "Name of requisitioner/requester" to identify the user who raise the PR. When I raise the PR by entering the requisitioner name in "Requisitioner" column, the PR created still go to old release strategy.

May I know what is the problem? How can I identify who create the PR?

May I know whether what I am trying to do is the correct way or maybe there is another better way to do it?

Thanks and regards,

JT

    Hi JT

    In your case, there are two issues.

    a) requisition created by : the person who loged in

    b) requisition requested by : the person who needs the material in the palnt, but the person who actually entering in the system is different.

    Please choose which is your case.

    Solution :

    First case :

    Add another characteristic with CEBAN-ERNAM. --> Assign this characeteristic to the existing class. Created a new release strategy with this (login person name for whom different strategy required). Also add the value of the other login names for the exisiting release strategies.

    Second case :

    Add another characteristic with CEBAN-AFNAM. --> Assign this characeteristic to the existing class. Created a new release strategy with this (requisitioner name for whom different strategy required). Also add the value of the other requisitioner names for the exisiting release strategies.

    One more setting is, you have to do "Requisitioner" field as required entry instead of optional. But, any name can be entered manually. So you can't restrict teh input and hence release strategies may not trigger always. Better choose first case. Log in names are limited and hence release strategy triggers automatically always without fail.

    Hope, your question is answered.

    Hi,

    view the table EKKO and find the field name ERNAM the creator of the object and the same field can be found in the structure CEBAN

    In classification u can use this field as one of the character.

    And you specify the character in the strategy.

    Hope this will solve ur issue.

    • Create a new characteristics in CT04 as Name of requisitioner/requester using Structure CEBAN and field AFNAM.

      Assign this char in the class you r already using for Release Strategy.

      Create a new Release Strategy for the same Release group and in "Classification" option assign "Name of requisitioner/requester" for which this Strategy to be applied.

      And for Old Strategy Assign rest of the "Name of requisitioner/requester" and SAVE.

    Hi

    Add the new chracteristic created with structure CEBAN & field ERNAM

    Add it to the relase class being used.

    Configure the new release strategy

    now goto CL24N, enter the PR release class

    two release strategy will be displyed old & the new one.

    In the old one for the ERNAM charactrerisitic add the Value Notequal to requisitoner XYZ (symbol for not equla to is less than & gretaer than)

    Now in the new one add equla to requsitioner XYZ

    This way the relase strategy will work if the user raises the PR then new one will trigger.

    Thanks & regards

      Hi Adwait,

      FYI, for my old release strategy, there are some other characteristic that I didn't list out. Maybe I should list it out for better understanding.

      Current Release Strategy:

      Release Strategy A - User ID, Doc Type A

      Release Strategy B - Not Equal To User ID, Doc Type A

      Release Strategy C - Blank, Doc Type C

      Release Strategy D - Blank, Doc Type D

      Release Strategy E - Blank, Doc Type E

      After I added User ID into CEBAN-ERNAM, only Release Strategy A and B is working. Release strategy C, D and E are not working at all.

      Should I add all the respective user ID into the release strategy like this?

      Release Strategy A - User ID-A, Doc Type A

      Release Strategy B - Not Equal To User ID-A, Doc Type A

      Release Strategy C - User ID-C, Doc Type C

      Release Strategy D - User ID-D, Doc Type D

      Release Strategy E - User ID-E, Doc Type E

      Thanks & regards,

      JT

    Hi all,

    I still encounter problem for my release strategy.

    Although the new release strategy is working fine but old release strategy doesn't work now.

    What value should I put into the CEBAN-ERNAM for old release strategy?

    Thanks & regrads,

    JT
