How to do Archiving if we maintain residence time in ILM RULES only ?


My doubt is how write job will check the residence time if we fill the residence time in ILM RULES instead of filling in application specific settings. I have a tried with lot of test jobs but every time its taking residence from application specific settings only.

Why ILM has provided that residence rules option if its taking from the application specific settings?

It will be great help if anyone can explain this....

    Hi Sudeep!

    First please make sure all prerequisites for ILM usage are met. For more info read online help:

    Check whether "ILM Store Service" settings can be seen in tr. SARA under "Customizing >>

    Cross-Archiving Object Customizing: >> Technical Settings".

    If not, it means ILM is not activated in SAP System.

    • Thanks for your response !!

      we have activated ILM and configured retention time for some objects and it's working fine.

      We are evaluating usage of residence time but residence category is not available for most of our objects like fi_documnt,pp_ order, SD objects etc.

      We tried to change the customising for some objects via irm_cust to enable the objects for residence and created the residence rules but write program seem to check the application specific customizing and it does not pick the residence rules set . Is there any program changes required in addition apart from irm_cust to enable rst policy category so that ilm residence rules are checked ?

      Looking forward for your response....
