COST CENTER as Driving dimension in BPF

Hello everyone!

In my BPF I wanna use cost center as driving dimension, of course it does not have Reviewer/Performer as properties. This note says you need to create a ZCOSTCNTR and add /ERP/SENDER and /ERP/REVIEWER, Capture manually in 'maintain' all the cost centers needed to use in the BPF with their respective rev/perf and then implement BAdi RSBPCB_SETUSER. Then use /ERP/COSTCNTR as driving dimension in bpf and owner dimension in WS.

So, my question first of all is.. Is this the best approach? there is no other way to use Cost Center as driving dimension?

Does someone have implemented this BADI and worked?

When a new cost center is added to a company the user needs to add it manually in 'maintain'?

In this Note says to use the ZCOSTCNTR as driving dimension, so I'm confused.

I'm implementing BPC 7.51 NW 10.1 (RTC)

Having at least one property as owner/performer is mandatory. In earlier versions of BPC performer reviewer were mandatory. However, since BPF is now integrated with work status, the owner property can server as the performer. The dimension that contains that property is called the driving dimension for BPF. This is not clear from the online help unless if you search for BPC help for BPF driving dimension and click a few links. I did that for you and found the following links. I hope they are helpful

As far as the specific code in the BADi, it will depend entirely on the configuration of the driving dimension that is providing the required properties.
