Why to set object & object component status as "released"??

Hi,

I have created a subtype of object IDOCINVOIC and have added an additional attribute to it.

I have set its status to "Implemented"....and it works fine.

Why do we set the status of business objects and components to "Released" ????

Should I also make the status released??...... even if the functionality the working fine without it

    Hi,

    You have to set the status to Release as to make available your business object and its components to the

    outside world.

    If a BAPI wants to call this Business object from say portal then we should make sure that it should be

    Released and generated... or if a portal wants to use the method of Business object then also it should

    be released and Generated.

    Hello,

    Unless the status of the object and its components is in the released status, the BO cannot be transported to other servers like quality and production.

    Hope this will help.

      Actually that is not true. You can transport them as long as the BO is at least set to implemented.

    hi,

    We can call released Objects and components at the Runtime. They are considered ready for use.

    There is functionally no difference. The status is mainly for developers - i.e. if it's released then be careful because you may be modifying something that's already in production.

    It is kind of a lock like in the program you turn on the modification restriction. The released object cannot be modified until or otherwise it is unreleased.

      There's functionally no difference, they behave exactly the same & both can be modified.
