Adding a control parameter in SAP EM

Hi,

I have this requirement to add a control parameter in EM.
The scenario involves a status code being sent by a third party system and based on the status code received, I have to update the status description in SAP EM.
Currently, I have a control parameter defined to receive the status code value.
But the third party won't be sending any status description, and hence I need to update the description from a master table of status codes already loaded in EM.
The question is can I define a control parameter in EM , without a mapping field available from third party systems and accordingly use it to update the status description.

Regards,

Suman

    Hi Sam,

    yes you can have a Control Parameter independently from Appl. system. Just enter it in /SAPTRX/TSC0PD.

    You can then update it in the rule set with Activity PARAMETER_CHANGE_NEW.

    For description you need to think how to achieve it. Either store it as additional parameter or only read when data is retrieved for display.

    Best regards,

    Hi Sam,

    why don't you use the Status Profile in EM. Then you would not need an extra table for the Status descriptions and you use an already existing activity to update the status value.

    Best regards,

    Hi Steffen,

    Master table already exists.
    I just need to update the status for inactive serial numbers received.
    In that case my query is can we declare a control parameter independently in EM, without having to map it with any Application system parameter.

    Regards,

    Sam
