    Hi Vineet,

    Pls read the IMG Activity Documentation (just click next to "allowed change of notification type") for further details. Content for your reference.

    Allowed Change of Notification Type

    In this step, you define the changes to the notification type that are allowed.

    This step only deals with the changes to the notification type that are made when you create or change notifications using the simplified transactions (IQS21 or IQS22).

    When creating notifications, you can only change the notification type under the following conditions:

    The change is explicitly allowed by the Customizing table.

    The notification still has the status 'Outstanding'.

    When changing notifications, you can only change the notification type under the following conditions:

    The change is explicitly allowed by the Customizing table.

    The notification still has the status 'Outstanding'.

    The original notification type has the origin "General notification".

    You can only allow the notification type to be changed, if this will not lead to any inconsistencies.

    Example

    You have created a notification of type "General notification" and want to change this into a notification of type "Quality notification" to record defect data in the notification items.

    Standard settings

    The standard system contains several changes to the notification type that are not considered critical by SAP.

    Recommendation

    Use the customer exit 'QQMA0029' to check for inconsistencies caused by the field values, when you change the notification type. If inconsistencies occur, you can use the exit to prevent this type of change. The standard system contains examples of function modules for each notification type for this customer exit. You can find the fields that are considered critical by SAP in the coding for the relevant examples.

    Saurabh.
