Creating MRUs via code

Hi,

We are thinking about automating MRU creation via a report or something (ABAP code). Is there any FM which does this? What would be the best approach for this considering I see there is one ISU_DB_MRU_UPDATE FM available, but its use is restricted to "internal". Should I be using BDC instead ?

Thanks,

AM

Try tagging this to Utilities as well.

I have seen some attempts to automate something where SAP itself has seen no need (or possibility) to automate all these years and I'd advise against it.

One can argue all day long that the way MRU und Portion maintenance functionality is implemented in IS-U is bad software design, but it will not change the fact that input validations are tied to dynpros and the "dark mode" for ISU_S* "service" function modules in Function group E15A remains not implemented.

The attempts to automate I have seen came out of trying to "appropriate" MRUs und Portions for use in excess of what they were intended for by SAP. Now there are over 5000 MRUs in the system and the vast majority of them have "nothing" to do with performing meter readings. Still, they require scheduling... which has not been automated.

BDC is inadequate as replacement for missing API.
