Enterprise Search - problem adding fields from one Node to the Response Attributes of another Node

287 Views Last edit Jun 27, 2018 at 09:48 AM 2 rev

Our developers are attempting modify to an already modified Enterprise Search template; It's a copy of the standard MATERIAL template, copied into our own Software Component.

This is a screenshot of the "Define Nodes" step; pretty standard in comparison to the standard template. In fact the only changes are that our Z fields have been added to the MATERIAL node and we have added some stock level variables MABST and BSBE to the MATERIAL_PLANT node.

When we try to update the MATERIAL node Response Attributes (in "Define Search Settings") with these new fields from the MATERIAL_PLANT node (plus the WERKS field) the MATERIAL_PLANT node is not available for selection.

We would like some advice or insight to understand why fields from the MATERIAL_DESCRIPTION node can be added to Response Attributes of the MATERIAL NODE, while fields from the MATERIAL_PLANT node cannot. This is despite (to our untrained eyes) the underlying tables having similar structures;

  • Material Description is table MAKT, with a key of MANDT, MATNR, SPRAS;
  • Plant Data is table MARC, with a key of MANDT, MATNR, WERKS;

System is Netweaver 702 SP16 running ECC6 EHP5.

thanks very much
