Replacement for CRM_INTLAY_GET_HEADER_GUID in WebClient UI

Two years ago we implemented a classic badi for badi definition CRM_PRODUCT_I_BADI. Within the badi we need to determine the transaction header GUID. For the last two years the badi has operated by calling function module CRM_INTLAY_GET_HEADER_GUID to retrieve the header GUID. This function module still works fine if you are processing from within SAPgui. However, if you are processing from within the WebClient UI the function module no longer works because the header GUID is no longer buffered in that function group.

I have resorted to using function module CRM_ORDERADM_H_GET_OB but I am wondering if anyone knows of a more elegant replacement for function module CRM_INTLAY_GET_HEADER_GUID that will work in the WebClient UI? Perhaps something that pulls the header GUID out of the BOL core? Thanks.

    Technically when you are in the BADI's you are below the BOL layer and have to use the one order API function modules. I prefer using the OW modules instead of the OB, and technically I believe you are supposed to use OW instead.

    The CRM_ORDERADM_H_READ_OW is probably your best bet down in that layer.

    Thank you,

    Thanks very much for the confirmation Stephen. I forget why I ruled out function module CRM_ORDERADM_H_READ_OW but I will revisit this. Thanks again.
