Restrictions belonging relation between Change Request and Corrections?

Hi all,

In standard change process I only can create one change document (correction) to one change request.

Releation 1:1.

Is there a technical restriction belonging the relation between the change request and the corrections?

Does anyone has experience with a 1:n relation in the change process?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Regards,

Alex

    Yes there is a restriction

    For each change document you can have one change request which compriesed of approval and type of change request associated with it.

    Hi Prakhar,

    what you described is a process-restriction. It is not a technical restriction.

    E.g.: I have a change belonging BI. Therefore I have to change things in BI and ERP 6.0. Why not using one change request with two corrections? One for BI and one for ERP 6.0.

    So you are right if you want to create for that situation two change requests. There is no relation between them. How do you control them?

    Administration and documentation is important. But it should be useful.

    And I am able to set up more than one corrections to one change request technicaly in SolMan.

    But is there a deeper technical restriction inside which raise problems later?

    For me it seems that SAP wants that a 1:1 relation is used. But why?

    Does anyone have an idea?

    Thanks.

    Regards,

    • Technical restriction is ...whenever you have a change reqest and it has status changed then it is in turn changing the status of the previous doucment which is change document

      so incase if you have one change document having 2 change request and later status of one change request is changed then how and what will be the status of your previous document because other chagne request is still with created status

      Hope it clarifies the technical problem.

    Hi Prakhar,

    thanks for your answer.

    The change of the change request status by the correction is done by an action called "SET_PREDOC".

    I think it is also possible to define an own action which set the status of the predoc only when all sub-documents are finished. Or it can be solved with conditions.

    I don't want to be fussy. The restrictions you described are right but they can be solved.

    Do you know if there could be other problems with the transactions or relations?

    Thank you.

    Regards,

    Alex
