BRFplus Decision Table to create a Value List ("foreign key")

A way to do this is covered in this thorough document by Jocelyn Dart ( But it requires a significant amount of coding - which goes against one of the main strengths of BRFplus IMO. On my current project, I have a requirement to do this "value list/foreign key" constraining for multiple objects - which makes the custom coding overhead even more onerous. Surely this is a "must have" functionality-wise if BRFplus/DSM is truly to become the "Z table killer".

Jocelyn mentions in this posting that she would like to see an easier way to do this in the core product ( Carsten also mentions that the product features are customer-driven.

So 1) is this functionality planned for a future release? and 2) if not, then I would encourage anyone else who might need it to "+1" this post and create some momentum on this feature request.

Hi Jim,

there is no update on that requirement and nothing that is officially on the roadmap, so Jocelyn's approach on getting this requirement covered is still valid.

However, if you want to push this feature request forward, the right channel is

As this is not a "real" question in the sense of the SAP Community and as mentioned a channel for such requests exist, I will close the question.

Best regards,
