Article Change Documents for Custom Fields



We have lot of custom fields defined in the article master. When the custom fields are changed through the online transaction, the changes are recorded in the change document tables (CDHDR / CDPOS). If the changes are made through the "BAPI_MATERIAL_MAINTAINDATA_RT" the changes are not getting recorded in the change document tables and hence they cannot be viewed under "Environment -> Display Changes". Lately, this is causing big issues as users are using the custom attributes more seriously now..and we're having issues tracing back the changes...Users do not use online transactions to make the changes..The changes are submitted through the portal which are then submitted through the ARTMAS IDOC which in turn calls the BAPI....

We want to activate the change document functionality through IDOCs/BAPI....Is it configurable or has to be coded somewhere in the BAPI where it generates the custom segments for the custom fields....

Any help would be greatly appreciated
