Testing a new output type with external send NACE / Billing

Hello everyone,

I would need your advice concerning following customization topic for the SD module transaction for Invoice creation VF01 .

I have a special requirement to create new output type for the warranty certificates that will be sent by email to customers automatically when the invoice is created and saved. I've found out that I can do this by adding entry in NACE as follows:

Can you let me know how can I make this output type be assigned automatically to every invoice creation with VF01 ?

I big challenge is the testing phase in the test environment QA, because we can disturb the customers by sending them obsolete documents by email . Could you please provide your opinion with a special procedure that shall be used in this situation in order to make the tests in QA and not disturbing customers ?

Thank you very much ,

Rgd,

Andreea Pascal

    I think your first question applies to config; output procedures and access sequences. This is not an ABAP programming issue.

    To the second question, ask your basis administrators to change your test system so that the outputs in SOST are queued but not sent out of your system. You can then create and view invoice documents to test without any external effects.

    Not sure what efforts you put to achieve this requirement. On your comment,

    how can I make this output type be assigned automatically to every invoice creation with VF01 ?


    while creation of invoice, output would not be generated automatically. After saving the billing document, with ABAP coding, you can automate the process. Discuss with your ABAP team

    • Hello ,

      In fact, my question was how can I test the external email configuration for my forms without disturbing customers with data from test system. If the automation is made, than anyone playing in the testing environment and creating invoices will send my forms by email to every customer used in the invoice creation that has his email set up in his BP data in the system . This is what I would wish to avoid after achieving automation of warranty certificates creation printouts with external send.
