is there a limit on number of object links to DIR, and any impacts of this

Hello All,

Can you please let us know if there is any limit on the No of Object links to be maintained in the Object Link tab of DIR,

Our major Concern comes as there is One DIR logo / symbol, which is maintained in most of the Material Master around 1000s

and also the same DIR is used in all the Service and maintenance Notification as an Attachment, so the list of Object link in DIR Object link tab is going beyond control above 10000s,

i wanted to know if there is any limit on no of Object links to be maintained in DIR object links, and is there any impact on DMS functionality if the list is ever increasing,

( also can i know if there is any workaround that the DIR is only displayed going in to Material master or Notifications but the same is not listed in the DIR object links tab as here it is going on increasing,)

Thanks and kind regards

Kumar S

    Kumar,

    As far as object linking is concerned there is no limit as long as you have the capability to object link. Object link will not have any major effect on performance.

    Hi kumar,

    There is no limit for objects which you are linking. But it will increase the complexities in the processing perticular object values.

    Suppose you link to MARA,LFA1 etc. in real time you need to maintain the document and changes with the object links.

    So less the object links , better practice in DMS.

    I hope you will get answered more from business prospective.

    Regards,

    Ravindra

    Hi Kumar,

    generally there is no limit on the number of objects which can be linked to a document info record. But please note that the system has to read out all the object data for each object if you navigate to the object link tab. So if there are a huge number of objects linked this will have an influence on your system performance. So I would recommend you to not link too much objects

    to a document info record.

    Best regards,

    Christoph

      Hello Christoph and Every one,

      Thanks for the responses given, and providing a hint not to have many Object links, as it could be an performance issue going to the DMS DIR Object link TAB,

      But in this particular case we are not assigning the Objectlinks going by the DMS Object links TAB, but it is done in other way round, going by the Equipment or Notification Screens,

      There are few Health and safety document ( Which is created as a DIR in DMS) which needs to be assigned in Most of the Equipment and the new notifications created, and this document DIR is assigned from the Equipment and notification Screen,

      And we may not be interested to go to the DIR to browse and Assign the Object Links, so as we do not frequently go and check the DIR or Use DIR Object link TAB for Object Link assignment will it in any ways cause performance Issue here??

      And also as asked earlier can we have a one way attachment like the DIR is Visible in the Equipment or Notification Screen, but the DIR is not adding up the Equipment or Notification details in its Object links TAB, (by development or it is totally illogical to ask for)

      Thanks and Kind regards

      S Kumar
