Avoid PPM Item version creation using FM - /RPM/ITEM_MODIFY


We are trying to create a PPM Item from an existing one (clone) using /RPM/ITEM_MODIFY funtion module. Initially we have tested this using a standalone program and the FM creates an item successfully also it generated a new external ID, however when we integrated it with the standard portfolio item screen (UI) with the help of an FPM button click, it creates the item with a new version of the original item, for instance (100693.01). We would just like to create a brand new item, please let us know if there are any parameters that need to be changed to avoid creation of a new version.

Please help.

    You can call /RPM/ITEM_MODIFY in 'N' mode

    to achieve this pass iv_change_mode = 'N' for creating Item.

    (Multiple Item Creation Mode)

    Then call /rpm/item_modify with iv_change_mode = 'U' after calling

    /RPM/ITEM_DISPLAY to complete the Item creation process.
