How to enable F4 help of custom fields (in custom entity) in SAP MDG?

Hello Experts,

For SAP MDG 7.1, MM data model, we have created a custom entity. As per the requirement custom attributes are created to this custom entity. Custom attributes are created using standard data elements. Idea to create same field in custom entity is to use custom field as global field which will be responsible to derive values at local sales org level.

For e.g. In MM Data modelling, Z-Attribute has been created for "Material Pricing Group" named as ZKONDM having data element KONDM (same as standard field).
Data element KONDM has a value table "T178".

However at UI level under custom enity section, attribute ZKONDM doesnt provide F4 values, whereas Standard Field KONDM under entity 'MVKEGRPNG 'with same data element provides F4 values.

Please advise how to enable F4 help for Z-Attribute at UI?

    Hi, please check the guide "How To... Master Data Governance for Material Extend MDG-M User Interface (EhP6 on)": https://archive.sap.com/documents/docs/DOC-30192
    Chapter 5.12 "Search Help Sequence (in OVP and Search UI)" contains the priority how a search help is found in MDG-M UI.

    More guides can be found here: https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/SAPMDM/Documentation%3A+Material+Data

    U can create a search help with the same value table as standard and assign it to the custom entity.

    Best Regards

    Hello,

    Please assign the Search Help in the Custom Field at the FPM level. This will enable the F4 Help for that field. Go to the Component Customizing, open the UIBB in which the field is enhanced, in the field properties, you will find a separate Seach Help option. Please use the same search help of the standard.
