Hide Long text depending on BP business role


I created some long texts assigned to the object BUT000, I want the text appear or disappear /enable or disable depending on the business role assigned to the Business partner.

With the Business transactions is quite easy because you can asign a text determination to the transaction type or to the item category but I don't see way you can acomplish the same in the BP scenario.

I found in SAP Customizing Implementation Guide->Cross-Application Components->SAP Business Partner->Business Partner->Basic Settings->Notes but if you read the info about this menu it says "These activities are not relevant if you are using a SAP CRM system." anyway if I go through this path to try to acomplish what I need, To select the BP roles uses the table TBZ0 as a reference to select the BP so I can't select it because they are stored in TB003 and I don't find the way to maintain the TBZ0. Any idea?

I'm open to two kind of solutions:

- Config changes

- Enhancement implementations

I don't want to modify the web ui, because If I must do it, I already know how 😊

    Well after "some" time I had the opportunity to investigate little further, I found the note:

    1773537 - FAQ: TM: Texts for CRM business partners on Web UI

    So there's no text determination procedure for BPs by standard, the only solution is enhance/modify the standard source, to be honest I don't think the effort really worth it for my customer scenario, but just to give you an idea, check the hardcoded "DEFAULT" in the Class CL_BUPA_IL_NOTES and think about replacing those hardocded "DEFAULT" by the BP Role ID, of course you must have the Account lifcycle activated otherwise one partner can have more than one BP role and all this stuff won't work, nice uh? 😈

    I hope it helps.
