WBS Element name change after ALE

Our client wants to ALE Project definition and WBS elements to their HR system. The WBS will be used to post labor in the CATS system that resides on HR. BAPI_PROJECT_SAVE_REPLICA works well for duplicating the PROJ/PRPS database and enables labor charging.

However, they also want to be able to change the project and/or WBS element NAME after the project/WBS has been released and used in the remote system. SAP ALE logic locks the WBS name after 'REL' status in the source system, so they have requested a 'custom' interface that will support the name change.

It appears all the bapis/function modules available only pass the name, thus not supporting any change of the name. Anyone have experience with such functionality?

Thank you.

    AFAIK between different systems only the external name identify the WBS, as the internal number is managed by number range and may (and will) be different in the two systems and so how would the distant system identify the correct WBS as I suppose that some costs and/or confirmations will be copied back to original system ? Can you check internal number of "same" WBS in HR and other system ?

    Regards,

    Raymond
