Adding Activities

Introduction

It is possible to add add activities to existing entities. Follow the steps described in this guide to add an activity.

Step 1: Define the activity

If you want to add an activity you start with defining how the activity can be derived from the data.

  1. Define to which entity the activity belongs (sales order, delivery, etc.).
  2. Define on which level the change happens (header or item change).
  3. Determine which field changes from an old value to a new value. Also define if any, what extra logic is involved. Note: In SAP the change will be the FNAME field in the CDPOS table combined with the information stored in VALUE_OLD and VALUE_NEW fields.

Step 2: Update the change log filtering

The next step is to update the change log filtering to include the required FNAME.
Follow these steps to update the change log filter.

Step

Action

1

Open the SAP Connector in your development environment.

2

Go to the Data tab and locate the Change log folder in the 1. Input folder.

3

Double click on the CDPOS table.

4

In the Query field locate the following line:
+ '&where=' + urlencode(CDPOS_filter); and CTRL+click on CDPOS_filter .

Note: If the variable Table_filter is used for tje CDPOS_filter locate the line: var Table_filter := CDPOS_filter; and CTRL+click on CDPOS_filter .

5

In the CDPOS filter expression CTRL+click on CDPOS_FNAME_values.

6

Add the FNAME to the list to make sure that the filed values are retrieved for event creation.

Below is an example recording of adding an activity.

Step 3: Define the activity in the SAP Connector

In the SAP Connector the activities are defined in the Events tables in the 3. Event log creation folder. The Events folder contains a subfolder with the event log creation tables for each entity defined in the SAP Connector. See illustration below for an example.

Follow these steps to add the new activity in the SAP Connector

Step

Action

1

Go to the Data tab and locate the Events folder in the 3. Event log creation folder.

2

Click on the event log creation table to which to which the activity must added based on what you defined earlier in Step 1: Define the activity

3

Double click on the Activity expression in the table item list on the right to and update the expression with the new activity. See illustration below.

4

Add the activity to the case statement in the Activity order expression in the Events preprocessing table to make sure that the events are put in the correct order in the event log. See illustrations below for an example.

📘

Note

To ensure consistency you can create a constant containing the activity name in the Globals table and use this in the Activity expression.
