Triggering Workflow using Business Transaction Events (BTE)
What are Business
· The enhancement technique (Open FI) that were developed for Financial Accounting Component.
· Open FI is based upon the following principles:
o Application developers must define their interface in a function module, an assignment table is read in the accompanying code and the customer modules assigned are called dynamically.
This can be easily adopted / customized to the business needs
wherein SAP does not provide the standard functionality through customization or
enhancements. This functionality is primarily used in FI in the areas of
dunning, credit management, banking etc. For Example: Standard Dunning
functionality in SAP sends the notice to the Pay to partner function (based on
the partner functions in SD module i.e. pay to hits the books in Accounts
Receivable in FI module), whereas the requirement could be to send the same to
Bill to party, based on the premise that the original invoice was sent to him as
per the partner functions in SD.
Basic steps in configuring the Business Transaction Events:
Company A would like to fill the Assignment field with
custom value ‘Demo BTE’ when an accounting document is posted for a certain
Company Code for accounting purposes to analyze the data. To accomplish this
requirement, Company A will use the Business Transaction Event 1120, Post
Document: SAP Internal Field Substitution. Depending on the business scenarios,
generally the reference document number field and assignment number field will
be populated with a unique identifier for analyzing the accounting data. For the
purpose of this document, I have used a scenario of populating the text field
while creating accounting document.
· IMG Menu Path: Financial Accounting ->Financial Accounting Global Settings-> Business Transaction Events-> Environment-> Infosystem (Processes).
· Execute the search with the defaults.
· Find the correct interface for updating the document.
· Place the cursor on the key 00001120 and click on Sample Function Module
