Maintenance of Template Environments
The maintenance of template environments administers all environments, sub environments, andfunctions, that you have available to you when working with the template.
In this function you can complete the following tasks:
Environments and sub environments are standard, and cannot be changed, this means that they can not be deleted and you are not able to create new environments or sub environments.
Environments and Associated Sub-environments
An Environment is a group of functions. A template is always created for one particular environment and can then access all functions that belong to that environment and it’s sub-environments (for more information seeTemplate). For the most part, the environment provides only those functions and information necessary for the template in its corresponding context.
The SAP System includes environments for the following areas:
Sub-Environments are groups of function that are assigned to the environment. They are organised on the basis on content. A sub-environment can be assigned to many different environments. If you create a function in a sub environment, it is automatically available in all environments which contain the sub environment (see note) A template, however can only be created in an environment.
Functions permit it that, with the use of Templates, cost-driver-relevant data of the SAP System and possible external systems can be accessed. Functions are evaluation procedures with which you can call up the value of a field or the results of a function module.
Functions in Sub-Environments
Functions, that were created in sub-environment 101 are then available in Environments 001, 008 and PAC. Functions that were created in sub-environment 105 are then available in Environments 001 and 008.
