Function documentationPost-Processing Framework Actions


You control the status changes in change transactions as well as project and maintenance cycles using Post-Processing Framework (PPF) actions. Whenever a transaction changes its status (for example, Tested), certain Change Request Management actions have to be carried out, such as the release of a transport request. The system performs these actions either automatically while saving a change, or a user executes them explicitly.

Note Note

Change Request Management uses generic PPF actions, which you can adjust to your requirements. In contrast to PPF actions, Change Request Management actions run in the PPF action (HF_SET_STATUS), dependent from the user status.

End of the note.

You can only execute actions under specific conditions. Which actions are executable depends on the status of the change transaction and the status of the respective project or maintenance cycle.

You can link actions with calls of dialog boxes in the WebClient UI, in which the user can, for example, enter or confirm data. The dialog boxes can be displayed before or after processing the actions. For more information about configuring the dialog box framework, see the Customizing under Start of the navigation path SAP Solution Manager Next navigation step Capabilities Next navigation step Change Request Management Next navigation step Implementation of Dialog Boxes in WebClient UI End of the navigation path.

Note Note

You need knowledge of the WebClient UI and ABAP development, to adjust the dialog box framework.
