Generic Object Services (BC-SRV-GBT) 

Use

There are general functions that you want to execute with various documents (in general: object). Some of these functions, like for example archiving, require detailed knowledge about the object and can therefore only be realized for a specific object type with a great deal of programming. On the other hand, the generic object services only need to know that the object exists to be effective.

Entering a note for a document is a generic object service. The object is the application document.

Prerequisites

In order to be able to take part in the generic object services, a document must belong to an object type in the Business Object Repository (BOR). The application must also publish the document as an application object. For further information see Application Connection to Object Services.

With the exception of the object history, all services are offered as pushbuttons in a separate "toolbox" window. The symbol appears on the top left of the screen as a pushbutton in an application that uses the object services. The toolbox appears when the button is pressed.
