Function documentation Processing Hierarchy Parameters Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

Use

You can use this function to process general control parameters for application hierarchies. You can define different control parameters for individual hierarchies of an application.

Prerequisites

In Customizing for the generic hierarchy, you have defined the application and generic control parameters for the hierarchies in the application.

For more information, see Customizing for Logistics – General under Generic Hierarchy Edit Application Parameters.

Features

        If you select an application for which more than one hierarchy is allowed, you can create new hierarchies. To do this, you enter the application ID and a hierarchy ID that does not exist yet. The system displays a warning message. If you confirm your entries, the system goes to the processing screen for hierarchy parameters.

The system copies the parameters as default values that you have defined in Customizing for the generic hierarchy for the application to which the hierarchy belongs.

You can partially process these parameters. For example, you can subsequently specify that the name of a node in a hierarchy must be unique. However, you cannot, for example, change the structures of additional nodes or object-specific attributes.

        If you select a hierarchy for which control data already exists, the system displays the parameters in read-only mode. You can switch to change mode and process the parameters to the extent permitted.

        You can use Business Add-Ins (BAdIs) to define customer-specific processing options.

For more information, see Customizing for Logistics - General under Generic Hierarchy Enhancements Using Business Add-Ins.
