You can archive completed and paid warranty claims (that you only require for reporting and displaying history) in the background and thus reduce the load on the database. In this way you can improve performance when searching for and processing current claims.

SAP makes no particular recommendations as to when warranty claims should be archived since warranty claim processing can be used very flexibly and therefore the business requirements can be very different in this respect.


SAP Standard Archiving serves as the basis for archiving warranty claims.

You can find further information in the standard documentation under Introduction to Data Archiving (CA-ARC) .


The warranty claims have been defined as relevant to archiving.

Note Note

You can only set the archiving indicator automatically in mass processing via action TAR1. You can remove it again via action TAR2. Neither of these actions can be seen in the action box, can therefore not be triggered manually. Warranty claims that have been defined for archiving cannot be changed. They can only be displayed.

End of the note.


  • Transaction WTY_SARA is used to write archiving data. This transaction corresponds to the standard transaction SARA. The archiving object is WTY_CLAIM. There is only a limited technical display for reading the archiving data in this transaction. The application-specific transaction WTY_ARCHIV offers a better display of the archived warranty claims.

  • The system checks the following authorization objects: C_WTY_OBJ and C_WTY_STAT.

  • The following data is archived:

    Header/version/item data

    Long texts

    Recall objects

    Recall history

    Pricing data
