Editing StatusLocate this document in the navigation structure

The editing status reflects the state of the object or entry in terms of the processing cycle. For example, it can give the user information about whether the item can be accessed or its level of completion.

Editing Status for Table Items
The list report allows users to view the editing status of the objects displayed. The editing status is calculated from the draft administrative data that is added when using the Business Object Processing Framework (BOPF).

Editing Status


Draft: my own draft

Active version

Active version with draft created by another user; no longer locked

Active version with draft created by another user; locked

Access to Administrative Data

For the statuses Draft, Unsaved Changes, and Locked, a link accesses a popover to allow you to view the user who last changed the object and the time of the change. Note that if the user's full name is not available in the master data in the back-end system, only the technical user name displays.

Editing Status Filter

A static filter attribute is available for all applications, which is added to the smart filter bar of the list report for all draft-enabled applications by default. This filter allows users to search for objects or entries in a specific state.

The drop-down values are as follows:
Table 2: Drop-Down Values
Drop-Down Value Description


Shows all results except duplicates. This means that in the case of an edit draft, the drafts shall be shown but not the corresponding active version of the same document.

Own Draft

Shows the drafts that the current user can display or edit.

Locked by Another User

Shows the active versions that are locked by other users. The current user cannot edit these versions.

Unsaved Changes by Another User

Shows the active versions that were edited by other users, but are no longer locked. The current user can edit and overwrite these versions, and the previous draft will be overwritten.

No Changes

Shows active versions that have no corresponding draft.


The default search filter is All, even if the user clears the filter value.

Disabling the Editing Status Filter

If desired, the editing status filter can be disabled after you generate your app. For information, see Editing Status Filter.
