Answers to Technical Questions

  • How is the account assignment between operations and digital signatures defined?

When a digital signature and comment are added to an order operation this information is stored in table SIGNS.

A record is added to table AFVC_DS, this table stores the account assignment between a digital signature and an operation..

 The field AFVC_DS.-SIGN_ID provides the link to the digital signature table SIGNS.

 The field AFVC_DS-OBJNR provides the link to the operation (this field will contain the operation object number).
