You can use transaction AGS_DCM_CUST_IFDOCU to create custom attributes and technologies, and to do the assignment between the both. You should always use it instead of the lite version for customer attribute creation if you have to perform multiple or complex operations.

When you run the transaction you will be presented with the following screen:

The possible functions are described in the following.

Define Custom Attributes

In tab Define Attributes you can maintain customer attributes. Standard attributes are not editable. Per default all attributes (standard or custom) available in the system are displayed. The following actions are possible:

  • Add Attribute: to create a new custom attribute in customer namespace (Y* or Z*). Provide the technical identifier of the attribute and a speaking name for it. Note that the technical identifier must be unique in the system and must not contain special or blank characters.

You also have the possibility to provide input for a value help. Currently it’s only possible to assign a domain from the Data Dictionary to the custom attribute. Value helps via table / field name combination or a dedicated search help are not respected in the Integration Repository UI. Note that if you provide a domain value the custom attribute automatically turns into a dropdown field. In addition, you can set the cardinality and the system dependency (true = system-dependent attribute). See chapter Maintain Interface Attributes for more details on those two characteristics.

  • Copy Attribute: to copy an existing attribute with all properties. Note that you have to adjust the technical identifier (at least move it to customer namespace).
  • Delete Attribute: to remove a custom attribute from the system. Note that a custom attribute could be assigned to multiple interface technologies, so perform this action with care.
  • Save / Cancel: to save or discard all unsaved changes.

Define Custom Interface Technologies

In tab Define Interface Technology you can create a custom interface technology. Standard interface technologies are not editable. Per default all interface technologies (standard or custom) available in the system are displayed. The following actions are possible:

  • Add Technology: to create a new custom interface technology in customer namespace (Y* or Z*). Provide the technical identifier of the interface technology and a speaking name for it. Note that the technical identifier must be unique in the system and must not contain special or blank characters.

  • Copy Technology: to copy an existing technology.
  • Delete Technology: to delete custom technologies system-wide. Standard technologies can’t be deleted.
  • Save / Cancel: to save or discard all unsaved changes.

Assign Attributes to Technologies

In tab Assign Attributes to Technology you can assign custom and standard attributes to a custom or standard interface technology. First select the interface technology type and subtype (if available), as well as the attribute group attributes should be assigned to. The system shows all currently assigned attributes according to this selection. The following actions are possible.

 

 

  • Assign Attribute: to assign attributes which exist in the system to the current context. You can use the value help to load the attributes. A sequence number is assigned to the attribute automatically which you can still change manually. Sequence numbers define the order the attributes appear in the Integration Repository UI. You can re-arrange the attributes by changing the sequence numbers, however, each number must be unique.
  • Un-assign Attribute: to remove an assigned customer attribute from the current context. You can’t un-assign standard attributes.
  • Save / Cancel: to save or discard all unsaved changes.
