  • Wizard: SWU_EWCD
    • Choose the Business object and event that you want raised
    • Choose the change document object and the type of event (create / change / delete)
  • Set up change docs using SCDO if required
  • Transaction: SWED, define workflow properties for change docs
  • Transaction: SWEC is the change document event linkage table maintenance transaction. Allows for restricting to only changes to certain fields

2. Logistics Information System (LIS)
When an exception is reached in LIS an event is raised. 

  • Wizard: SWU_EWLIS
    • Choose the Business object and event that you want raised
    • Choose the LIS exception that you want to raise the above event for
  • Transaction: AWUW is the maintenance transaction for the LIS exception linkages with business object events

3. Business Transaction Events (BTE)
If a BTE is raised then raise a business object event. 

  • Wizard: SWU_EWBTE
    • Give a new function module name together with an existing function group
    • Supply the applicable business transaction product and event (See transaction FIBF for BTEs)
    • Choose the Business object and event that you want raised

4. Change to HR Master Data
Changes to HR master data can trigger business object events. 

  • Linking object type to Infotype
    • Transaction: SWEHR1
  • Event linkage
    • Transaction: SWEHR2 (SAP), SWEHR3 (Customer)
    • Link the object type, infotype, subtype (as defined above) and update activity to object type and event

5. Status Management
Changes in statuses of business documents can trigger business object events. 

  • Transaction: BSVW
    • Customer settings (for user status) and System settings (for system status)
    • Add your status object category, schema
    • Choose the Business object and event that you want raised
    • Select the line and add the status restrictions
      • Add the particular user / system status
      • Select inactive = checked if you want to raise the event if the status was turned off
      • Select inactive = NOT checked if you want to raise the event if the status was turned on

6. Message Control
Output messages processed through message control can be configured to raise a business object event. 

  • Transaction: NACE
    • Select the applicable application and add your output type of transmission medium 9
    • Make sure your access sequence and procedure are configured in conjunction with the output type
    • Once the output type is configured add the condition record which specifies the business object event to be raised.
