Automated Note Search & Customer Code Detection III (release 3.0)

After publishing the blog Automated Note Search and Customer Code Detection, and Automated Note Search & Customer Code Detection II (release 2.0) a great expectation around the new application was created and we received many positive comments as well as requests for piloting. Now, we are ready to release a new version 3.0 with some new functionalities that will be described through this blog. We also fixed some minor bugs detected by our pilot customers. 


What’s new?

I will mention here just the major changes. A more detailed description will be provided in the corresponding pilot note:


1.- New selection screen with more options for tracing web applications:

The new “Execution Data” options, allow searching notes for most of web applications like:

  • BSP Applications
  • Web Dynpro
  • CRM Webclient Applications
  • CRM UI Frame




We can see here the process to search notes for CRM UI Frame:




When press execute button we will see a popup asking us to start the recording:



 When Push the “Start Recording” button the browser with the CRM UI Frame application will be opened:




Then we can logon and run the process we want to find notes:





When finish the process, we can close the browser window, and go to the popup of the tool to stop the recording:




The TBOM trace will be done:




And then you get the result tree where you can find notes like on previous versions of the tool.


2.- Open trace from other systems via RFC

Press “Open Trace” button, you can enable RFC destination field with the Button “RFC Use/Not”:




If you enable this field, you can use any of the RFC destinations that have the tool installed to open an existing trace and search notes from a source system.


If you open a trace using RFC option, all the navigation (to objects, custom coding and customizing tables) will open the RFC system to show them, and the note search will be done with the Support Packages of the RFC system.


3.- Delete an existing trace

There is a new button “Delete Trace”:





A popup will open to allow you to delete an existing trace from the database.

  • Hi Ivan Martin,

    Thanks for sharing the news about this tool.
    I liked the way SAP involved the community for this tool. I’m sure it was beneficial for both SAP and for customers. I hope there will be similar program in the future from SAP.

    Is there already info about the availability of release 3.0?

    • Hi Peter,
      We mean to release it in the first days of the next week as Thursday and Friday is public holiday hear in Spain.
      I agree with you that involving the community was great!.
      E.g You’ll have notived that some of your suggestions of improvement for the tool are included in release 3.0.
      Best Regards,
    • Hi Carlos,

      Found a note to myself that I should check this SAP Note 1580615 again.

      This note is still only SAP internally released. Do you have any info when it might be possible for “normal” customer to use this seemingly very useful tool?

      BR, Johan

        • Thanks for quick answer. One can only hope that the release is in the near future – at least this year! This taking into consideration that quite some time has passed by without any information – at least not in this blog.

          Again, this program seems very effective and a time saver. I guess a lot of us in SAP land would really really like to have this program in our tool bag.

          BR, Johan
