Brief overview of the entities relevant for integration
Certain data sources have been provided for data retrieval for cases created in RM. Currently there are no such objects available for pulling out data for records.
- Data source 0CSM_CASE_ATTR OR function module UDM_BW_GET_CASE_DATA:
Data source 0CSM_CASE_ATTR makes use of function module UDM_BW_GET_CASE_DATA to retrieve attributes of cases.

Integration Scenarios currently in use
The extractors are used in Financial Supply Chain management (FSCM) area in Dispute Management, Credit Management, Collection Management etc. They are also used in CRM in IC for incident handling. These applications create & process cases for disputes, customer complaints etc.
What do you need to do to integrate if you need to integrate for a new scenario
Usage of these extractors is relevant if your application makes use of Case Management in NW Folder Management applicationor you are working with NW Folder Management directly. For making use of the extractors, expertise in BW is necessary. You would need to create your own datasources to extract data using these extractors & subsequently use in the reports designed by you.
Functionalities not supported
Extractors are available for extracting case data only. There are no extractors for records or documents(or any other service provider)
