Enable Record Ids Tooltip in Data Manager

During the development of a SAP Netweaver MDM Application you often need the record ID in order to do some debugging or something else.To retrieve the record ID for a normal table you creat a webservice with a retrieve operation, use the webservice navigator to execute this webservice and in the end you get the record ID. A pretty long way for such a simple piece of information. But especially for the PDF table or other internal tables there was no way to retrieve this via a webservice.

There is also a more convenient way of retrieving this information: You can use the Data Manager!!

Just a simple adaption in your registry enables a tooltip in the data manager:

  1. Go to windows registry (regedit)
  2. HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> SAP -> MDM  7.1 -> Client (select Client)
  3. Add new ‘String Value’: ‘Show RecordId In Tooltip’ with the value ‘True’.


If you restart the Data Manager you will see the record ID of each record as a tooltip over the first column normally indicating if a record is protected or not:
