We might have an idea about version management in SAP BW but can you find complete history about changes made to particular object like how many time Info Object get modified /changed.
Scenario: Customer wants information about change to the Info Object (0Product), till SAP BW7.0 we can find only last changed information for the same.
Here is the Solution: Below Steps would help you to create historical version automatically in SAP BW 7.3.
Go to SPRO –>SAP ReferenceIMG –>SAP Net Weaver –>Business Warehouse –>General Settings –> Create Historical TLOGO Versions Automatically.
Click on New Entries and maintain Object type (CUBE/DSO/Info Object etc…) from TLOGO object like below screen
Enter the object type as IOBJ for Info Object,Check the below screen
Then goto RSA1 and select object maintenance screen then click on version management from Goto menu
We can observe the below screen that Active and Modified versions are temporary origin,
hence it would not store in Database table
Also we can find the History of version (object change version )with date and time,
We can observe that Version is would increase for each change.
You can do comparison between different versions and can export in to the file (Example : XML)
We can implement the same process for other Objects like DSO, Info Cube.
