Create Specific-Customer Application Components.
In Sap Solution Manager create the Specific-Customer Application Components is really easy, you can use the SPRO Activity SOLMAN_SD_APPC_CSPEC.
But the problem is when we want to use Specific-Customer Application Component during the creation of the ticket from Managed enviroments.
In old system, I always use SE81 to create the custom component list, but from 2010, SE81 is not more supported,Note 1467304 – SE81 (Component hierarchy): Maintenance no longer possible
Until SAP don’t release a new functionality to force the managed environment, read the Component Application list from Sap Solution Manager, you can use the following workaround.
- Prepare the system
You need to create a prefix for the new components, to do that, you need to run the Report SBMCV000 in SA38.
Create a new Prefix and execute After the program run , you will see the confirmation in the bottom of the screen.
- Create the Specific-Customer Application Component
Run Transaction SBACH02, The system will be ask if you want to edit in enhancement mode, select “Yes”.
Click in “New” to create a new Enhancement ID.
Write the new Enhancement ID and SAVE.
The system will you ask the Package where you want to save the enhancement, (You can use the “Local Object” option if you don’t want to transport this enhancement).
Now you will se the list of standard Application components coming with SAP,
Select the SAP App and click on “Insert Nodes as Subnodes” Icon.
Click in New, and then “Without Namespace” button.
Now you need to type the Short Text Description, and the Component ID (Remember to use ZZ to identify clearly your company components).
Now you have a new entry in the Application Hierarchy Tree, I recommend to put all the new specific-customer Application components inside this Component.
this will be the Master App Component for your company.
To create new components entries, select ZZ and click on “Insert Nodes as Subnodes” Icon. there you can create a new Customer Components,
Remember to always define the Component ID starting with ZZ* (This will help you during the support Determination definition).
Now you can see the tree with your new ZZ-LG Component.
Now you can test our modification, create a new Support Message from the Help Menu.
Then you need to open the Selection button.
You will se the list of Application Components, including the Specific Customer Components created few minutes ago.
If you select the component, SAP will bring the Code directly to the Create message pop-up.
REMEMBER ALWAYS HAVE THE SAME APPLICATION COMPONENTS LIST IN SOLUTION MANAGER (SPRO Activity SOLMAN_SD_APPC_CSPEC ) AND THE MANAGED SYSTEMS
Thanks Wen for this neatly put blog, It was an interesting read.
Does this method have any advantage over standard IMG activity "Customer Specific Appl Component" ?
Thanks for your comment, the IMG "Customer Specific Appl Component" only apply for Sap Solution Manager, if you want to use custom component in satellite environment you need to follow this procedure..
