TDMS HCM: Add customer tables for transfer
There might be some tables a customer would create with key fields as PERNR or OBJID. If these tables are added in the transfer, the data can be scrambled in these tables as well according to the rules or target range chosen and consistency can be maintained in the ‘Z’ or ‘Y’ tables added as well.
Steps to add customer tables for transfer
Open the process tree for the package
Execute the activity ‘Configuration and Utilities in the Sender System’, this shall open the new SAP GUI window with below shown activities
Execute activity ‘Define Table Transfer Groups’, this will open the maintenance view as shown below
If you do not have authorizations for maintenance view in sender system, then maintain the data in your development system in maintenance view ‘V_CNVHCM_CPARAMS’ for this activity and transport to sender system.
Click on button ‘New Entries’
Add a new Table grouping for all your custom tables as shown above
Now click on save button
This will open a popup as shown above, Add to an existing customizing request or create new if needed.
Now, execute activity ‘Define Tables for table Transfer Groups’.
If you do not have authorizations for maintenance view in sender system, then maintain the data in your development system in maintenance view ‘V_CNVHCM_CPARDEF’ for this activity and transport to sender system.
Click on button ‘New entries’
Add new entries for all the custom tables you want to transfer.
Table Grouping : ZCUST
I/E : Including
Lower value: PTEX2010
Object Typ : P
Field Name: PERNR
Note: When adding more than one custom table, you have to add a new entry by incrementing the sequence number and changing the lower value to corresponding table name. Remaining fields would remain same.
All tables you want to add either should have fields PERNR or OBJID for adding to transfer. Tables without either of these fields cannot be transferred using TDMS HCM.
After adding all the entries, click on save.
Add to transport request as done before.
Now execute activity ‘Set Table Transfer Status’ and this shall open up maintenance view as shown in below screenshot.
If you do not have authorizations for maintenance view in sender system, then maintain the data in your development system in maintenance view ‘V_CNVHCM_TR_TAB’ for this activity and transport to sender system.
Click on Button ‘New entries’
Add Table grouping and table name for all the tables and check the checkbox. Table grouping would remain same but table name differs for all the entries.
After adding all the entries, click on save
Add to transport request as done before
Now execute the activity ‘Identify Objects for Transfer and Start Data deletion’
Click on Other PA Data tab and click on ‘Customer tables’ button
Check the checkbox of the Custom group you have created in the first step.
These steps should add the custom tables for data transfer.
For adding an info type, you just have to customize in activity ‘Set table transfer status’. You need not create a table grouping. You can use the below table groups instead.
Most of the info types are already maintained and you have to maintain only if the entry is missing in standard shipment for the info type you are looking to transfer.
Table grouping is ‘PERNI’ for PA tables and ‘OBJID’ for OM tables.
