I set the user parameter as X in SU3 and remove the object from service order and add it once again, it will stop everywhere the method CL_COM_IOITF_DEBUG~BREAKPOINT is called. So we can debug to investigate the handling logic of IOITF framework.


In order to find the root cause for my dedicated issue, I create a dynamic breakpoint on ABAP keyword MESSAGE, since I assume there must be some error message raised which blocks the event creation.


After I click F8 the debugger stops at the code where one error message is raised:


Go upper callstack and I know the framework complains the necessary settype COM_COMMERCIAL is not assigned to object category.


After I add this set type to object category,


After that once I add the object to service order, I could see the expected record in object Event History assignment block.
