i often get the requirement of fast searching for classifications/characteristic values etc, so i checked out what other options
are there beside transaction CL30N
I tried the EAM Webdynpros Search Functionality.
EAM provides several WebDynpros. These are using Embedded Search with TREX (/NESH_COCKPIT), and the same can be archieved with Hana (if your ERP is running on Hana, use /NESH_COCKPIT as well)
First you have to activate the enhancment switch LOG_EAM_SIMPLICITY (see also sap help:
i then assigned the PFCG-Role SAP_COCKPIT_EAMS_MAINT_WORKER to my userid
After starting Netweaver Business Client with /NNWBC, i can see the new Role with the EAM Webdynpros:
i choose the Information Center
it is possible to fast-search for characteristics/classes using TREX or Hana!
especially when searching for text or even generic text starting with *, this is much faster than CL30N
from here i have the asset viewer and show the characteristic values here:
so for some use-cases this might be already a perfect solution
another idea could be to use the embedded search classes and create your own transaction (ZCL30?) or Webdynpro
in order to have a use-case specific characteristic value search instead of the generic infocenter, or even create your own embedded search class
