In the Request for Change (ZMCR), I have configured the Approval Procedure to be determined by Multi Level Categorization.  When the ChaRM status is in “To Be Approved”,  it does not make sense to allow the Categorization to be changed since the Approver Procedure might also change.   So, I had the requirement to protect the Categorization fields from changes when the status is “To Be Approved”.     The IMG activity “Adjust UI objects by User Status” does not offer the Categorization fields for selection, so I needed to make the change in an Enhancement.

The following screen shots are from 7.1 SP11.

In ZMCR, put the cursor on the Category field and select F2.  Locate the UI Component name and View.

In tcode BSP_WD_CMPWB, enter the component name and Display…

Navigate to the Attributes in the Context Nodes and locate GET_I_CAT01 for the first Categorization field. If the logic is needed for the other Categorization fields, these changes can also be applied to GET_I_CAT02, GET_I_CAT03, and so on….

Create a new Enhancement in each GET_I_CATxx method as needed.   Here’s my code…

method get_i_cat01.

    Hi.

    Thanks for sharing this article. Very usefull content.

    One question, I did not see this IMG activity on my CRM: “The IMG activity “Adjust UI objects by User Status” does not offer the Categorization fields for selection, so I needed to make the change in an Enhancement.”

    Can you send me the full path to this IMG transaction please?

    Thanks.

      Hi Susana,

      Sorry for the delayed response. I’ve been on vacation.

      On SP13, the IMG path to “Adjust UI Objects by User Status” is SAP Solution Manager -> Capabilities (Optional) -> Change Control Management -> Change Request Mangement Framework -> Adjust UI Objects by User Status.
