Avoid storage of Attachments in SAP Office tables (SOOD, SOFM, SOC3, SOFFCONT1) & Store it on OpenText Archive Server
Many times storing Attachments, notes.etc.etc can consume SAP office database table space which needs to be cleaned up very often.
To avoid storage of GOS menu items store the SAP office tables and store them in OpenText Archive server we can use SGOSATTR table to configure custom class with custom code to store attachment items to OpenText Content Server.
This blog provides the idea how it can be achieved. Currently, it is tried with “Create Attachment” GOS menu item similarly it can be extended to other GOS menu items too.
By default “Create Attachment” GOS menu item uses below highlighted class.
This particular class is copied to Z class to replace the code in the method “EXECUTE”
Custom code is filled to achieve the storage of the attached files into OpenText Content Repository
Archive id generated after running of this code and successful Archiving into OpenText Content Repository can be seen in the below screen shot
Check on the OpenText Server shows the document is stored as I did not code the storage of doc/arch id in TOA1.
But to run this successfully document type with BO SOFM is used.
Below video link show how it is achieved.
Please feel free to ask any queries.
