Copy Control for Attachment



Copy control for attachment not working as expected for email.


Business Requirement


Attachments should be copied from transaction type ZMRQ to 0005 (email) only. All other transaction types (ie. ZMCR, ZMIN) should not copy attachments to 0005 (email).


Reproducing the Issue


1. Check the radio button under “Attachment” for ZMRQ to 0005 via IMG node SAP Solution Manager ->  Capabilities (Optional) -> IT Service Management -> Follow-up Document Creation -> Specify Mapping Rules for Copy Control

2. Uncheck the radio button under “Attachment” for ZMCR to 0005

3. Create a Service Request (ZMRQ) which includes an attachment and select More -> Send Email

4. Create a Request for Change (ZMCR) which includes an attachment and select More -> Send Email




As expected, attachments get copied from ZMRQ (Service Request) to 0005 (Email). 

Not as expected, attachments get copied from ZMCR (Change Request) to 0005 (Email). 




The configuration was not effective because Parameter CRM_EMAIL_NO_COPY is checked.


If Parameter CRM_EMAIL_NO_COPY is enabled, then all attachment will NOT be copied to email. If CRM_EMAIL_NO_COPY Parameter is disabled, then all attachment will be copied to email. In other words, you cannot define specifically which transaction get attachment copied.




Parameter CRM_EMAIL_NO_COPY is a function added by implementing Note 1855313. By resetting this note, the specific requirement can be fulfilled.
