Copy Control for Attachment

Symptom

 

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

 

Result

 

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). 

 

Cause

 

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.

 

Solution

 

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