This is just a short post as I stumbled over this in the past:

Problem

You want to define an action for a business partner object (Customer, Contact Person, Employee) but this is not possible because they are not ESF2 nodes – and only those support adding actions.

Solution

SAP provides the largely undocumented business object¬†BusinessPartnerSolutionExtensions, which is ESF2. This business object is in sync with the default BusinessPartner business object – so for every UUID in BusinessPartner there’s an identical UUID in BusinessPartnerSolutionExtensions.

So just create your action in BusinessPartnerSolutionExtensions and you will be able to link to the default BusinessParter using the UUID.

Note

This was tested using C4C release 1708.

    Is it possible to get a web Service from this BO containing my own fields/nodes?

    When I try to create a PES, the system tells me “No scenarios found” – no matter which node I select.

    Thanks, Achim

    Hello,

    I have a requirement to add a custom action and call in the Contact_SOWL, but how is it possible to call that action in the BusinessPartnerSolutionExtensions to call from a Contact_SOWL.

     

    Please share more insights…

    Thanks

    Gayathri
