Lean Request Apps in MDG

 The SAP Fiori lean request Apps for Master Data Governance are targeted towards a business user who does not have much expertise in master data handling, but would like to create a new organization for areas such as customer and supplier. With limited information, they can easily send a request to the master data expert using the SAP Fiori application. The following SAP Fiori applications are delivered out-of-the-box for the MDG lean request scenario:

  1. Request Customer
  2. Request Supplier
  3. Request Business Partner
  4. Request Material
  5. Request Cost Center
  6. Request Profit Center
  7. Track My Requests

  Key Features

  •  Lean requestor form for a user new to MDG
  • Separate forms to create a customer as an organization and a person
  • Automatically generated list of potential duplicates
  • You can customize the Duplicates button to display the + sign when a certain number of duplicates are found (for example, 20+).
  • Option to upload attachments containing request details
  • When you upload an attachment, the Reason for Request field is automatically filled with the text Check attached documents.
  • Track My request UI to track the request status
  • Address format that automatically changes to EU or US when you enter the country

 

Request Customer

Request Supplier

Request Material

 

Request Business Partner

Request Cost Center

Request Profit Center

Track My Requests

 Key Features

  • Use a lean UI for tracking the requests created by the user
  • View the number of requests over a set time period. You can customize the time period of the number of requests displayed, for example, 15 requests in last 30 days; 6 requests in last 7 days.
  • See requests broken into 3 categories In process, Approved, and Rejected.
  • Take the option to filter requests by master data type, for example, all customer requests
  • Personalize your view, for example, add or remove columns

Approval Apps in MDG

Approve Master Data

 Key Features

  • Approve or reject MDG Master Data
  • Display only the changed data to approver for approval of master data
  • Navigate to details of changed data when requested by approver
  • Display only fields which have data entered by the requestor
  • Display only relevant data based on authorization. For example, if a user is authorized to see data for a specific company code, they would not see data for other company codes.
  • Display all requests of step type 2 (Approve) to approver in the inbox by default. You can extend the app to include requests in other steps, that need only approval without editing data, by extending the back end classes.

MDG – Consolidation

Key Features

  • Consolidation for SAP business partner, customer, supplier, material master, and custom objects
  • Process UI to start and monitor consolidation processes for all tables and fields including edit capabilities
  • Integration of standardization capabilities, including BRFplus integration
  • Matching capabilities to identify duplicates
  • Match review UI to approve or reject matching results
  • Configurable best-record calculation
  • Best record calculation UI to check and amend the result data
  • Analytics for each process step including drill-down capabilities

  • Flexible governance and collaboration for post-processing through optional integration with change request process
  • Support of multiple assignments for business partner
  • Manual deletions in Best Record Calculation
  • Allow re-validation when changing data Process analytics

MDG – Mass Processing

 Key Features

  • Administrators can prepare templates called configurations for frequently executed change scenarios. These configurations enable users to perform their tasks without the need to understand field and table structures in detail.
  • You can use the file upload feature to upload changes to business objects in .XLSX and .CSV format (using a semi-colon as a delimiter).
  • The system executes processing in the background, enabling users to close the application and check the status later. You can also save a Mass Processing run and come back to work on it later.

    • Hello Andreas,

      is the access of the fully featured MDG Webdynpros (request, approval, inbox, myCRs, etc..) from FIORI tiles already officially supported by SAP ? Or is it still required to use NWBC to launch the MDG Webdynpros even with the new MDG on S/4 HANA releases such as 1909 ? If yes, is there a corresponding how to configuration guide available ? Would the configuration be similar as for the Lean MDG FIORI Apps which seems to be explained under the following link ? https://help.sap.com/viewer/4e12a4b577444a7dbdd33016683c50a8/2.0%202017-05/de-DE/9ae63d531c0d0350e10000000a44176d.html

      Which roles would need to be used in that case ?

      We would like to have and use FIORI tiles for at least the following full MDG Webdynpro applications:

      1.MDG FIORI Tile 1 “Search & process Business Partner”

      Text EN: Search & process Business Partner

      WD Application: BS_OVP_BP

      WD Appl. config: BS_OVP_BP_ALL

      2.MDG FIORI Tile 2 “My Change Requests”

      Text EN: My Change Requests

      WD Application: USMD_EDITION_CREQUEST

      WD Appl. config: USMD_EDITION_CREQUEST

      Parameter SYUNAME = X

      3. MDG FIORI Tile 3 “My workflow inbox”

      Text EN: My workflow inbox

      WD Application: IBO_WDA_INBOX

      WD Appl. config: USMD_CREQUEST_POWL

      4. MDG FIORI Tile 4 “Search open Change Requests”

      Text EN: Search open Change Requests

      WD Application: USMD_EDITION_CREQUEST

      WD Appl. config: USMD_EDITION_CREQUEST

      Regards,

      Michael

      • Hi Michael,

        the official state is as given in the SAP Fiori Apps Reference Library

        https://help.sap.com/fiori -> SAP Fiori Apps Reference Library (https://fioriappslibrary.hana.ondemand.com/sap/fix/externalViewer/ )

         

        For example, you will find there:

        Manage Business Partner – Governance
        for Master Data Specialist – Business Partner Data

        including all information required for implementation and use, which includes Fiori catalog or business role.

        Best regards

        Andreas

        • Hello Andreas,

          thank you very much for your fast reply. I was not referring to the Lean MDG Fiori requester and approval Apps nor the MDG consolidation Apps which seem to be discussed in this blog but to the fully featured MDG Webdynpros for MDG-BP, MDG-C and MDG-S but I believe you understood and pointed me to the right corresponding SAP Fiori Apps in the SAP Fiori Apps Reference Library area.

          I have additional questions:

          1. Will I still be able to create MDG UI configurations/customizing in Floorplan Manager with those FIORI Apps or are they based on a completely different technology and I need to use the corresponding FIORI Apps extensibility documentation ? I need to hide some UIBBs and fields. I also need to add some custom fields to certain UIBBs in the MDG-UI. Is the a specific MDG How-To guide available for MDG specific FIORI Apps extensions ?
          2. I also need to possibly use context based adaptation in the MDG-UI where the requester will have a slightly different UI as the approver. Will I be able to use context based adaptation with the FIORI Apps which you pointed me to ?

          Regards,

          Michael

          • Hi Michael,

            have you read what is written in the SAP Fiori Apps Reference Library? In particular the BS_OVP_BP app mentioned? These are the Web Dynpro based applications you are asking for. Please disregard the “Fiori” in the SAP Fiori Apps Reference Library – the library includes also these Web Dynpro applications that are made accessible via the Fiori launchpad. … and for which you are asking for 🙂

            Best regards

            Andreas

          • Hello Andreas,

            thanks for pointing me to the BS_OVP_BP App. I found it performing a search in “All Apps” within the SAP FIORI Apps Reference Library. Indeed the title SAP “FIORI” Apps Reference Library first confused me and I did not even consider searching for the MDG Webdynpro Application names.

            If I have any further questions I will come back to you.

            Have a good weekend for now.

            Regards,

            Michael
