Creation of Service Notification No for SO.

Former Member

Hi everyone,

I am working on the User Exit for the first time. Kindly help me out with the following requirement.

When a sales order is saved, create a service notification and link to the sales order header.

To fulfill this requirement we need to use the following:


BAPI to create service Notification is : BAPI_ALM_NOTIF_CREATE

When the service notification is created, the following fields should be populated in the notification as the end result:

1. Sales Organization (VIQMEL-VKORG)

2. Distribution Channel (VIQMEL-VTWEG)

3. Division (VIQMEL-SPART)

4. Sales office (VIQMEL-VKBUR)

5. Sales Group (VIQMEL-VKGRP)

6. Notification short text should contain the sales order number (VIQMEL-QMTXT)

7. Sales Order (VIQMEL-VBELN)

The following fields should be updated in the sales order as the end result:

1. Notification number (VBAK-QMNUM)

I need to check if notification no. needs to be created or not. Also, the notification type should be valid. If not I need to throw a warning mess. but SO no. should be saved. if the condition is satisfied then BAPI should be called and notification no. should be created.

In case if BAPI fails then handling should be done with the help of the transaction SLG1.

Please provide me technical help.

Hi Ayushi,

In the Include MV45AFZZ you need to write you code.

First check for whcih service notification. I mean Notification Type.

Then use you BAPI if it is correct for the notification type.



notif_type = p_header-tables-mnmisc-notif_type

notifheader = p_header-tables-mnhead

task_determination = p_header-tables-task_determination

orderid = p_header-tables-mnmisc-orderid


notifheader_export = l_head


notitem = l_it_item " Since you dont have any items to create leave it blank.

notifcaus = l_it_caus " Since you dont have any causes to create leave it blank.

notifactv = l_it_act " Since you dont have any activities to create leave it blank.

notiftask = l_it_task " Since you dont have any tasks to create leave it blank.

notifpartnr = l_it_part "etc ditto

longtexts = l_it_text

return = l_it_return.

read table it_return index 1 / read table it_return TYPE = 'S'

if sy-subrc = 0.

lv_notNumber = MESSAGE_V1 / MESSAGE_V2 .

message 'Notification created' with lv_notnumber type 'S'.


The above logic is a Psuedo or a hint only. Hope this helps.

Thanks & regards,


Finally in the user exit give the message
