1. requirement to update the VBELN field of the service notification (IW52). Is there any BAPI to do this. I am using th following BAPIs, but the data is not getting updated.




2.did you used BAPI_TRANSACTION_COMMIT after these BAPI's which you have mentioned.

if not try using the same

and see this include


you will get some hints to update

3.There is function module named with BUFFER will be there

it is used to update notifcation

i think you are trying to populate wrong data that is why you are getting this message i guess "order is not a maintenance contract" ,so please check with your functional counterpart as well

can u check that if it works

Using BAPI'S to update the reportedby field was not helpful, even after using commit BAPI the field was not getting populated. I had a doubt that, exit may not get called when creating an order through BAPI (BAPI_ALM_ORDER_MAINTAIN). But the EXIT QQMA0025 is being triggered when creating order through BAPI, where the E_VIQMEL-QMNAM field can be used to populated with the reported by name/id.

Thank you.
