Hello Colleagues,

During MDG Supplier implementation, I received a unique requirement from one of my client.

Business Requirement 


When requester submits a Change Request with some Bank or HR related sensitive attachments. Then the Bank related approvers should not view the HR attachments. Similarly, the HR related approvers should not view the Bank attachments.

Well, this is quite logical and interesting requirement from Client. Below is implementation process I followed to achieve this unique requirement.

Thinking on the Solution and Obstacles:



  • If we enhance the CR page, then it will be visible to all Masters in MDG. But this requirement is applicable only to MDG Supplier.

  • Adding custom attribute to Form UIBB of Attachment Popup as well as taking back that value to List UIBB of Attachments.

  • Saving and reading this custom attribute value during CR processing as it was not saved in SAP standard tables.


Implementation Process:


Let's divide this requirement in to 4 steps.

  1. GeniL Structure Update

  2. Create Customizing and Custom Feeder class for Add File Popup Screen (Form UIBB)

  3. Create Customizing and Custom Feeder class for List of attachments (List UIBB)

  4. Custom Table to store the custom attribute values.


1. Update Genil Structure for Attachment:


If we want to enhance CR attachments to add new attribute, we have to extend Genil component "CR".

So, I planned to add custom attribute "Attach Type" in the Popup which will differentiate the type of attachment.


GeniL Model for CR


So, we need to append Genil Structure for Attachment BSS_CRIL_ATTACHMENT_ATTRIBUTES to have a custom attribute.




Append attribute to BSS_CRIL_ATTACHMENT_ATTRIBUTES


 

2. Now let's create customizing to FORM UIBB for Attachment (Add File Popup)


First let's create a customizing to USMD_CR_ATT_FILE WD component and attach custom feeder class to add this custom attribute. This is a form UIBB, and its feeder class is CL_USMD_CR_ATT_FILE_BOL_FEEDER. Since this feeder class is final, we cannot provide this class as super class to our custom feeder class.


CL_USMD_CR_ATT_FILE_BOL_FEEDER



CL_USMD_CR_ATT_FILE_BOL_FEEDER -- Implemented Methods


How to solve this technical block?

What I have done is, created a custom feeder class ZCL_***_CR_ATT_FILE_FEEDER and assign the super class as CL_GUIBB_BOL_FORM which is a super class for CL_USMD_CR_ATT_FILE_BOL_FEEDER.


Custom Feeder class for Attachment Popup


And Reimplemented all the methods as shown below.


Custom Feeder Class with Standard Reimplemented Methods


GET_DATA & GET_DEFINITION methods are redefined to have the custom field (attachment type value, visibility and other options only applicable to MDG-Supplier)

Reimplemented PROCESS_EVENT to through an error message when this field is not field from MDG-Supplier

So far, we have completed the design for Add File Popup screen. Let's test the functionality in MDG!


Add File Popup with Custom Attribute



Dropdown values


 

3. Create customizing to LIST UIBB for Attachments:

Now let's start our next phase of development which is to enhance the Attachments list UIBB to hold/save the "Attach Type" provide from the Add File Popup screen.

So let's create a customizing to USMD_CR_ATTACHMENTS WD component and attach custom feeder class to add the same custom attribute which we created in GeniL. This is a list UIBB and its feeder class is CL_USMD_CR_GUIBB_ATTACHMENTS. Since this feeder class is not final, we can provide this class as super class to our custom feeder class.


CL_USMD_CR_GUIBB_ATTACHMENTS



Custom Feeder Class for Attachments List UIBB


In this custom feeder class, I have redefined GET_DATA and PROCESS_EVENT methods. Also, created additional methods for Hiding/Disable and checking authorization of the user.


The three custom methods have been called in IF_FPM_GUIBB_LIST~GET_DATA method to check user authorization (at approver level) and to hide/disable the attachments.

4. Now we are at the final stage of this development.


So before proceeding, let's test the development at the Requester step.

We can see the new custom attribute which was added to GeniL and Feeder class is appearing in the attachments List UIBB.


Let's add some attachments and check whether the data getting passed from Popup to List UIBB of attachments.




Ok Data is getting passed and visible in the List UIBB of attachments. So far development is Woking fine as expected.

Now the next task is, once the CR is submitted this custom attribute value also needs to be saved. So that we can retrieve the same for the further CR steps.

For this I have created a custom table Z* as shown below. In this table I have taken Change Request and Timestamp as a key to store the custom attribute value.


The reason behind to create this custom table was to avoid modification/append to SAP standard tables USMD1211 & USMD1212 for attachments.

But here the next technical challenge was, how can I save and read this custom attribute value back to CR during processing.

For this I have created a post exit to the Handler Class for CR Attachment CL_USMD_CR_GIL_ATTACHMENT


 

But why post exit, why not GeniL enhancement?

Because the standard class CL_USMD_CR_GIL_ATTACHMENT is final, we cannot provide this class as super class to our custom handler class. So created post exit for these methods to overcome this technical block.



In this post exit I have just updated my Z table for attachments and read Z table while displaying. Again, it will be applicable only to MDG Supplier Master.

Now the Development is Completed! Let's test the development 😊


Let's open the change request, which is having both HR and Bank related attachments.

I logged in with user who don't have authorization to view HR related attachments.


We can see the warning message related to HR related attachments and this particular user cannot perform any action (which means download/view) on HR attachments.

 

Now I logged in with user who don't have authorization to view Bank related attachments.


 

Additional Content:


As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, this development should be applicate only to MDG-Supplier.

So, in my coding I always restricted this custom logic using utility class which will check whether the Change Request has been initiated from MDG Supplier.

Here is the Code Snippet for the same.
DATA : GV_APP   TYPE CHAR1,
lv_value TYPE string,
lv_key TYPE string.

*Using Application Parameter
DATA(lr_fpm) = cl_fpm=>get_instance( ).

IF lr_fpm IS NOT INITIAL.

CALL METHOD lr_fpm->mo_app_parameter->get_value
EXPORTING
iv_key = 'OTC'
IMPORTING
ev_value = lv_value.

IF lv_value IS NOT INITIAL.
IF lv_value EQ '266'. "266- MDG-S BO Type
me->gv_app = 'S'.
ELSEIF lv_value EQ '159' "159- MDG-C BO Type
me->gv_app = 'C'.
ENDIF.
ENDIF.

ENDIF.


 

Conclusion: 


Thank you for reading my blog.

In this blog post I tried to cover all the development tasks. So, I hope this might be helpful for some one's similar scenario.

Please drop your comments, valuable suggestions and if any help is required. I would be happy to assist. 😊

Thank you.

Best Regards
