Our controllers want to be in charge of the data slices, but we do not want them inside our system. I created now 4 different data slices and I have now two questions:
- Is there a way to activate data slices via a webtemplate or a query?
- Can those data slices be changed via webtemlpate or query, e.g. only lock certain countries or years (maybe with a dropdown box or checkboxes).
Thanks in advance
Unfortunately there is no standard functionality to do what you require. I've had a similar issue to your second requirement and used a user exit variable in the data slice to look up a custom table which held a list of the characteristic values which were blocked for posting to. If you could give your users access to a screen to maintain a list then this approach may work - if using the web would be worth considering VC to do this.
As for your first, there will be a function module (or method) which you could use to activate / deactivate the data slices.
