Hi All,

I am trying to create a CR type for a particular end market (My Project Specific). I have an implementation guide for the same (Steps).

My query over here is that what will be expected out put of each step and what would be the dependancies of each step. Like if we perform one step what is the dependency of that step

on the next step.

This is because before I start the procedure I would like to know the expected output of each

step performed. So that I can procced accordingly without much errors and confusion. I would

like to know where I might be facing any authorization issues.

I am providing the steps which are provided to me to create a CR type. So kindly help me out

for the same.

Only last step has the dependancies with the previous ones, as you need assign the created status profiles, action profiles and so on to the transaction profile. All the other steps are independant.

There's a little reminder, from my project experience, when you copy the action profile to a new one, you need to check the parameter assigned to the method in processing type one by one if it's filled as the original ones. And furthermore, you need maintain the conditions of the actions manually. It's not copied.
