Single Display Using SAP AS (BC-SRV-EDI)

Use

You can display all archived IDocs by choosing the archive information system (SAP AS). There are two differences for IDoc search in the archive:

  • The SAP AS displays all IDoc records, that is, the status records as well as the control and data records.
  • You cannot use SAP AS to search for character strings in data records.

Prerequisites

The archive files are available in the system and are not stored using the Content Management Service (CMS).

The archive info structure is active and set up (see "activities")

Features

You use the archive info structure SAP_IDOC_001 in the standard system to search, for example, for

  • Time (creation and last change)
  • Partner
  • Message
  • IDoc number

You can also define your own structures. The field catalog containing the fields is called SAP_IDOC_001. It contains the fields from the IDoc control record EDI_DC, with the exception of client, ALE serialization and record type.

Authorizations

For single display, only the General Archiving Authorization is needed.
