Configuration on network gets locked

Postby sapexplorer6 » Thu May 17, 2012 2:36 pm

Hi SAP Gurus,

My client has a specific make-to-order scenario wherein the requirement is to
1. Configure the network when it is created from the sales order.
2. Certain Characterisitics value are known after certain tasks(ie. activities) are released and confirmed on the network.

First requirement is working fine using the standard VC functionality. But once one of the activity on the network is released and the network header status is set to "PREL : Partially Released", then the system locks the Configuration on the newtork. On Clicking Extras-> Characteristic Value Assignment, the system displays the message "Network Status Does not allow you to change the configuration"...

I tried using the User Status to influence the network status and certain bussiness transactions. But as soon as the system status "PREL", the VC is locked.
Any suggestions on how to resolve this

Thanks in advance

i am not sure but you can use folowing of the process:
1). Define change profile in the customizing section of the networks and assign this profile to the respective network type.

2). In addition you can use standard workflows in the variant config.

try them if it works let me know.

Thank You for the suggestions.

1. I have heard about the status profile but not regarding the Change Profile. Will research on that one and update .

2. Standard Workflow in Variant Configuration - Not clear what does that mean. Appreicate if you can elaborate a little more on this one.

Thank You for suggesting the "Change Profile". I created a new change profile and assigned it to the network type. And it allows to change the configuration after releasing and confirming activities...

Really Appreciate your response !!
