How to add a new Attribute and Set Type and make it visible on CRM_UI - Part II

Print Friendly

We have seen how to create an attribute and a set type in my previous post.  Also, we know what to check and what we need to pay attention to while creating those.

The next steps will take you through the process of getting the attribute on UI.

3. You need to assign the set type to the product category. Go to COMM_HIERARCHY, choose the relevant hierarchy, and navigate to the product category you need to assign your set type to. Choose EDIT option and press the Add button.


4. You have to create UI configuration for this Set Type. Go to CRMM_UIU_PROD_CONFIG


5. Go to CRMM_UIU_PROD_GEN to generate the View for the Set Type.


6. Make the set type/assignment block visible in Overview page. Go to BSP_WD_CMPWB and press DISPLAY

BSP_WD_CMPWB - UI Component Workbench

Navigate to the relevant view and then to the tab Configuration.


Here you need to choose the configuration you make the assignment bloc (set type) visible for. A configuration depends on Config Key, Component Usage , Object Type and Object Subtype. Config Key refers to the Configuration Role key and depending on this you can make the assignment block visible or not for the chosen business roles.

All you have left is to move the AB (assignment block) from the Available Assignment Blocks area to Displayed Assignment Block area.
