2905703 - How to Work with Extension Scenarios


In Business ByDesign, Administrators are able to create Extension Fields, either at Header or Item level. They can then add these fields to screens or templates in order to adapt the system to their needs.

 Another facet of these fields is that via Extension Scenarios, you are able to create an extension field in one business context and then add that extension field to multiple other business contexts. The data stored in the extension field is then passed from one business context to the next as part of a business process.


 SAP Business ByDesign.


There is no previous configuration or scoping needed in order to work with Extension Scenarios, all you need to do is follow these steps:
