Converting the Object Key

Use

Generally, the same object is managed in different systems under different keys. For example, a measuring point with the number 4711 in the R/3 System corresponds to the data address P-1001 in the process control system.

The conversion of the object key of the external system into the R/3 key is generally performed using an assignment table. This table can either be located in the external system or in the R/3 System.

In the case of the PM objects "Functional location" and "Measuring point", the object key of the external system can be stored on the part of R/3 as a standard attribute (secondary index) of the R/3 object. This means that when the corresponding RFCs are called up, the SAP primary key does not have to be transferred.
