Manage Classes and Characteristics


Classification Functions


You start with the basic data screen when processing characteristics. You specify the status, data type and the value assignment type. Next, you define allowed values for a characteristic and determine whether only values from this range can be selected for the characteristic, or whether other values are also permitted.


Managing Characteristics


You must start on the basic data screen when processing classes. You specify the status, the organizational areas, and the authorization group. Next you can assign catchwords to help you in matchcode searches.

The most crucial step is assigning the relevant characteristics, which the user then selects for the object assignment to assign values to the object.


Managing Classes

Assignment and Value Assignment

The classification of objects means the assignment of objects to a class, and the assignment of characteristic values to the objects.

This classification can either occur directly in the object or in relevant transactions in the classification area.


Managing Class Assignments


A classification search can be executed in several places.

You can start the SAP FIORI app to search directly, or call it from the classified object. If you start the F4 help in the object, you can perform a search in many cases.
