Considerations specific to using the connector with HEI

A Virtual Fields activity allows you to intercept four document-related events:
  • Intercept Document Create
  • Intercept Document Open
  • Intercept Document Update
  • Intercept Document Delete

To create one activity that supports all four of the above events, write your own RFC/BAPI function that allows you to do so.

In general, data integrity is fully covered by any ECC transaction. Do not enable any integrity checks in the activity, such as Check External Data for changes option for Update operations. If you do, your Virtual Fields activity will fail for internal technical reasons.

If you cannot write or get access to such an RFC/BAPI function, create four different Virtual Fields activities. In this case, each activity supports only one event. The following sections provide examples of Virtual Fields activity documents that support each type of event.
