Questions on BPS BAPI calls and PDF forms

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
I will need to create a button on a BPS form and that button is supposed to call a BAPI.  One of the buttons will create a PDF of the form (using the contents of the form) and print said form to a 'default' printer.  The issue is that not all cFolder users will have an ECC logon name.  What am I to do in this instance?  Will I need to pass some type of credentials to the ECC backend in order to run this BAPI?
Also, how can I get the contents of the form(s) to the BAPI?  I assume that I will need to create the PDF in the code of the BAPI.  Please be patient with me as this is my first time to work with cFolders and/or BPS.

Davis

The Best Answer

Hi Davis,
Well, if you are able to log on the BPS application (thus, a Web Interface if I'm not mistaken) then it means that some user is logged on the ABAP-side. It is either a "personal" user or a technical (common) user, that is used for anonymous access.
You will certainly be able to track down this user with the SM04 transaction.
You should be able to add a button to the BPS page. One idea would be to call an URL with an ICF service behind that will be able to process the parameters contained in this URL.
It will be this very ICF service that will call the BAPI.

Hope this helps.
