Please, I have a doubt in travel business functions activation.
FIN_TRAVEL_1 and FIN_TRAVEL_2 are not activated.
But in R/3, WDs Abap for Travel Management seem to work ok.
iViews in portal are also ok (they call WDs Abap).
I don't know if I need to activate FIN_TRAVEL_1 and FIN_TRAVEL_2 business functions. It seems WDs Abap for Travel Management are ok.
What will happen if I activate them? Do I need to do it so as to obtain more benefits?
The system information:
SAP ECC 6.0
SAP_ABA 701 SAPKA70110
SAP_BASIS 701 SAPKB70110
EA-HR 604 0040 SAPK-60440INEAHR
ESS. ERP 2005 EhP2
The sap help explains all dependencies and benefits for this Busieness function:
In my opinion you should definitely activate FIN_TRAVEL_2 since you are on EHP 4.
Additional functionality is delivered with FIN_TRAVEL_2 (in POWL etc) and you will often find that many resources in homepage framework rely on the WD ABAP functionality with FIN_TRAVEL_1 and FIN_TRAVEL_2 so I would be very surprised if the iviews are working without these activated as they are indeed essential!
That said, remember that this is not reversible and for example FIN_TRAVEL_2 will replace the switch personnel function that you may have previously seen and for other functionality such as optical archive and attachments etc in portal there is a mimimum requirement of FIN_TRAVEL_1.
You need to make sure your business package component for portal (e.g 1.41) is in sync with requirements for 604 too.
