In some business cases, the standard customizing settings are not enough. This BAdI allows you to override customizing settings when updating transactions in Grants Management (GM). The parameters that can be changed in this BAdI are:

  • CH_IS_RELEVANT: Responsible for determining who derives the grant and other GM dimensions
    • Return Value "X" indicates that the grant and other GM dimensions should be derived from the rules specified in the Grants Management Assignments.
    • Return Value " " indicates that the GM dimensions will be obtained through the splitting mechanism of the split processor.
  • CH_STATS: Responsible for indicating whether a line is a statistical or a real posting
    • Return Value "R": Real Posting
    • Return Value "S": Statistical Posting



Standard settings


Only use this BAdI when you need one GL account to behave differently depending on a business scenario.


After calling up the IMG activity, a dialog box appears, in which you can enter a name for the implementation.

If you have already made other implementations for this BAdI, another dialog box appears, in which the existing implementations are displayed. In this case, choose Create, and proceed as follows:

  1. In the dialog box, enter a name for the BAdI implementation in the Implementation field, and choose Create.

    The screen for creating BAdI implementations is now displayed.

  2. Enter a short text for the implementation in the Short text for implementation field.
  3. From the tab index, choose Interface.

    The Name of implemented class field is already filled on the tab page, as a class name was automatically assigned to the implementation when you named it.

  4. Save your entries, and assign the implementation to a development class.
  5. Place the cursor on the method, and double-click to enter method processing.
  6. Enter the code for the implementation between the statements method <Interface name> ~ <Name of method> and endmethod.
  7. Save and implement your code. Return to the Edit Implementation screen.
  8. Save the entries on the Edit Implementation screen.

    Note: You can also create an implementation, and then activate it at a later time. In such a case, end the processing stage at this point.

  9. Choose Activate

    The code you stored in the method will be run when the application program is executed.
