Hi Xexer,

Finally able to resolve this. I used component type instead of data type and it worked. So I guess for on premise this feature is there.

S/4 Hana on premise f4 help

Hi Xexer,

Thanks for your quick reply. We are in s/4 Hana private cloud. Any pointers on how to achieve this would greatly help as this is blocker in using application jobs.

Actual only base types are supported, which you handle in the GET_PARAMETERS implementation. - 05/24/2024 - 08:15

Hi xexer,

Can we add data element while creating parameters? Will this provide default search help? I tried adding data elements, the catalog got activated but while creating job, it is throwing error "invalid datatype u"

Hello Srini,
the exit does not seem to be working at the moment. We asked SAP about this, but have not yet received an answer as to how to implement your own value help. After a short debugging session, it looked as if only old DDIC search helps are supported there, which are not available in ABAP Cloud. - 05/23/2024 - 19:24

I see that you are getting f4 help for country parameter. Can you tell me how did you achieve this? I tried to use value help class but no results. Can you post a blog on using value help class.
