How-to guide for checking the change history of TM conditions

Conditions in are used in many TM process steps, e.g. to control the determination of document types or organizational units. Since conditions control such central steps of the TM process, sometimes it is required to analyse a condition if a system does not behave as expected. If the system behaved as expected in the past it can be useful to check the changes history to see which entries in the condition have been added/deleted/changed in the meantime.

Unfortunately, the TM Condition UI does not provide a functionality to check the change history, but the change history can be displayed via BRF+ workbench. This blog post gives step by step instructions how to do this.

  1. Go to transaction BRF+
    • BRF plus workbench opens in a new browser window
  2. Find the condition you want to check
    • Click on “Search”

    • Enter the name of the condition you want to check as “Application Name” and click on “Search”Apply%20search%20criteria
    • The relevant BRF+ objects are displayed in the workbenchBRF+%20objects%20in%20workbench

  2. Open the change history for the function object by clicking “More” and then “Display Object History”Display%20object%20history
  3. In the popup select the period for which you would like to see the change history and click on “Show History”.Select%20period
  1. A list with the changes in the selected period is displayed. The user who did the change is displayed in the list. Note: Usernames had to be anonymized in the screenshot.Condition%20change%20history
