Configure Merge Actions for Business Object Actions

Business Object Actions are categorized by areas (Menu, Task Pane, toolbar, Context Menu, and Automatic Actions). When you use the Add Business Object to mApp Wizard to define merge actions for a Business Object and its associated Actions, you are specifying merge actions for entire areas and all Actions within those areas. However, you can use the Business Object Actions window to override these selections. You can also define separate merge actions for individual Actions within a Business Object's Menu, Task Pane, toolbar, and Context Menu.

To configure merge actions for Business Object Actions:

  1. Add a Business Object to a mApp using the Add Business Object to mApp Wizard.
  2. In the Object Manager within the mApp Editor, click the Business Object from the Object tree, and then click the Edit Actions task in the Structure area.
  3. Click a page (ex: Task Pane) to view the Actions for that specific area.

      • Clear overwrite option for all Actions: Select this option to set all Actions within an area to Do Not Overwrite.

    2. Select a merge action in the drop-down:

      Note: You can only select separate merge actions for Menu, Task Pane, toolbar, Context Menu, and Automatic Actions. Print Actions are handled as a single merge area of a Business Object.

      • Do Not Overwrite Action: Select this option to leave the existing Action definition in the target system unchanged (the mApp definition is not imported into the target system when the mApp is applied).
      • Overwrite Action: Select this option to have the mApp definition overwrite the existing definition in the target system.
      • Conditions: Select this option to open the mApp Conditions window and define conditions for overwriting/adding the Action definition when the mApp is applied.
  6. Click OK.

  7. Prepare the mApp for Distribution (File>Prepare mApp for distribution), or save the mApp (File>Save mApp to Disk) to continue making other changes.
