Custom objects in screenconfiguration


we are looking into the possibility to use custom objects to create some new logic.
In our use case we want to link a main serial number which consists of several sub serial numbers to each other.
In our SAP B1 system, we create a new UDT, with a udt handler and we have our link.

I tried to perform the same here, and created a custom object.
Now i want to create the same screen as in my ERP, but i cant find any option for that in screenconfiguration.
I then tried to link my custom object to my serial numbers, but couldnt select the custom object in the screenconfig, altough i have selected the object type "serial number" in my object.

Kind regards

    Dear Frederik,

    Thank you for your interest in our product and for your valuable feedback.
    Currently adding a custom object field to a custom screen or an existing screen is not possible.

    Due to your feedback and our focus on development experience I validated your idea and added it to the idea backlog of the DX platform. Currently implementing this is not planned yet, but it is considered as a valid feedback which brings an additional value to our product.

    We will keep your request in mind when we continue working on the screen configurator.

    Thank you.

    Best Regards,
    Nicolas Sax

  • Hi Nicolas,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    please note that in the help file for the custom object following is listed:

    "This custom object could then be leveraged in a screen configuration, used in a report, or in a business rule action."

    Kind regards


  • Hi Frederik,

    Thank you for the hint. We changed the documentation to match the current state of the implementation.

    Kind regards
