Generic Object Services (GOS) Toolbar Part 3 : Add toolbar in Custom Program

Shows the code for how to add Generic Object service Toolbar in the Z program

You can find all of these discussions at Tutorials > Generic Object Services (GOS).

Today, we will see how to get the GOS toolbar in the custom Report.

GOS toolbar works on the Business Object. To be able get GOS toolbar, we need to have a Business Object and Business Object Key. For example, to get the GOS toolbar for the customer, we need Business object KNA1 and customer number as the key. So, if we want to have a GOS toolbar in our custom transaction than we need to have a key before generating that. This is the reason; we don’t have the GOS toolbar option in the standard SAP Create transactions like: XD01, VA01, MM01 and so on.

This test program will provide us the GOS toolbar for the Customer in our custom program (Z program). This will provide us all the functionality of the GOS toolbar which are available in the XD02, XD03 transaction.

Code Snippet to Add GOS toolbar to Custom program

*& Report  ZTEST_NP_GOS
*& To Generate GOS toolbar in the Custom Transaction

    For which business object, you are trying to get a GOS toolbar?

    We have Z object. It is a table. I don’t see that object in “Swo1″ but there is table with that z name. This is part of production support.

  • You must need a business object created in the SWO1 to be able to store the documents.

    If you see closely the above example, it uses the standard business object for the customer. Same way, you need to have the business object for your requirement.

    Hello Naimesh.

    I am working on ECC 6 and have a problem with VA03 txn. GOS toolbar doesn't appear and when I am trying to get it through the menu there is message 'No services available'.
    In the meanwhile everything works correctly with ME23N for example.
    I see that you are good expert in this topic, may be you could help?

    Thank you in advance, Marina.

    Our 'create attachment' icon is greyed out in fbd3. It works fine for everything else. Any suggestions?

    Hi There Naimesh

    We would like to grey out the create attachement option, as it stores to the SAP Db and we do not want the users to use that. We have already setup the 'store business document' that we want the users to use.

    How can we grey 'create attachment' out?

    Thanks alot!

  • Hi Naimesh,

    Nice blog and appreciate your efforts in explaining from every corner. My requirement is to attach the GOS toolbar and its functions to a custom WD screen. Is there any SAP delivered component throuh which we could achive it? Instead of accessing through the CL_GOS* classes. please shootout any other thoughts if you see..

  • I want to restrict user to delete attachment file.

  • Naimesh Patel

    Hello Ankit,

    SAP has a authority object S_GOS_ATT. You can use this to control the User’s authorization. Check this SAP Knowledge Base Article Authorization concept while modify/delete attachments from Attachment list of Services for Object (GOS) for more information.

    This object check is available as part of different Support Pack based on your system version. Check OSS Note: 1293080 for more info.
