To modify an existing function definition, you required a working copy of the function definition. The working copy can be created from the active function definition. The data of an existing working copy are overwritten with the data from the active function definition, after prompting.
To create a working copy
To transfer SAP functions from a development environment to a production environment, for example, you can export function definitions to CSV files. These CSV files can be imported into other databases.
To export the function definition to a CSV file
The following properties are exported:
|Property||Data field in the CSV file.|
|Name of the function definition||Function|
|Assigned function category||Process|
|Description of authorization field.||Field Description|
|Value/lower scope boundary||Value From|
|Upper scope boundary||Value To|
The import status (State) is included with each data record in the CSV file as additional information. The import status is set to "1" by default on export. This data is evaluated when function definitions are imported.
One and the same function definition can be used for different concrete instances. A specific SAP client that the SAP function will be used in, is given in the function instance. In addition, the variables that are assigned to the authorization fields are given specific values. Function instances can only be created for SAP functions that are enabled.
To edit function instances

|Client||SAP client to which the SAP function should be applied.|
|Variable setUsed to configure synchronization configuration for different systems. Each variable set contains at least the variables for the system connection parameter. The value of the variables are redefined for different uses.||Variable set with functions defined, which are used in the function definition. The variable set and the function instance must be assigned to the same SAP client.|
|Managers||Application role whose members are responsible for the function instance and variable sets in terms of content.
