Batch Characteristics FM "Not Released" !

Peace be Upon You All,

We have been using a function module to get the batch characteristics that are stored in MSC2N.

The function is VB_BATCH_VALUES_FOR_OUTPUT . using Batch number, Material, and Plant.

However, lately we found that in many cases,

some characteristics come from the FM with values different from those in MSC2N - on same batch and material !

and others come empty, while in MSC2N they have values !

We are using SAP HANA .

Accordingly, we sent SAP support a ticket complaining about this incident, and they said exactly:

Function VB_BATCH_VALUES_FOR_OUTPUT is not release so it's not supported

this FM is Not Released .. so it's not supported !!

so, why is it there on the system ? and why isn't it Described as "Obsolete Do Not Use" ?

Anyway, is there any FM to get the Batch Characteristics other than this FM ?!

an FM that is Released ..

please advise

You can use function CLAF_CLASSIFICATION_OF_OBJECTS.

To check the input parameters, see the call inside function SD_BATCH_CLASSIFICATION_DATA.

About functions not supported, in SAP Netweaver  you can see all the source code, but some functions are made only for SAP internal use or only make sense in a specific context, so they may not work as expected in your scenario.
