Object ID

Hello Gurus,

When creating a Position or Organization Unit in OM, there is a field for "Object ID" and "Object Abbre". When I tired creating a Position, the system prompted for an "Object ID" and I don't have one.

My question is, is this somehow generated by the system or do I need to create any? And if I need to create an Object ID, what is the <u>step by step</u> process since this is the first time for me.

I appreciate your help.

Object ID is one of the characteristics of the objects in OM module. The other characteristics are Status, Validity Date, Time Constraints etc.

Every object must be allocated an object ID. The object is identified by a combination of plan version, object type and object ID. Object IDs are numeric.

There are two types of number assignment: Internal assignment - the system automatically allocates the object an object ID from the corresponding number range, External assignment - the user enters the object ID.

You maintain number ranges for object IDs in Customizing. Number ranges for internal number assignment are indicated by the letters “IN”. Number ranges for external number assignment are indicated by the letters “EX”“.

Reward points appreciated,

Thank You,
