How to...MDG-M: Rule Based Workflow with Partial Activation
MDG-M uses the rule-based workflow. When using the rule-based workflow, the process pattern '06 Activation (Bypass Snapshot)' means that the material is activated, even if the material record was changed in the backend system since the change request was created. Any backend changes are lost upon activation. You can adjust this behavior with SAP Note 1797009. The Note describes how you can change the behavior in such a way that the system only overwrites changes to entities present in the change request rather than all entities.
