3146682 - How to identify the language-specific keys for sales partner functions


  • You subscribe to a sales order event. In the payload, you find information about the document type that you cannot interpret (for example, “SalesOrderType”: “TA” when a sales order item is changed).
  • You want to enable communication scenarios where you use business events and APIs and want to know how to map the data. Therefore, you want to find out what the value of a specific field is for your logon language.

Business events do not contain any language-dependent data fields, but show the format found in the database in the response. So instead of seeing “OR” for a standard order, as you would on an English UI, you see “TA”.


To find the equivalent of a field value in your logon language, you can use the I_SalesDocumentTypeLangDepdnt CDS view for a mapping between language-dependent and language-independent values for the SalesDocumentType or SalesOrderType fields.
