What is the Datasource for the fields Top Level Account ID and Account Hierarchy


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Account Management WorkCenter
  2. Navigate to Accounts View
  3. Search and select any account
  4. In general tab under Details these fields are available


These are Standard Fields and not available on any Data Sources


  1. Business Object CUSTOMER has association to business object BUSINESS_PARTNER_HIERARCHY to identify the hierarchy group to which the instance of CUSTOMER (Account) is assigned to.
  2. On the UI additional logic is applied to determine the TopLevel Group of the hierarchy and the customer/account and instance assigned to this one. This is then displayed on the UI.
  3. There is not "the" field/element on the account/customer object which matches this information. Therefore, it is not available on any existing data sources. If you want to "see" that information on a data source, they need to rebuild that via implementation for a data source (if that is possible in PDI).
