Our business requirements designate that we must create a custom extension table named CX_STATE_DEFAULTS. We also need to create an FK extension column (X_PSC_ID) on S_ASSET, which will have Foreign Key Table "CX_STATE_DEFAULTS". According to SR# 38-886102251, Custom tables will be created with a User Key that is NULL. That same SR also states that EIM does not support Foreign Keys to custom tables.
Our initial data conversion will include more than 10 million Financial Accounts, each of which must be populated with a Foreign Key reference to this custom table. This makes it impossible to populate these base table columns with anything other than EIM. Several questions then.
- Has EIM been enhanced in 7.7 to support resolution of Foreign Keys to custom tables?
- If not, can Solution Support Engineering enable this functionality by creating a valid User Key on the custom table and using Advance Db Extensibility?
- If not, how should be support this requirement and our initial data conversion needs?
