Customer-Specific Extensions in the OCI

If you want to extend the standard fields for the SAP SRM PunchOut Call-Up Parameters, you have 2 alternatives

Use the dedicated field NEW_ITEM-CUSTFIELD1-5

These fields have no fixed semantics in the OCI and this means that you can transfer any contents in order to then evaluate them in BAdI BBP_CATALOG_TRANSFER. In Releases prior to SAP Enterprise Buyer 3.0 it is not possible to transfer these fields directly to the shopping cart item. As of SAP Enterprise Buyer 3.0, it is possible to include these fields (without the prefix NEW_ITEM-) in the customer-specific using the Include CI_BBP_ITEM_SC; the contents are then automatically forwarded to the shopping cart and saved with it.

Use the OCI Customer-specific Include  CI_OCI_CUSTOMER_EXTENSION

This customer-specific Include is also available as of SAP Enterprise Buyer 3.0; it allows you to extend the OCI generically. All fields that are created in the Include can then be transferred by the catalog as NEW_ITEM-[n]. The fields are also available in the BAdI BBP_CATALOG_TRANSFER. If the fields are also to be available in the shopping cart and are to be saved, they must also be created in the Include CI_BBP_ITEM_SC
