Usually, an Equipment ID is an 18 digit number starting with leading zeros and followed with a sequence number. While the Equipment ID real number stored in database contains leading zeros, you may prefer to discard leading zeros and display the sequence number alone.
A new commented optional section is now available with Asset_Transform XSLT file to synchronize assets without leading zeros.
<!-- REQUIRED FOR CONVERTION TO REMOVE LEADING ZEROS- OPTIONAL SECTION- NOT TO BE MODIFIED, THE VALUE SHOULD BE ALWAYS X -->
You need to uncomment the above mentioned section in XSLT file if you want to use this option.
Do not change the section details, and the value sent is always X.
You can also sync an asset without this section, and SAP shall receive it. In this case, the sync is performed with the leading zeros.
When you use the option with Equipment install or dismantle functionalities, use the option for both the functionalities. There is no option to mix between the option of leading zeros. For more information on how to use this option, see Parameter to switch ON/OFF SAP Equipment conversion section of SAP AIL Installation and Configuration guide delivered along with the software.
