Search connector for category EAM_TECHOBJ is not active
While working with FIORI tiles, sometimes you face issues when searching within EAM FIORI applications. Error may be like,
- When using the ‘Advanced Search’ option within the applications, there are no results returned.
- You receive an error like “Search connector for category EAM_TECHOBJ is not active” (message EAMS_BO 201) when trying to search for a Technical Object.
The reason for that is, the search models for plant maintenance have been revised and the SAP HANA-based Enterprise Search has been enabled in the Web Dynpro applications in plant maintenance.
How to Address the Issue
The Search Connectors have to be configured for the corresponding Applications via transaction ESH_COCKPIT. In many scenarios it will be ‘Technical Objects’ or ‘Maintenance Notification’ Apps where the following search connectors need to be activated in the back-end system.
Once the EAM relevant connectors are activated, the issue should be no more there.
