“Field System Alias for OBN” in settings of InfoObject

There is a field in InfoObject maintenance screen tab Business Explorer ->System Alias for OBN. I was curious what is this field useful for. I was not able to find any specific documentation for this field. However it looks like field has a relation to Object-Based Navigation (OBN) scenario. OBN functionality basically resides on SAP Portal

It is possible to do the navigation to object, returned by a business object operation that contains requested and relevant business information, according to the user role. As an example there is a source iView on SAP Portal for which OBN object operation is activated. Target of this navigation returned according user role by requesting information. In case target is InfoObject in BW system we need to maintain this system alias for OBN right away on this IO screen.
