    The retail/POS data load--> to POS DM ---> to BW cubes.

    POS DM is part of the BI Content. So you'll have to import BI Content 3.5.3 to get POS DM functionality. Core transactions are /POSDW/MON0 for the POS Workbench and /POSDW/IMG for customizing. You can use the standard POS Inbound IDOCs (WPUUMS, WPUTAB, WPUBON, WPUWBW, WPUFIB) or (and that's the recommended way) BAPI /POSDW/BAPI_POSTR_CREATE.

    After you put the data into the PIPE (pos inbound processing engine) via BAPI (XI), there is nothing else like customizing to distribute these to either the infocubes or something else.So I will give you a basic idea of the steps needed to transfer the data into the cubes.

    Go to TN /POSDW/IMG (/n/POSDW/IMG).

    There you build your own customizing profil, potentially Z001.

    Then you go to the "POS Transactions" and lateron onto "Type Group for POS Transactions". Copy any type you need from the standard profil of the sap.

    The same thing you do with the "Category for POS Transactions". Take care of the entry "Incl./Excl. Task Grp", this is where you link your specific data to a taskgroup. There are tasks linked to any taskgroup, for instance the one you need to feed the cubes. ("Supply BW Immediately, Non-Aggre., w. Distribution")

    Naturally you have to customize the taskgroup and the tasks as well as the transaction categories and lateron the connection between the tasks and the taskgroup in "Tasks for Taskgroup". (should be copy action too)

    If you set up the "Type of Task" to "Immediate Processing", then the data will be processed into the deltasource in the moment there are reaching the pipe.

    All you have to do then is to connect the deltasource to the cubes in TN RSA1.

    There is a Blogg with regard to this inquiry in which way sap pos dm is provided with data.

    Hi Haradev,

    There is NO certification for SAP POSDM. This is purely techno functional concept, where you cannot get books to read. You can refer the below configuration documents, where you can get better idea and approach.

    778 – SAP POS Integration: POS DM Configuration

    Meir learning POSDM does not fulfill, do work in a project (Support or build)😊.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Ramesh D

    • Hi Hardev,

      If you have access to SAP POS DM server DEV/QA please check tcode /n/posdw/mon0.

      First try to understand the all the option in POS workbench and then you can go next.

      There are not much documents available for POS DM.

    Hi Hardev,

    All the documents are SAP licensed, so we cannot share in public forum.

    Please click correct and tentative answer for points.

    Thanks and Regards,
