Processchain Naming id

Hi,

I am working in very new system &I want to create process chain for my all the object.

I have few questions before creating it

1) I want to know is there any pre-requesties to do before creating the process chain(I am working in the new system)?

2) How to keep the naming for each process chain? (Process variant & PC tech id)

3) Do i need to create the PC for Full & Delta update?(Full update can i do it in manual)

    Hi,

    1) You need to check proper authorization for creation of process chain and developer key if you want to add ABAP program into it. You can create a process chain in Development box to test for it.

    2) Regarding naming convention, it depends on client. The naming and description should be in such a way that it should tracked and find easily. example : PC_SD_001 ( Process Chain for Sales and distribution ) , PC_MM_001 ( Process Chain for MM ) etc.

    3) You can upload full data manually and use process chain for loading delta on a daily basis.

    4) You can use full update package to load text.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Hi Vickram...

    1) I want to know is there any pre-requesties to do before creating the process chain(I am working in the new system)?

    If you want to include a load process in the process chain, you need to have already created an InfoPackage.

    You cannot load flat file data from a client workstation in the background. Therefore, you must store your data on an application server.

    2) How to keep the naming for each process chain? (Process variant & PC tech id)

    3) Do i need to create the PC for Full & Delta update?

    4) Few of the IO TEXT object are not supported for delta?inthis case can i keep the full update IP for PC?

    Hi,

    1. after developing the system you need to automate the system by using creating the process chain.

    process chain will automate the system.

    2.according the client requiremtns they will provide the technical names EX - ZPC_MD_ATTR, ZPC_SD_ATTR, ZPC_SD_TD

    3.in process chain level we can add the delta process chain if it is going delta load daily if not will use the full load.

    4.may be all master data process chain we do full load. you want check the extractor type you use the tx - RSA2 -> give the data source name check it specific data source will support delta or full.

    Thanks,

    Phani.

    Hi,

    I would suggest creating:

    1. some PC's for master data (eg. the one for FIGL/AP/AR another for CO, MM, FIAA and so on)

         (you can include processes for deleting PSA here)

    2. PS's for transactional data (each for loading to infosourses)

        (you can include processes for deleting PSA and changelog here)

    Insert them into a multichain to start them one by one.

    Regards, Leszek

    Hello Vickram,

    1. The only prerequisites before creating a PC is that you should have all the objects in active state.Also create the chains in Dev then transport it to Quality & Production
    2. You can actually give any name. But try maintaining a naming convention. This will prove to be very helpful in future. Since you are creating all the chains yourself, you must create and document and follow the naming convention for that system.
    3. You can put wither of the two[FULL OR DELTA] in the process chain. Important is which update type you are going to use frequently. Process chain are only to automate the process and reduce the manual effort. So understand the business requirement and then put wither delta or Full. However, just to answer you can do FULL upload manually.
    4. Yes you can keep FULL update in the process chain.


    Regards,
