ALE setup question regarding partner profile


Hello all,

I am attempting to set up the ALE layer to push GL master changes from QAC to DEV.

Should the partner profile be created in transaction WE20, or WE24/WE27?

In development, what should the Partner Profile inbound and outbound parameters be? The following is what I thought they should be.

Partner number "DEV_200"

Inbound parameters:

Partner Function ="LS"

Message Type = "GLMAST"

Outbound parameters, left blank

Partner number "QAC_100"

Inbound parameters, left blank

Outbound parameters:

Partner Function ="LS"

Message Type = "GLMAST"

Do I need the message type SYNCH in either the inbound or the outbound parameters? If I do, what partner function is associated with message type SYNCH.

What ever settings I use in development for partner number inbound/outbound parameters , I expect that in QAC the settings will be reversed. Do you agree with the previous sentence?

I am finding these questions quite confusing. SAP documentation, and other documentation I found when searching the Internet, didn't answer these questions. Or, they answered them in such a way that I did not understand the answer. One of the documents I was looking at was labeled "The advanced guide to implementing SAP R/3's Application Link Enabling (ALE)" and I found this document on SDN.
