Problem with import parameter


Our GetDetail function has an import parameter that we need to use to filter the returned dataset. The parameter, MTRANTY, shows up correctly in the "Import" section of our GetDetail in the Mapping Screen of merep_sbuilder. What I am not seeing is any reference to MTRANTY in the generated meRepMeta.xml file. In the "Import" section of the mapping screen is does show "Link to Key Field of TOP: MTRANTY" in the Mapping Description.

When I bring up the filtering criteria of our syncbo it shows another field, CUSTOMER, as "Filter Field 1", but I can't seem to be able to change it to MTRANTY as I think it should be.

So, my question is, do the filter field and the import parameter have any connection? Is there something else I need to do to make MTRANTY available in the meRepMeta.xml definition? Or do I just set the key field of TOP (SYNC_KEY from the xml file) to my desired value and perform the synchronization?

On a related note, in the xml file on the "SyncBO id" line, the parameter "reqDirectSync" is set to false. Will this prevent me from initiating a synchronization using SyncManager.synchronizeWithBackend()?
