A question about item "type and release" of source system creation

Hello expert,

I have a question about item "type and release" of source system creation.

As we know,when we create a web servie source system,there will display a pop-up which includes three items as "logical system","source system"and "type and release".

About the item "type and release",when we push "F4" button,there will be three default selections as below:

"ORA 115 Oracle Applications 11i

TLF 205 Tealeaf 2.05B

XPD 020 SAP xPD".

Who can tell me when and how should I use the three selections.

And also I attempted to input the item by some optional letters except the default three selections and it seems that I can input it freely.

Thank you and Best Regards,

Maggie

    Hi Maggie,

    The 'Type and Release' you are mentioning here is nothing but the description of your source system definiton i.e these are the default source systems set by your basis people also indicating your release. This becomes important when you are troubleshooting certain issues especially when RFC connection problems.

    Hope this helps..

    • Hello DMK,

      Thank you very much for your answer.It is very helpful for me.

      Can I ask you further about it?

      I got that it is a semantic description item.

      You said the default selections are set by our basis people.Would you like to tell me how should we creat a new value except the default ones for item "type and release"?Only by inputing the value in the item directly?But you see we canot see the new value item we created by ourself when we push "F4" button next time ,is that ok?Or do we have to ask basis people to define one new value item just like the default seletions before we use it.

      Also if possible would you like to describe detail about "This becomes important when you are troubleshooting certain issues especially when RFC connection problems."

      Thank you and Best Regards,

      Maggie

    hi,

    For <b>Type and Release</b> field, enter the type of source from a semantic perspective.

    If SAP ships BI Content for a non-SAP source system, a source type and source release are assigned to this content. If you are using the corresponding system, the correct BI Content can only be found if you specify the source type and source release here.

    assign points if it helps.

    Regards,
