2lis_05_Q0Item Infosource-'Unique Data Records' in Infoprovider



We are using the 2lis_05_Q0item BC Infosource & datasource combination in our system for Quality Management.

From the above infosource the data is getting loaded to a custom ODS (termed “ODS for recording Defect Code”).

These objects were created by some previous team in the project. But now we’re facing an issue coz this ODS has the “Unique Data Records” mark set. And because of this it doesn’t allow you to update any record for which the key combination already exists in the ODS. Effectively the ODS allows only new records to come in from the source system and doesn’t allow to modify any existing record.

If anyone has good experience in QM then can they point out why would one use the “Unique Data Records” setting for this ODS, what could probably be the Business or Functional requirements for this?

Is there anything we can do in the source system so that it pulls only new records into the BW?

We don’t have any docs from the earlier team which explains why they have done this setting. Any help from this forum would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
