    Hi ,

    Please find the details below:

    GIS Integration

    This function enables you to use the geographical information system (GIS) interfaces, which were provided with the Defense Forces & Public Security component, to exchange data between ERP systems and external GIS. For example, you can transfer force element data about stationing or support relationships from an ERP system to a GIS, where you can display it on a map.


    You can call the interfaces from external GIS (non-SAP systems) directly, provided that they are RFC-enabled. Alternatively, you can use standard GIS integration functions in SAP systems.


    You are using an RFC-enabled GIS.

    You are familiar with using RFC-enabled function modules to connect external systems.


    The following RFC-enabled function modules are available for communication and synchronization between ERP systems and GIS:

    · Provide initial data for GIS

    With function module /ISDFPS/GIS_INITIALIZATION, a GIS can be provided with data from an ERP system about a higher-level force element and all of its lower-level force elements (key values and relationships, and if required also infotypes 1000, 1950, and 1952).

    · GIS – create relationship

    You can create new or change existing support relationships using function module /ISDFPS/GIS_MAINT_MNT (for supply relationships) and function module /ISDFPS/GIS_MAINT_SUP (for maintenance relationships).

    · Maintain force element details

    You can update force element data (infotypes 1000, 1950, 1951, and 1952) from GIS using function module /ISDFPS/GIS_MAINT_DETAIL.

    · Load structure information and Read GIS relationship

    You can transfer structure information from an ERP system to a GIS using function module /ISDFPS/GIS_GET_STRUCTURE (evaluation path used) or, alternatively, function module /ISDFPS/GIS_GET_RELAT (relationship type and direction used).

    · Read force element details

    You can transfer detailed information about the force element (infotypes 1000, 1950, 1951, and 1952) from an ERP system to a GIS using function module /ISDFPS/GIS_GET_DETAIL.


    Use these function modules to connect the GIS you use to an ERP system, and to set up the data transfer.
