syndication of new matester data


in a scenario where we create master data in MDM

and then send it to master data client (ERP)

how to we correlate key mappings in MDM ?

I've found 2 threads about this:

this one mentiones aknowledgments via XI - does it mean

the use of STANDARD aleaud IDOCs?

Syndicating new material creations to R/3 and receiving the MATNR

thsi one mentiones ABAP API

Which is the 'lead' system - MDM or ECC?

but does it mean that there it no standard way fo creating

data in MDM and moving it to MDC and then createing key mappings


thank you for clarification,

    This is a tricky situation. As described in the first thread you mentioned, the problem with using internal number assignment is that ECC assumes either you are creating a material in ECC, or the material being sent to ECC already has a number generated that follows the given restraints. In order to accomodate for this you have to either enhance the function module that processes the inbound IDoc, or change your scenario a bit. In every scenario I've seen, the best solution was to generate the number in MDM before sending to ECC. In order to accomodate for key mappings, or a number range that differs based on a certain critereon you can use a "qualified range". Create a remote system set as type "qualified range". When you syndicate a material to that remote system, you can map the material number to the remote keys.

    I hope this helps
