    Hello SAP CRM,

    A replication object can be Order Header,Customer Record.

    In the transaction SMOEAC You can select the Object type(Employees, Organization etc..)Replication Objects need to be activated by default they are activated when they are created Activated Replication object is assigned to a PUBLICATION.

    In the application(SMOEAC) choose object-->Create.

    Please refer notes 423443.

    Subscriptions are sites when they are assigned defined Publications.

    (A site is a reciever/Supplier of data for replication defined on the CRM server,

    You can assign Employees,Subscriptions,Organizations to a site).

    Hope this helps.

    Please reward points.

    Hello Jacopo,

    The CRM Middleware course material CR500/CR540/CR550 details out the concepts of a Replication Obj,Publication and Subscription.

    Let me try and illustrate this concept with a real-world example. This is normally the example I provide whenever I train employees.

    What do you do when you want to subscribe for SAP Netweaver magazine published from SAP Press?

    1) SAP Press publises a number of SAP magazines. So, first you select the publication of your choice. Your publication = "SAP Netweaver".

    2) Next, you have to subscribe for it in the website by furnishing your credit card details, shipping address and the duration of your subscription. So, that becomes your subscription. So, a publication can have many subscriptions (sent by many people)

    The replication object is just the abstraction which collects all the publications and their corresponding subcriptions and relates them a particular Bdoc type. Normally, the name of a replication object = Name of the Bdoc type. E.g. BUPA_MAIN. Replication objects can be bulk objects or simple intelligent objects depending on whether mass data or filtered data is desired. Naturally, there will not be any subscriptions for a bulk replication object.

    Now, once you have created a site and have done its configuration, you can associate the site to a number of replication objects depending on what type of data would the site be interested in.

    Hope you are now able to figure out the meaning of these MW terms and understand the relationship between them.

    Please reward with points if this helps!
