    Hi !

    Idoc Metadata:

    IDoc (Intermediate Document) metadata comprises structures for the corresponding IDoc types .This metadata is just a description of available structures

    and fields.Using an RFC connection, metadata of this type can be either called directly at runtime or loaded to the Integration Server beforehand.Thus it can be loaded in two ways:

    1. During the runtime

    2. Before the actual message flow.

    To find out what metadata has already been loaded, call the transaction Metadata Overview for IDoc Adapter (IDX2).The system displays a screen with the directory of all systems connected with the IDoc adapter (including a description) for which metadata has already been loaded. Choose Port Maintenance in IDoc Adapter () to call the corresponding transaction and to create additional ports.

    Regards

    Abhishek

    See this for details

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/8a/b8b13bb3ace769e10000000a11402f/content.htm

    U can have a look at the idx2 transaction on XI for the details

    Little more

    IDOC metadata:

    IDoc (Intermediate Document) metadata comprises structures for the corresponding IDoc types that are required by the IDoc adapter to convert these IDocs to IDoc XML format and the other way around.

    Using an RFC connection, metadata of this type can be either called directly at runtime or loaded to the Integration Server beforehand.

    The system containing the metadata is either the sender or receiver SAP system or, if the sender or receiver system is a subsystem, the SAP reference system where the metadata is saved.

    You can display metadata that has already been loaded, or if you are upgrading the application system then you can delete the metadata and reload it.

    Prerequisites

    To access the metadata in the sender system, you must establish an RFC connection to this system using the port maintenance in the IDoc adapter

    check

    All the schema of fields what you have in IDoC is called Idoc meta data.

    Like Fields element Types, Their Data Types as well as information about Idoc like:

    Idoc Name, Segment numbers and their fields, release info etc. is called metadata of an Idoc.

    Concept is: Data about data is called metadata.

    Hope it will help.

    BR,

    IDOC meta contains the structure of incomming data

    1) The IDOCmeta data stored in the application system, the integration server must retrive the data via an RFC call back Transaction IDX1 is used to configure a port to use for retrieving meta data

    2) If IDOC definition changesin application system,the meta data must be deleated from the cache IDX2.

    3)To improve performance the IDOC meta data is cached at integration server. The IDOC cache can be viewed in transaction IDX2

    Hi,

    Metadata means structure of the IDoc. XI uses this metadata for IDoc related scenarios.

    IDX2 is the tcode for viewing the meta data. and also u can use IDX_CHECK_METADATA for comparing the meta data.

    for more information please go tru the link below,
