How to transfer Article information by triggering the WP_PLU Idoc?

Hi Retail Experts,

My client has a requirement to send the article information and its price information to a new site. When we add a new site to an assortment.

In order to transfer this information(Article, Price) to POS we want to use only WP_PLU Idoc type.

My question here,

1. Is it possible to send the ARTMAS related information as well via WP_PLU idoc? (Already made the extension to the basic type for WP_PLU)

2. How to trigger WP_PLU message which carries both article information and price information. When we generate a change pointer for DMARC in table BDCP2.

3. Please find the attached screenshot of BD52, in which for WP_PLU message DMARC table and field WERKS is activated. Still WP_PLU idoc is not triggering when i run the program RBDMIDOC for WP_PLU message.

    Hi Sridhar,

    I would not recommend you to send ARTMAS data with other IDoc. First of all, it needs not just a big effort when implementing the process for outbound, but on the receiving side needs to be processed this non-standard data structure as well, (in the right order).

    On the other hand, if you send much more data in the WP_PLU IDoc, than it was designed, you will have to face very quickly with the performance issues resulting from this.

    It is also important to mention that such modification will be not supported by SAP. I would really recommend you to keep ARTMAS and WP_PLU separated.

    Regarding the last question:
    The table names that are analyzed by default are: MARA, DMARM, DMEAN, DMAKT, DMAMT, DWLK2, WLK1, WRF6, etc., but DMARC (and also usually asked DMVKE) are not considered.

    And how should you trigger WP_PLU in general for your new site?

    First it needs to be initialized (WPMI or dummy initialization).
    And later, when you just want to send the changes, customers usually schedule a job with program RWDPOSUP.
    So triggering the outbound for the new site on long term can be automatically performed, but first time initialization will be required.

    Best regards,
