RFC destination with CIF application case !


Can someone explain the difference between

Assigning a logical system to a RFC destination and

u201CAssigning a logical system to a RFC destination with CIF Application case" (there are 4 of them in all as i see - AC, RL, RQ, DG, AC- refers to availability check)

e.g I have 2 entries in the system landscape settings.

1) Logical system u2013 RFC destination

2) Logical system- application case AC u2013 RFC destination.

Even if I remove the 2nd entry, the relevant APO ATP FMu2019s are called (just a negative testing to see what goes wrong without application case) but am clueless about this concept of CIF application case. Why such a provision to begin with. The context help says. some transaction need to have synchrious RFC and hence the need but i see the same even without his entry.

    Hello Loknath,

    If I understand your query correctly,

    1.Assign logical system to RFC destination is OK for you.

    2.Assigning the RFC destination to a specific CIF application is used in the following case,

    You have a system/service user set up for communicating with the R/3 system thru CIF & this is assigned to the RFC destination assigned to the point no:1

    & for debugging purposed you need a dialogue user, so you may assign this dialogue user to a different RFC destination & assign it here in the customizing (Assign RFC to application cases) to the application that while the particulat application is called (Debugging...CIF cockpit...etc)the corresponding settings from the different RFC destinations will be used.

    I could not understand your query, where u relate some ATP stuffs with this CIF topic...

      Thanks Mahesh,

      Largely as i understand.. the RFC destination for CIF application case that is assigned to a logical system is for specific application debugging from calling system. (in this case ECC to SCM)

      AC is one the entries in the Application type field. AC= availability check and thats selected as the application case. (img system landscape - apo connection settings).. there are 3 more options there

      so the RFC destination for app case determines the dialog user that can be used for debugging. and the RFC destination in line 1 would continue to have a user dediciate for other CIF updates. Makes sense

      Thanks once again
