ALE transactions required ?

Hi

Mine is an Idoc to File scenario. I have finished with the IR part and all set to start with the ID part. I have done the mapping and all and the Idoc is already imported to the SWc. So do I still have to do the SM59, WE20 and WE21 transactions, the ALE transactions before going ahead with ID. Idoc is already imprted, to a different SWCV and I have finished mapping. Idocs are all imported to a common namespace.

    Hi Midhun,

    First things first. Importing an IDOC structure into IR and setting up the connectivity between SAP R/3 and XI system are not the same.

    When you import the structure of the IDOC, you are just copying the structure of the idoc in the R/3 system into your IR. Thats it. It is at design time.

    For the actual IDOC transfer to happen, you HAVE to do all the settings like SM59, we21, we20 etc.

    • > So if the same Idoc is repeated in another configuration scenario, then we don't have to import again.

      YES CORRECT.No need to import it once Again.

      > Would it throw any exception if I create the transactions again ?

      No need to create once again RFC destination details,it will not throu any exception,but it says the destination same name created alredy.

    You can check if you have to do these steps or if they have been already done by someone.

    You can do ID config first, as you like.

    ALE config and ID config must be finished before testing the scenario, but they are independend.
