    Hi Chinu,

    Please refer the below steps:

    1. Open MDM syndicator with Login Credentials

    2. Go to File >New > A pop up window will come here,Select Type = Flat and Remote System = Required Target system and then Press OK.

    3. Now click on Destination Items Tab, Here you can add Destination Item(target Fields) as per your requirement.

    4. Now go to Item Mapping tab, map your MDM fields with this created Destination Items tab

    5. After mapping fields, Go to syndication-->Execute

    Also refer, this article page 11 onwards http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/80eb6ea5-2a2f-2b10-f68e-bf735a45705f?quicklink=index&overridelayout=true

    Hi Chinu,

    To syndicate date to Flat file:

    1. Connect to Syndicator

    2. Destination Items -> Right click -> Add Destination Item -> Exmple: material Number, Material Desc

    3. Item Mapping : Map the fields

    4. Save the map

    5. In console : Create a Remote system (Outbound)

    6. Create Port -> Select Format as delimited Text , Delimiter \t , assign map

    7. keep Processing: Continous

    8. Test: Create new record

    9. Check in the outbound ready folder : the file should be there

    10. Configure PI to pick the files and send it to ECC

    For XML format:

    Define a xsd which will define the structure of your destination side.

    You need to define the xsd in Console in the table XML Schemas

    Connect to syndicator

    File -> New

    Select the XSD you declared here

    Next -.> Map the fields and save the map

    Then, syndicate.

    Create Remote system, port . Assign map tp the port.

    You can have the scenario: MDM -> PI-> ECC

    Refer this link for step by step procedure: /people/harrison.holland5/blog/2006/11/27/mdm-syndication

    Please refer the below links for complete understanding of the scenarios:

    Hi Chinu,

    You should understand here one thing like whether you are going to use PI or not. If you are using PI then give them the fields you are going to use then they can create an xsd schema for you. Once when you have the xsd you can upload in MDM console and can use this xsd directly. Else you have to create flat file and here you have to create all the fields manually in MDM syndicator. Once when you have the target fields in syndication map it directly. Some help you can get here also, it is for mdm 5.5 but the steps are same in 7.1 also:

    http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/c0827507-7d4d-2a10-91b1-e85ef67f013d?quicklink=index&overridelayout=true

    Also please follow other suggestions in this thread for automatic syndication in production. Also if you have MDM PI adapter in PI then you can directly send from MDM to PI.
