will reimporting idoc schema remove old mappings ?

Hi,

I have an idoc imported in SAP PI by another developer. I am adding a new field to a custom segment in ECC and I want that fiels to be used in PI.

So I assume in ECC , I need to use WE60 and export the schema to XSD format and then import in PI ?

My questions:

1. How do I re - import in PI ? Menu option ?

2. Will this re import delete the old data mappings ? Will I have to redo the data mapping for all fields ?

thnks

    Actually, you can just directly import IDOC into IR or ERS of PI.

    If you do IDOC packaging, then you can export to XSD and adjust occurence, re-imported.

    You need to make sure:

    1. Update IDOC meta data in IDX2, this make sure the newly added field appear in PI

    2. Your existing mapping will not be affected assuming you just add a few fields.

    Adding to what Liang mentioned, if you "re-name" an existing field which is already mapped, then you will loose mapping for that field. So, make sure all field mappings are in place.
