    To automate the import process follow below settings

    In Import manager, You need to create map in import manager and save.

    In console, assign map to respectie port.

    Processing type fo that port should be "Automatic'.

    Import server should be loaded and running..

    MDIS imports files from the Ready folder of a repositoryu2019s inbound port.

    Q - 2

    When you select source Type as "Port" An inbound port identifies a file system location that contains source data files waiting for import into MDM. Check reference guide page 417 for moe information

    • Hi,

      Can you please check Path mentioned for "Distribution Root Dir"parameter in MDS.ini file. You will get mds.ini file located in

      the usr\sap\<SAPSID>\<instance_name>\config directory. Go to mentioned path and check for repository and ports.

      Please confirm.
