DP-to-ERP forecast release - material & location master required in APO ?


Hello experts,

we are investigating using the DP-to-ERP forecast release functionality. Purpose is to transfer a APO-DP generated forecast to the connected R3 system.

I see 2 things:

(A) using the "Release from InfoProvider to ERP System" report (in the SAP menu Demand Planning > Planning > Release ) --> I could use a virtual provider based on the DP planning area to do so

(B) Maintain Release Profiles (Demand Planning > Environment > ..)

Question: do I need the locations (= plants) and the products in the APO in the material master available ? (I want to avoid CIFing such products to APO for the purpose of release the DP FCST to R3 only). The SAP help on this topic says for Option (B) I need to have material and location master data in APO. On option (A) it looks to me that I don't need to have this. Could somebody pls help here ?
