IDOC META DATA

Hi,

For outbound Idoc scenario's, we have updated idoc meta data in IDX2, just wanted to know is this fine or do we have to explicity import idoc into design [IR], just wanted to get clarification on this.

Thanks

Selvam

    I think updating meta data using transaction idx2 is enough.

      Hi,

      Irrespective of the inbound and outbound idocs you need to do the below if idoc has been extended..

      1. Import into IR for reflecting the idoc change done..

      2. Metadata clerance in idx2..

    Hi,

    You will have to import the structure in IR as well so as to see the change in mapping.

    Thanks all for your replies. What if there is no mapping, like its just a pass through interface, still is it required. Thanks

      Hi Selvam,

      As you pointed earlier that this is an outbound idoc. It is expected that you will need a mapping to populate the idoc with data before it is sent to SAP system (say R/3, ISU). If in case you do not have any mapping but still idoc is part of the scenario then following steps are absolutely essential

      1. If the idoc has undergone structural changes import it into PI and activate it.

      2. Delete the entry of the idoc metadata using IDX2 transaction. Re-importing the idoc metadata structure is not mandatory since once you run the scenario system will automatically import it.

      3. Ensure the Idoc structure has been released in the system (ISU,R/3) from where you are importing it into PI otherwise even after following steps 1 and 2, you may find the destination is not receiving idoc data in proper format.

      regards
