How many logical systems do I need?


If I want to send an IDOC from SAP through the business connector to 10 different parties, what is the cleanest way to do so?

Do I have to create for each party a logical system in SAP? And do I have to maintain then for each an RFC destination to the business connector? Can multiple logical systems use the same rfc destination?

Advantage would be that you see in SAP to who the idocs were send, if you only see that one was send to the business connector and it's send from there to 10 parties you have less control ?

thx for helping,

    It depends on the type of document in SAP, and partner type.

    You only need logical systems if the other end is a different system from each other.

    If your IDoc are KU or LI then you can use the SAP number instead of the logical system.

    This means you need more routing rules inside SAP BC. 10 partners is not large. If you have 10000 partners, you have a lot of work. You can always use wildcards in the routing rule (depending on where the messages are going).
