Publishing Product Catalog without Images/Documents

Hello Experts

I got a nice write-up ([link|]) mentioning that the web server is not required while replicating the Product Catalog and when no images are required.

But still for the activity - Setting Target for Publishing Catalog Contents, I would like to know the entries to be made when we do not need any document to be uploaded with product Catalog.

SPROCustomer Relationship Management  Master Data  Product Catalog  Set Targets for Publishing Catalog Contents

Publish. target

Host name

HTTP port

HTTP directory

RFC destination

FTP Port

User name


FTP directory

Regards, Vishal

    Hello Vishal,

    There are two process at work usually when you mention product catalog replication

    1. The Replication (creation of the TREX index)

    2. Publication of the catalog content this uses the function module COM_PCAT_IMS_PB_PUBLISH to publish the catalog content to a webserver.

    If you do not wish to publish catalog content all you need to do is leave the "Publishing Computer ID" field blank during the replication process and the publication will not take place.

    The configuration in Set Targets for Publishing Catalog Contents will be checked and used if you have decided to use the Publication.

      Adding images and documents to catalog items is NOT mandatory. It is only optional. There is no need to publish the images / documents if you do not have any. So, the catalog / shop will still work fine without the "optional" step of publishing the images / documents.
