ALE between ECC6 EhP5 et ECC6 EhP4

I was wondering if there are any risks working with two different EhP versions between HCM (EhP5) and FICO (EhP) through an ALE connection. It should depend on the content exchange between these domaines, and at this stage of the project only basic content (such Cost Center, Company Code, etc.) should be bound between HCM and FICO through ALE.

Is someone out there already experienced this ALE connection between EhP5 and EhP4 and if so, how did it work?

    Hello Lionel,

    If your only worry is about the risk involved in transferring data from one EHP to other EHP, Then there is no risk involved in this, ALE transfer will work perfectly, there would be no issue. Moreover EHP are based on ECC 6.0 base, So the base is same in both the cases. ALE transfer will work in the same manner you need to create IDOC structure on both the sides and then do the further activities.

    Hope the above should be helpful.

    Best Regards,
