CIF issue upon transfer of Class and characteristics from ECC to APO

Hi,

We are facing an issue in transferring class and characteristics to APO from ECC.

Characteristic xxxxxxxx could not be created

Message no. CLMM805

Diagnosis

The characteristic could not be created. A characteristic of the same name already exists.

I think we know the problem root cause, however no idea how to correct the issue.

Initially our ECC system of client 100 connected to APO of client 100 and all master data and transaction data moved to APO then.

we did not see any CIF issues for class and characteristic even.

However, due to some reasons we had to create new ECC client 400, now RFC connection is made between ECC client 400 to APO client 100.

We deactivated all integration models of ECC client 100 and create new integration models in ECC client 400 for CIF data transfer.

All the master data and transaction data moved to APO with out any issues, but facing issues in transferring class and characteristics with above message.

Can you please provide your valuble inputs what we can do to get rid of this CIF issue in this situation?

Thanks in advance,

Krish

    Hi Krish,

    Exactly, you need to delete old data from your APO system first and then retransfer the data from new ECC client again, you already know the issue.

    You can also check, if you are able to achieve desired result with existing APO data without transferring new data to save on time.

    Hii Krish,

    Classes and characteristic need to delete first from from APO side, then only you can able to resend them to APO.

    Because your APO client same as previous only ECC client has changed. So APO already have those Characteristics and classes.  You have to do dual maintenance.

    So once you delete from APO side, try to re CIF it'll work.

      Hi Krish,

      Master data deletion in APO without deletion of transection data is not a possibility, if somehow you are able to delete the same, which is not standard route, then you will face issues later.

      So i would suggest to check if you are able to carry all required processes without resending the data from new client, and then on some later data do a proper curtover for this activity.
