Data modeling: Do we need to put process related fields into repository?


Hi gurus,

Our scenario is regarding central data management. The end users input some master data in the user interface which is developed by using BPM and webdynpro, then after finally approved, the master data flows into MDM system and distribute to different backend systems.

My question is: During the request and approval process, there are some fields like "request reason","approve reason" ( and some other fields which is not important for backend application system), do we need to put those fields in the MDM model? Which option should we choose: sending the master data to MDM untill finally approved, or sending the data in each request or approval step?

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
