RE:[sap-log-sd] Master Data Replication from Non-SAP to SAP

Hi, Pamela - I responded, but I didn't see the response come through.

How are you going to perform the updates to SAP - real time (near real time) or batch? If real time, consider using middleware like BizTalk or SAP PI where you could create orchestrations to call an SAP-delivered BAPI to create the master data in SAP. If you use a standard BAPI, you're assured that your calls will work, even through upgrades. You also have control on the application side, rather than the SAP side.

Even if you wanted to do it in batch, I would recommend having a process that pulls the relevant data from your system and loops through calling the BAPI to make the entries in SAP. One of the other advantages to controlling the code on the non-SAP side is that if you are using an auto-numbering in SAP (like for customer) the BAPI will return the customer number to you, allowing your code to update the external database with the SAP customer number, creating an automatic link to the SAP data.

Good luck!

- Lou

Subject: Master Data Replication from Non-SAP to SAP


Our material master /customer is created in non-sap system. We want that as soon as material master is created in non sap system, the same should be created in SAP system.

Can someone suggest how this can be done and in short the config steps, message types etc.
