hi,

When we create the RFC destination, we create it for TRUSTED target system and while maintaining the partner profiles, only the partner will maintained at WE20. So the data is secured during the transmission.

Hence there's no or very minimal risk in the data transfer.

Thanks

Hi,

ALE is used with in organization and between partners. Also, the communication happens in asynchronus memory communication pattern. i.e. a kind of one system memory to another system memory dirctly copy.

The communication is trusted.

As the data is communicated in IDoc pattern, you need to monitor the system to get all idocs into Status 53.

1. There will be many scenarios where idocs require some manual intervension to process them.

2. There may be some processing code issues or data issues may arrise during the communication.

the above can be handled and they cannot be treated as risk or leak
