Impact of deleting a field from datasource

Hi Experts,

Let's consider Gereric extractor in BW which is created based on a table in ECC.

I would like to know, what will be the impact if any field from that table is deleted/removed from ECC.

Do I need to make any changes in BW datasource and transport the changes from dev to prod or just replicate metadata for that datasource in prod directly is enough?

Please advise.

Thanks,

Saravanan.

Hi Sravan,

I think you need to replicate the data source and move the replica to production system. As there is a change in the extract structure, data source in BW goes to modified state upon replication.

Thanks Satya. To confirm, so transport movement from dev to prod is required and we cannot directly replicate the data source in prod in this case is it?

Hi Sravanan,

Yes, once you replicate the DS, it goes into inactive state. Just do the changes in ECC dev system and replicate the DS in BW dev, then you will understand the impact.
