Hi Experts,

When a infoobject created in BI7, it seems master data infosource gets automatically created. If I delete a master data infosource, how can I manually recreate it?

Thanks in advance,

only when u create a MD infoobject with direct update..does it automatically create the infosource and the update rules.

u can choose to go with flexible update option..create ur own infosource..and map it to the MD infoobject.

Hi Bill,

U can create a datasource manually by right clicking on the infoobject and select Additional Functions and select Generate Export Datasource.


goto Datasource menu under Modeling tab in RSA1, select the application component , right click and select Create Datasource:

there give the tech name and select the source system from which u r getting data and select *datatype datasource * as master data Attribute.

Assign points if helpful.

If you want to create an Info Source of InfoObject (masterdata) rite click your concerned Application Component -> create info source, from radio button select "Direct Update", put name of your info object in dat corresponding field.

activate it.

Next step would be to "assign Data source"... and so on.
