Using Data Import Framework and MDMGX for MDG-F

0 Kudos

Good day experts

I want to extract GL master data using MDMGX and import it into MDG using DIF. I have created Logical and physical file paths and the logical file name definition and maintained it in AL11. In Import Master Data I get the error Directory abcd is not valid.

My question is : When using DIF in MDG for Financials ,do I need to Set Up Data Transfer Using DIF ( similar to MDG-Material).I have not done this

Set Up Data Transfer Using DIF | SAP Help Portal (Material)

Steps 1.Create an XML-file port 2.Create Logical System 3.Create RFC connection 4.Maintain Distribution Model 5. Create Partner Profile 6. Maintain outbound message type settings in WE20

To be able to import IDoc-XML files the following set up activities need to be carried out:

1. Use transaction IDX1 to create two ports in the IDoc adapter, one for sending and the other for receiving

2. In transaction WE21 enter the receiver XML port using the same name as in step 1 above

3. In transaction BD54 enter the sender and receiver partner numbers as logical system names.

Please advise as to whether I need to configure the above settings for Data Export from source system for MDG-F.

Setting Up DIF for Financials only has File Directories requirements although it indicates As a minimum.

Please advise as to whether I need to configure settings for Data Export from source system.

Thank you

Hi Saanvi Reddy,

regarding how to use the usage of MDMGX for initial load MDG-F please refer to the How to... consulting document Using the Master Data Management Generic Extractor (MDMGX) for Initial Load in MDG-F.

You can find this document at our How-to Information for SAP Master Data Governance page as well, where you can find many other useful How to... consulting documents for MDG/MDC applications.

Thank you Attila Toth

However my question is not answered and I could not find anything on the How-to Information for SAP Master Data Governance page.

My question is : To be able to use DIF for GL master data (object ACCA) do I need to perform these steps? (Steps found on the MDG_M page)

Steps 1.Create an XML-file port 2.Create Logical System 3.Create RFC connection 4.Maintain Distribution Model 5. Create Partner Profile 6. Maintain outbound message type settings in WE20

To be able to import IDoc-XML files the following set up activities need to be carried out:

1. Use transaction IDX1 to create two ports in the IDoc adapter, one for sending and the other for receiving

2. In transaction WE21 enter the receiver XML port using the same name as in step 1 above

3. In transaction BD54 enter the sender and receiver partner numbers as logical system names.

Using the Master Data Management Generic Extractor (MDMGX) for Initial Load in MDG-F. only mentions creation of logical and physical directories.

Thank you
