Hi All,

During all SAP Implementation and roll-out projects we will have a requirement of updating different kinds of master data in the system.

The most common way is to use the 'MASS' transaction or develop custom programs using BAPI, BDC or LSMW to update master data.

For customers on S/4 Hana with MDG component , we can use Mass processing and consolidation option to upload different kind of master data's (Business Partner, Business partner Relationship, Product master ).

In this blog i will share how to configure MDC for Business partner Mass change and use standard SAP FIORI app to perform in the front end.



Master data consolidation and mass processing (MDC) is a module which helps in data cleansing.

A standard MDC process has many process steps , and in this blog i am going to share only about

creating the process templates , defining the scope and Activation .

It requires some basic knowledge of MDG , Odata services , BGRFC and authorization objects.



  1. The first step is to configure the process templates.

    •     Go to MDCIMG ->Configure process Models-> Import predefined process templates      for business partners 

    •    Once the BC set is activated the process template will be available for use.

     2   Configure process model

    • 147 BO for Business partner , 1405 for Business partner relationship , 194 for product and MDC_147 for consolidation of Business partner

    • We have configured for 147.

3   Configure Scope 

    • In this step we can define the fields which are going to be changed during a mass processing process.

    • We have defined a (LFB1-BUSAB) as a field just for testing purpose but we are going to use custom scope and define our fields during mass processing.

 4.  Configure Activation

    • The activation step can be configured with a change request or can be direct this article we have done direct activation

    • There are 3 types of records -> New , Update and match groups.

 5. Configure BGRFC destination

    • BGRFC is required to trigger the workflow process for the MDC consolidation

    • Go to SBGRFCCONF -> Define Inbound Destinations

    • Go to SBGRFCCONF -> Scheduler destinations

 6.  Configure Fiori app


P:S: In the next blog i show how the Fiori apps are used to update, extend and delete the Master data.



This article will help consultants in setting up MDC in their system and use it for master data updates.
