Integrated Master Data
All master data created for FI-SL dimensions and other SAP applications. Master data whose dimensions are affected by direct posting and other FI-SL functions must be validated. When data is transferred to the special purpose ledgers, a comprehensive check takes place in the source system to ensure that the data is consistent in all systems. The master data parameters of the sender systems are used in the special purpose ledgers to extend the account assignments (cost center, article, and so on).
Master data validation is only used in FI-SL internal activities (for example, when entering data directly in FI-SL, in planning, in assessment/distribution, during currency translation and for texts in reporting).
