How is the Distribution Performed?

To distribute control data filter objects are entered in the distribution model for the CONDAT message type. When you maintain the control data distribution in the distribution model and subsequently distribute the model, this has the effect that:

Maintaining Control Data

When maintaining control data, your changes will be recorded by the correction and transport system in a change request. After you have maintained the control data, the change request is released and is ready for transport.

When the transport request is released, a ALE distribution model is checked to ascertain whether other systems are interested in any of the control data objects. If so, the Transaction BD77 with the parameter transport request is called and the user is shown a list of all the objects. It is then processed further in one of two ways:

  1. Transport requests are generated for each system, containing the exact set of objects that are defined by the intersection of the distribution model (message type CONDAT) and the request just released. This transport request must then be released and transported.
  2. An IDoc for the message type CONDAT can be sent to each system, which then generates a work flow item in the target system. The person processing the work flow item can display a list of all these objects (the same as with Transaction BD77) and can start Transaction SM30 or SCUO to start the standard tables synchronization for each object. The synchronization must be carried out manually.

It is recommended to choose the first option and to notify the administrator of option 2 as this does not require you to synchronize the tables manually.
