  • Adding Source Application Business Object Groups
    The advantage of creating a business object group is that when all active event types within the group are registered with the same event service, the tables within the group are processed in the sequence you set up. For instance, you may always want a customer’s base data (ad_mstr and cm_mstr) processed prior to sales data (so_mstr and sod_det).
    If active event types in a business object group are not registered with the same event service, business objects in the group will be processed by different event services, which defeats the purpose of business object groups since you cannot guarantee that data of designated business objects will be processed as set up in the group in a single-thread manner. This gives rise to a warning message in configuration validation.
    Note: Due to sequencing requirements, these business objects are processed in a single thread. Since this will inhibit performance, business object groups should be used only if absolutely necessary.
    Note: Business object groups are not relevant for source application types that employ DDP.
    Click Business Object Groups under the source application. The Business Object Groups overview screen displays.
