Metadata

Metadata is data structure of source or destination system. Example, sales order (SO) object in SAP ERP, there are many group of information in SO like header, items, discount, payment, pricing condition, delivery information etc… all group of information displayed in data structures. And object’s structure of SO, SAP call “Message Type“. Message type content all information of SO. When source system want transfer SO to SAP ERP, SAP PO need read SAP ERP SO “Message Type” and provide values for each mandatory fields.

What “Message Type” metadata will be import to SAP PO ?

Base on SAP Implementation “Blueprint Phase”, functional and integration consultant will list out objects will be send and receive to SAP System. There are many message type content information of the same object. In some message type can cover some certain information only.

So, to make decision what message type will be used need investigation between functional consultant and integration consultant.
