Defining RFC Destinations for SyncBOs

Use

By defining an RFC destination for a SyncBO, you can define the target back-end system for synchronization with the SyncBO.

You can define either an RFC destination for each SyncBO or a default RFC destination to be used by all SyncBOs.

For SyncBOs of type Back-end Driven (T51) or Timed 2-Way (T01) with multiple language support, you must only use RFC destinations with no logon language definied.

Prerequisites

An RFC destination was created for the target back-end system and tested. The target back-end system contains the application for the SyncBOs used by the mobile applications.

The RFC destinations should be defined using transaction SM59. For more information, see Creating an RFC Destination Pointing to the Backend.

The RFC setting is used when the mobile data is synchronized. The RFC user must have the appropriate authorizations to execute the function modules in the back-end system, unless synchronization is performed using the Current User or in a Trusted System landscape.

Procedure

       3.      Choose Edit ® RFC Destination.

       4.      Choose Yes to confirm the message in the dialog box.

       5.      Select SyncBO Specific, and select the RFC destination for the target system.

       6.      Confirm your entry by choosing  Continue.

Defining a Specific RFC Destination for a SyncBO Using the Profile Dialog

...

       1.      Start transaction merep_pd.

       2.      Choose the Synchronizer tab page.

       3.      Choose the SyncBO tab page (if not selected already).

       4.      Choose  Display <-> Change.

       5.      Change the RFC destination of a synchronization control record for the corresponding SyncBO.

       6.      Choose  Save.

Defining a Default RFC Destination

...

       1.      Start transaction merep_pd.

       2.      Choose the Synchronizer tab page.

       3.      Choose the Destination tab page.

       4.      Choose  Display <-> Change and enter the target RFC destination.

       5.      Choose  Save.

Result

The SyncBOs with the specified RFC destination are synchronized with the specified back-end system. The SyncBOs without the specified RFC destination are synchronized with the default back-end system.
