How V3 works...

User Transaction

Save submits function modules to be processed by System Administration

Transaction SM13 (in System Admin) shows transactions with pending processes. A double-click takes you to the function module(s) for an individual transaction.

How V3 works...

User Transaction

Save submits function modules to be processed by System Administration

V1 Postings are carried out synchronous. They are tied directly to the document posting.

How V3 works...

User Transaction

Save submits function modules to be processed by System Administration

V2 Postings are carried out asynchronous. They are similar to synchronous, but different in that their processing is treated as a secondary step to the document Save.

How V3 works...

User Transaction

Save submits function modules to be processed by System Administration

V3 postings are left in an Init status. These modules execute similar to V2 postings, but wait until a unique trigger -- rather than running immediately.

What enables V3 for a Function Module?

A function module is flagged as a V3 process in its Processing Type. This is seen in transaction SE37, in the Attributes tab.

So how are V3 updates triggered?


Updates are primarily triggered by SAP standard program, RSM13005. Its parameters include the function module to be updated (i.e. MCEX_UPDATE_12). V3 triggers for the Logistics Extractors (executed through the cockpit) submit this program with unique parameters for each application.

What happens after a V3s triggered?


Data is passed to Centralized Delta Management. This can be reviewed using transaction RSA7. A double-click on a datasource shows the documents pending extraction.

Accessing the Customizing Cockpit


The Customizing Cockpit is used to define the extract structure, generate the datasource, and activate updates. Can be accessed via the BW Implementation Guide (as seen), or directly via transaction LBWE.
