RSA1 GROUPING MODE OF BW OBJECTS IN TRANSPORTS:
Many of them don’t know what exactly the RSA1 Grouping means.
Without thorough knowledge we can’t do anything perfectly.
I had elaborated the topic to make you understand the concept in depth.
Concept is below:
We often develop objects in SAP. Like InfoObjetcs, InfoCubes, Queries, WebTemplates, TransformationRules, InfoSources etc.
But where to develop the objects?
In Development Box or in Production Box?
We develop objects in Development Box because; it’s highly risky to develop objects in Production Box as:
· We can lose the data,
· And the data flow changes also.
After developing the objects in Development Box, then we transfer to Production Box
I.e. in SAP Terminology it’s simply Transporting.
The quality of data which is transported will affect the activation process and gives errors.
The dependencies of the objects are mapped by Grouping Mode by which the objects are collected.
SO BELOW ARE THE 5 GROUPING METHODS:
Here the mandatory point to be noted is that, data will be collected from DEV BOX and collected to PRO BOX.
· Only necessary objects
· In data flow before
· In data flow after
· In data flow before and after
· Save for system copy
ONLY NECESSARY OBJECTS (DEFAULT OPTION):
If we select only necessary objects, only the necessary or related objects are selected and transported.
IN DATA FLOW BEFORE:
If you select this option, InfoCube, TransformationRules & InfoSources are collected and transported.
IN DATA FLOW AFTER:
If you select this option, Queries and WebTemplates are collected and transported.
IN DATA FLOW BEFORE AND AFTER:
If you select this option, InfoCube, TransformationRules & InfoSources, Queries and WebTemplates are collected and transported.
SAVE FOR SYSTEM COPY:
If you choose this option, it’s mainly used for copying or renaming the SourceSystem, i.e. recreation of objects for SAP DEV & SAP PRO systems are avoided. And all the objects are SourceSystem dependent DataSources are collected in a change/TransportRequest.
The main logic to understand is that, by selection save for system copy helps saving the mapping between the objects & SourceSystem is not deleted after the request is applied or imported.
GROUPING MODE CONCEPT IN DEPTH:
(All the figures for illustration purpose only)
Here in the above diagram Figure 1, you can see, I had mapped the newly developed objects to the grouping mode, shown graphically. In this we can see newly developed objects such as InfoObjetcs, InfoCubes, Queries, WebTemplates, TransformationRules, and InfoSources are mapped to the corresponding Grouping Modes.
MAPPING LOOKS LIKE THIS IN ABOVE ILLUSTRATION:
In Data Flow Before mapped to InfoCubes, TransformationRules & InfoSources.
In Data Flow After mapped to Queries & WebTemplates.
In Data Flow Before and Afterwards mapped to InfoCubes, TransformationRules, InfoSources, Queries and WebTemplates.
So see all the corresponding mappings.
In Figure2 above we can see the screen shots in depth, which I had mapped the Grouping mode.
Actually this is the DataFlow of SAP BW and SAP BI. Here if you see, you can easily understand the whole concept about what we do in the In Data Flow Before & In Data Flow Afterwards.
In the collection mode there are 2 options
One is default which is Collect Automatic ally
And second is Start Manual Connection
Thanks for reading!
Correct me if there are any mistakes.
