GDS Outbound Process – Item Register and Publish in 1Sync

GDS Outbound Process

This blog explains about the GDS outbound process/steps involved in GDS Item registration and publishing in 1WorldSync.


1WorldSync is the Product information network and data pool solutions provider, certified within GS1 Global Data Synchronization Network(GDSN).It supports GS1 Standards, the global standards for identifying, capturing, and sharing product information.




  1. When a trade item is created, changed, or published by a user GDS CORE performs a validation and retrieves all the data for the item if it meets the criteria for export
  2. GDS CORE then passes on the data to the JPR layer for outbound processing
  3. The JPR layer then sends the message to PI using a JAVA proxy call
  4. PI transforms the data from an MT_TradeltemExport message to a CatalogueRequest
  5. The CatalogueRequest message is sent to the 1 sync data pool server via AS2 adapter.

Points to Remind

  • In SAP PI standard SAP GDS Content is being used, PI GDS outbound mapping is further customized based on business requirements.
  • 1World Sync xml guide has to be referred for mapping purpose to link the correct attributes – attr,attrmany, attrgroupmany etc…
  • In case of incorrect mapping the item has been rejected in 1World Sync and returns a acknowledgement message with “Invalid XML Message”.
  • Message can be grouped together with specific to Target market and IPGLN (Information provider GLN).
  • 1 World Sync will provide Unique user id for each Target market.
  • User id has to be maintained in SAP GDS Parties table .

In the next blog we will explain about the Data pool response from 1 sync – GDS Process – DataPool Response from 1SYNC

      How to validate/register the items from SAP GDS to other data pool such as ECCnet? AS2 is used for 1Sync, is that the same adapter used for 1WorldSync? what is used to register in ECCnet?

      Hello Hemal

      we can follow the same process to register the items in ECCNET (GS1 canada) by using AS2 adapter.

      !sync and 1worldsync are same.

      Thanks Ramkumar. I have few more questions, appreciate if you can answer

      1) Can GDS access the data from SAP Recipe Development module? What are the customization required, if any?

      2) What controls are available in GDS to control the updates from source systems to GDS and from GDS to 1WorldSync?

      3) Can 1WorldSync accept message from SAP GDS without any customization?
