2. Distribution of business partner records
You can use this feature to distribute business partner records (along with customer attributes) from SAP Cloud Platform to multiple consuming applications (leading and non-leading systems). SAP Cloud Platform Master Data for business partners has integrated with orchestration service to enable this feature.
Note: Leading system is a single source of truth for all your business partner records (SAP S/4HANA or MDG system) and data validation. Consuming application is any on-premise or cloud application (SAP or non-SAP) that wants to consume business partner data. Following are the apps available once you subscribe to the distribution service.
The Manage Distribution Model app enables you to define and modify the distribution model, which includes information like business object type, activation status, recurrence and filtering. With filtering, you can specify which master data will be distributed and determine the source and the target as well as at what point in time the model will be executed.
The Manage Object Type Owners app allows you to define the object type owner. During the creation of new master data, the Manage Object Type Owners application will be requested whether there is an object type owner existing, if so, whether it can be enriched by additional information, or, in case of master data change activities, whether the planned change is allowed to be executed. Object Type Owners refers to the leading system in SAP Cloud Platform Master Data for business partners.
The Display Distribution Status app enables you to monitor the distribution status. An object receives a status as soon as its distribution is initiated. The status describes when an object was sent as well as the current state of distribution. You can also display the business logs for a specific business partner distribution run.
3. Key mapping distribution service
You can use this feature to distribute business partner key mapping information from SAP Cloud Platform to multiple consuming applications such as SAP S/4HANA or SAP Master Data Governance. You can use this feature via the Manage Distribution Model app.
