Master Data Management

Set Posting Options at the Category Level

By default, an Integrate process that posts MDM requests uses the posting method Standard SAP Posting using the General job queue for request processing.

NOTE: Requests that are posted using Group Post and AutoPost use the job queue set at this level. Refer to Post a Request and Auto Post a Request for more information.

A user can update the posting method and job queue and set posting options for the Integrate process used to post requests at the Category level. These options are then used by default for all scenarios in the category added after the posting options are updated.

Some of these options can be overridden at the scenario level and viewed, but not updated, at the request level. Refer to Update Posting Options at the Scenario Level for more information.

Refer to BDC Post Methods and Settings on the Advanced tab for more information about posting methods.
