Configuring ALE


Home »ALE »Configuring ALE


The essential entities involved in the ALE framework have been discussed above. We will now proceed with the configuration methodology for ALE implementation. The configuration is a multi-step approach. The steps can be categorized as follows (as depicted in figure 5):




Figure 5: MULTI-PHASE ALE CONFIGURATION

3.1 Understand and verify the need of business processes

The need of implementing ALE must be clear to you. For that you need to have all the details of the business requirements. These requirements will facilitate the implementation process and also ensuring its success.

3.2 Configure SAP user administration module (BASIS)

This step involves BASIS configuration of SAP system. The concept of the Logical System described above is applicable here. BASIS administration involves creation of logical systems (LS) for every prospective ALE-enabled client, followed by linking prospective clients to the Logical System using the respective servers.

Once the Logical Systems have been created, you create background users on the prospective clients – to be used by ALE. After this, choose Tools > Administration > Administration > Network > RFC destinations or enter transaction code SM59 to create RFC (Remote Function Call) destination for each client.

As a final step, create partner profiles for the sending system. A partner profile is an identifier for the sending system that is used for communicating messages. You will be using LS as it is used for ALE communications. Every partner profile used for ALE must be based on existing LS (created above).

3.3 ALE Functional Configuring in SAP

This configuration step allows the installation of core ALE features on which data transfer activity will be based. You need to create a Customer Distribution Model (CDM) first. The Customer Distribution Model acts as a repository of data that decides the flow of message types to Logical Systems (LS). There can be one to many messages flow to a Logical System and it can also happen vice-versa. You also need to enforce a selection criterion on the message (type) flowing to a Logical System. This is achieved by adding appropriate message types and filters to the CDM.

Now that the path of the message flows have been set, we can generate outbound partner profiles (similarly as we done for inbound profiles in step 2). Finally, you can distribute the CDM to the receiving systems followed by generating inbound partner profiles on each of the clients.

3.4 Testing and Implementing the ALE Configuration

After completing the setup of the ALE environment it needs to be thoroughly checked and tested with real time business processes and situations. The performance should be measured with varying degree of business transaction volumes. It is advisable to include negative and ‘unusual’ test scenarios as well.

Once testing is completed it can be implemented once it is signed off with the respective business owners.
