Additional Details

In Central Finance, business mapping is used to map an identifier or code from the source system to the identifier or code in the Central Finance system. To each mapping entity, such as company code or cost center ID, a mapping action, such as Mapping Obligatory, is assigned. This combination of mapping entity and mapping action defines how the mapping information is used during the replication of journal entries from a source system to the Central Finance system.

You can implement the Enhance Standard Mapping Business Add-In (BAdI) once and then use it across all replication scenarios within Central Finance. The BAdI is only called, when the mapping action for a mapping entity is set to Map if Possible or Mapping Obligatory.

Effects on Existing Data

There are also other BAdIs available that you can use to enhance the mapping logic in Central Finance, such as the BAdI: Enhance Standard Processing of Posting Data or the BAdI: Enhance Standard Processing of CO Secondary Posting. If you are already using them, please make sure that the implementation of those BAdIs do not contradict the implementation of this BAdI.
