Managing DataStore ObjectsLocate this document in the navigation structure


You can display technical information about the contents of a DataStore object using the Manage DataStore Object function. Here, you can carry out administrative tasks such as deleting requests or reconstructing the DataStore object.


The DataStore object is active.


1. Select the DataStore object.

The DataStore object is displayed in the top table. You only have to make one selection from several DataStore objects, if you called DataStore object administration from the monitor.

In the top toolbar, choose Contents to display the contents of the table of active data for the DataStore object you have selected. Choose Delete Contents to delete the contents of the DataStore object. You can also display an application log and a process overview.

2. Edit the Contents tab page.

You can display the contents of the table of the newly loaded data (activation queue), the active data (A table) and the change lot table. You can also selectively delete requests from the DataStore object.

More information: DataStore Object Contents

3. Edit the Requests tab page.

This tab page provides information about all requests that have run in the DataStore object. You can also delete requests here or schedule an update.

More information: Requests in DataStore Objects

4. Edit the Reconstruction tab page.

You use this function to fill a DataStore object with requests that have already been loaded into the BW system or another DataStore object. This function is only necessary for DataStore objects that obtained their data from InfoPackages.

More information: Reconstruction of DataStore Objects

5. Optional: Edit the Archiving tab page.

If you have created a data archiving process, you see this additional tab page.

More information: Administration of Data Archiving Processes

6. Optional: Use the automatic further processing.

If you still use a 3.x InfoPackage to load data, you can activate several automatisms to further process the data in the DataStore object. If you use the data transfer process and process chains that we recommend using, you cannot use these automatisms.

We recommend always using process chains.

In the main menu, choose Start of the navigation path Environment Next navigation step Automatic Request Processing End of the navigation path to determine that the system automatically sets the quality status of the data to OK after it has been loaded into the DataStore object. You can also activate and update DataStore data automatically. Here, data that has been given the quality status OK is transferred from the activation queue into the active data table, and the change log is updated. The data is then updated to other InfoProviders.

You can also apply these settings when you create DataStore objects. More information: DataStore Object Settings


Only activate automatic activation and update if you can be sure that these processes do not overlap. See Functional Constraints of Processes.

7. Optional: Deleting data from the change log data.

You can delete data from the Change Log. In the main menu, choose Start of the navigation path Environment Next navigation step Delete Change Log Data End of the navigation path. Proceed as when deleting requests from the PSA.
