 Activation and Deactivation of Integration Models


The activation of integration models results in an initial transfer. If you work with SAP APO, the online transfer of transaction data is released. As standard, the integration models to be activated are compared with the integration models that are already active. In this way, the transfer restricts itself to differences, in other words, only data for filter objects that are not contained in an active integration model is transferred.

Note Note

To retransfer all data records, you have to deactivate and then reactivate all active integration models.

End of the note.

You can generate multiple integration models. However, only one version can be activated for each model. You can activate and deactivate several integration models simultaneously.

Integration models must remain active to enable online transfer.


To activate an integration model, you first have to generate it using the report Create Integration Model (RIMODGEN).

For more information, see Generating Integration Models .


For SAP R/3 3.1I - 4.5B, open the CIF area menu (transaction CIF). Choose Start of the navigation path Integration Model Next navigation step Activate End of the navigation path .

As of SAP R/3 4.6B, choose Start of the navigation path Logistics Next navigation step Central Functions Next navigation step Supply Chain Planning Interface Next navigation step Core Interface Advanced Planner and Optimizer Next navigation step Integration Model Next navigation step Activate End of the navigation path .

You can also call this report (RIMODACT) using transaction CFM2.

The Activate or Deactivate Integration Model screen appears.

Use the entry fields listed below to select the integration model to be activated:

  • Model

  • Logical system

  • APO application

    Note Note

    If you do not make an entry for the model, Logical System, and/or for APO Application and the report is started, the system automatically includes all integration models with the same name in the list of results (version creation).

    End of the note.
  • For more information about the Log Deactivated Material Masters indicator, see below.

  • For more information about the Parallelized Transfer screen section, see Parallelized Initial Data Transfer .


The selection screen displays the available integration models for the model name you have specified.

Versions : If several integration models exist with the same name, they are displayed in chronological order (according to date and time). They may also be assigned to different logical systems (target systems) and APO applications.

You can activate the required model by double-clicking it or by using the Active/Inactive pushbutton. An OK icon displayed to the left of the model generation date and time shows that the integration model has been activated.

If you wish to deactivate the integration model, repeat the above procedure and ensure that the OK icon is no longer displayed.

Choose the Start pushbutton to begin the data transfer. The data is now transferred in the background.

You can use the Check pushbutton to perform a consistency check on the resulting status of the integration model. All active models are tested, including those models scheduled for activation, but not including those models scheduled for deactivation (for more information, see Consistency Check ).


Deactivating an integration model does not lead to the deactivation or deletion of the corresponding objects in the SCM system.

An exception to this is the material master: If you set the Log Deactivated Material Masters indicator, the system logs all material masters that you deactivate in the ERP system. For more information, see Logging Deactivated Material Master Data .

Caution Caution

Some object types refer to filter objects of a different object type. For example, operations are only transferred to SAP APO if they belong to a routing for which the work center is contained in an active integration model for resources. If you deactivate the integration model for work centers, these work centers will not have any operations once a new transfer of production process models takes place. This is also true for operations of production and process orders.

End of the caution.
