Additional Information

If you send data to external cash desk services using SAP Exchange Infrastructure (XI), the system posts FI-CA documents in individual processes when XI messages are processed. Individual processing uses just one number range and one reconciliation key for the posting. To ensure this, the system sets database locks both on the number range table NRIV and on table DFKKSUMC for the reconciliation keys. This can have a negative effect on performance if parallel processing is used.

If you set the Optimization Active indicator in Customizing:

  • The system assigns a separate number range to each process for the posting of FI-CA documents.

    Posting takes place as before using individual processing.

  • The system posts each process on a separate reconciliation key.

    The system creates as many reconciliation keys as there are processes posting in parallel.
