 Load Object Lists


Before you can make a comparison between an application component (e.g. SAP MDM) and an SAP R/3, you must give the Customizing Scout the list of customizing objects to be synchronized in your system landscape. These object lists are delivered with some application components. If you download the object lists from the application component into the SAP Solution Manager system in which the Customizing Scout is running, it can access the object lists.

For further information about components for which piece lists are delivered, see Synchronization Object .


You have satisfied the prerequisites under Customizing Scout , in particular, you have created a system landscape. You also need the following authorizations to load object lists:

  • activity (ACTVT) 02 for authorization object s_cd_sync

  • the authorization fields sysdlvunit , project_id and scdtsysrol are not checked, so you only need authorization for a project, a system category (e.g. development system, production system) and an application component.

    Note Note

    The authorizations are also in the predefined roles in the SAP Solution Manager. You can also use the above authorizations.

    End of the note.
