Mapping the Delete OperationLocate this document in the navigation structure


In this step, you will map the DELETE operation to the Delete BOR method.

The DELETE operation deletes a business entity in the SAP backend system.

Many SAP interfaces do not provide a direct DELETE operation, given the risk of losing potentially critical business data.

When there is the DELETE operation, it is only to mark the object for deletion instead of completely removing the business object. However, for some objects, such as, the USER object, a direct delete function module is available.

  1. From the data source, select the Delete method.

  2. Click Create Mapping.

  3. In Operation Type in the Map Operation window, choose Delete.
