The following table gives an overview of the DataSource properties that are relevant for transport, BI Content delivery, and BI Content activation.


Degree of dependency

Indirectly dependent

Type of dependency

Dependency in object key

Key technology


Active Object

Transport object


Object key

DTP name

Source system reference in data part

Field SRCTLOGO in primary table: Reference to DataSource key

Reference to shadow object

Field DTP_ORIGINAL in primary table

Primary table


Import version


Object versions in primary table

A | M | T | Pseudo D | Shadow

Shadow Object

Transport object for delivery


Object key

DTP name

BI Content version reference in data part

Field SRCTLOGO in primary table: Reference to DataSource key

Identification for shadow version

Field DTP_ORIGINAL in primary table is empty and object version is D

Primary table


Pseudo D version

SAP systems: Is created by replicating the corresponding DataSource or by replicating the source system

Non-SAP systems: Is created by activating the source system

Alternatively: Is created by executing the function module RS_DTPD_AFTER_IMPORT


Creating Data Transfer Processes

Special Features

When the shadow object is created, the system makes sure that there is only one shadow object for each combination of source, target and transfer method (full/delta). When developing BI Content you should therefore make sure that you do not crate multiple data transfer processes with the same transfer method because these overlap in the delivery.
