Procedure documentation Creating the ALE Distribution Model  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

Use

The ALE distribution model defines which applications in your distributed systems communicate with each other and which types of data are distributed. You require a separate ALE distribution model for a Central User Administration (CUA).

In the central system, you define the structure of your Central User Administration in the model view, which you then distribute to the child systems.

Two types of data are distributed in the ALE distribution model of the CUA to be defined:

        User master data (including assigned roles and profiles)

        Company addresses

You require two methods in the distribution model to distribute user data and company addresses. These methods are realized using BAPIs of the business objects USER and UserCompany with the method clone.

Prerequisites

You have defined the logical systems and RFC connections for ALE distribution.
