Process documentationSetting-Up Customizing ID Mapping


This process sets up your systems so that you can define ID mappings and use them to exchange data with an integration server, or with the Customizing Distribution.


  1. Copy the system landscape specified in the System Landscape, into the SAP Solution Manager. Follow the SAP Solution Manager installation guide, and the instructions under Landscape Management.

  2. You connect the integration server to the SAP Solution Managers in your system landscape in which ID mapping is to be performed. Create RFC connections in the system landscape maintenance or the RFC DestinationMaintenance (SM59), for business systems or the integration server

    For further information about connecting the systems for the Customizing ID Mapping Framework, see under Creating a Destination to the Integration Server for Maintaining the Value Mapping Table in the Configuration Guide: SAP Exchange Infrastructure 2.0 under SAP Exchange Infrastructure.

  3. Start the Customizing ID Mapping with the transaction SCIDM_CONFIG.

  4. You can specify other non-ABAP business systems in the Business Systems editing, flag Integration Servers, and create other RFC destinations.

  5. You create ID types with the Customizing ID Type Editor.

  6. You can create global ID types with the Global ID Type Editor.

  7. Create type groups, which create a relationship between customizing ID types, business systems, and an integration server:

    • Business Systems

    • equivalent ID types, which are not harmonized between the business systems

    • integration server, via which the business systems exchange messages

    You can base the type groups on global customizing ID types.

  8. Define ID mappings.

  9. Export the ID mappings into the integration server.


The system can also perform ID mapping in the message conversion in the integration server.
