H,

 

Thanks for the tip, appreciate it. Your article definitely helped me to understand the core concepts.
I'm most excited about the details your article touch based! I assume it doesn't come out of the box, it sounds like you are saying we'd need to write in the handlers ourselves.
Is there any other articles you would recommend to understand this better?

 

In the HANA migration guide, it is stated to run some consistency checks in FICO (see verbiage below).

I have run these, but I really don't know what I'm looking for - are we running just to make sure they run, running to validate numbers on the reports? Thoughts & guidance are appreciated. Thank you!

3.8 FI/CO: Performing Additional Consistency Checks

To ensure that the source system is consistent, user of Financial Accounting (FI) and Controlling (CO) need to perform some preparatory activities, among others additional consistency checks.

3.2 Product-Specific Preparations of the System Copy Guide, which is mentioned in Further Documentation [page 6].Caution Make sure that no customer data is changed in the meantime. Proceed as follows:

Procedure

1. FI: Run job SAPF190 to perform an additional consistency check. Choose AccountingFinancial AccountingGeneral ledgerPeriodic ProcessingClosingCheck/count. Then choose for○ classic FI: Reconciliation○ new general ledger: Reconciliation (New)

2. FI: You can further check consistency by running the jobs listed below:

○ RFUMSV00 (tax on sales/purchases)

○ RAGITT01 (asset history sheet)

○ RAZUGA01 (asset acquisitions)

○ RAABGA01 (fixed asset retirements)

3. CO: Run the report group 1SIP

 




Appreciate your effort for making such useful blogs and helping the community.  

 

Thanks a heaps,

Irene Hynes

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
