Update Mode #

Full update:
Extracts the data in full mode

Note: The Delta update option is ready for input only if the ODP provider in the SAP source system supports delta updates.

Delta update:
Runs a delta initialization, if no delta initialization is available for selected subscriber. Runs a delta update, if there is a delta initialization for the selected subscriber.

  • On delta initialization
    Checking the Extract data checkbox, allows extracting data when running a delta initialization. Leaving the checkbox unchecked runs a delta initialization without extracting data.
  • Auto-sync subscription
    Allows deletion of the existing subscription and creates a new subscription, if required. Each extraction has an internal ID, which is part of the subscriber. If you change the filter of an extraction after the delta initialization, the Auto-sync subscription option automatically deletes the existing subscription and creates a new one. A subscription is deleted, if the error message “Illegal change in selection parameters” returns from the SAP system.

Delta recovery:
Re-runs the last delta update
