Scheduling a Job for Master Data Export

By scheduling a job for master data export, you can set up an automated recurring task that exports the latest version of the master data from your SAP ECC or SAP S/4HANA on-premise and transmits it to the desired SAP Ariba solution. This automation helps ensure that the exported data is always up-to-date and readily available for analysis, reporting, or integration with other systems.

Job scheduler is the standard SAP utility. You can configure one or more scheduled jobs with your requirements based on the frequency of the updates that take place for a particular master data object.

Caution

Before scheduling an export job, ensure that you have configured one or more variants as necessary for the ARBCIG_MASTER_DATA_EXPORT or ARBCIG_BUYER_CATALOG_EXPORT program.

  1. Run transaction code SM36.
