What do you do when your InfoPackage selection parameters change over time, are dependent on third-party statuses, or are required for delta management? You have standard and non-standard data selection functionalities to deal with these scenarios. We walk you through the process for using them.

 

InfoPackages are DataSource-specific tools used to determine how, when, and which data to extract from a source system. You are probably familiar with the common InfoPackage selection parameters, but did you know that many standard and non-standard data selection functionalities are available to help you transform InfoPackages into powerful smart extraction tools?

This is helpful when your selection parameters change over time, are dependent of third-party statuses, or are required for delta management. To explore these functionalities with you, let’s use the standard R/3 DataSource 2LIS_11_VAITM (Sales Order Item Data) as an example.
