SAP Records Management, a standard component of SAP Web Application Server 6.20 and higher, provides users with access to all of their enterprise documents, transactions, workflows, and data, regardless of their module or vendor, via a single view — a record. SAP data by nature is constantly changing, however, which means the record containing your data needs to be updated to reflect these changes. This article shows you how to use event linkage to automatically update records when business events occur in an SAP system (e.g., when records are created, changed, or deleted), freeing you from having to perform such updates manually and enabling you to take full advantage of your SAP Records Management implementation for real time and cost savings.
