 SAP Business ByDesign


After 2108 veriosn,the button "Master Data Synchronization" has removed from the view "invoice scanning". instead  its visible under "application and user management"work center.


Refer the screenshot attached to this KBA as to where you can see this option under Application user management.

If you don't find it then follow belwo steps :

  • Go to application user management WOC
  • Go to Business users view
  • Select the user
  • Click on Action  button
  • Choose Access rights
  • Go to work center access  tab
  • Check mark "master data  synchonization--CENTRALMASTERDATASYNC_WCVIEW"

Note:Synchronization is happening automatically after 2108 version,  Thus button is moved from scanning screen cause you don't have the need to use it frequently.

Every day job will run in the night in CET time mostly to do the synchronization, however if you want to forcibly do the synchronization immediately, then you have to go to application user management work center and do the synchronization.
