3135533 - PTP Time Data Replication: Switching the Replication Target System


When using point-to-point replication, it is necessary to set up the Replication Target System in Employee Central. This object identifies the payroll system in Employee Central. The payroll system may be an Employee Central Payroll system or an on-premise SAP ERP HCM system. Note that multiple payroll systems may be connected to one EC system, for example, because a customer keeps payroll data separate for employees of different countries. Often the convention is used to name the Replication Target System identically to the logical system of the payroll system. However, it is not technically required to follow this naming convention.

In point-to-point time data replication, customers then create Data Replication Configuration in Employee Central. This configuration determines the conditions under which Data Replication Proxies must be created. The configuration is set up per Replication Target System. When proxies get created, these then also contain the Replication Target System.

Now, it may happen that customers have to switch the payroll system, which entails also using a new Replication Target System. This KBA describes what needs to be considered with regards to point-to-point time data replication when switching the payroll system.

In the case of an EC Payroll system, the point-to-point master data replication will most likely be used in parallel to the point-to-point time data replication. For that reason, one also needs to consider corresponding adjustments for point-to-point master data replication. The KBA 3135532 considers the switch of the EC Payroll system with regards to point-to-point master data replication.
