Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Data Builder and click on "New Replication Flow" under Flows
  2. Select Source Connection
  3. Select Source Container
  4. Click on ODP_SAI - ODP Context:SAPI
  5. Add Source Objects
  6. Newly opened dialogue does not show any ODP SAPI data sources


If there are no error messages displayed when following the steps mentioned above, the issue should be related to the configuration in the source system. Here are the troubleshooting steps on source system side:

  1. Check whether Function Module RODPS_REPL_ODP_GET_LIST can display your data source.
    I_CONTEXT                          <SAPI>
    I_SEARCH_PATTERN             <search patten>

  2. If the function module in SE37 cannot display ODP SAPI data source(s), follow the steps below:
    1. Check the table ROOSOURCE in SE16, if the data source is active.
    2. Check the table ROOSATTR in SE16, if the data source is exposed for ODP Extraction.
    3. If it is not exposed, execute the program BS_ANALY_DS_RELEASE_ODP as mentioned in KBA 2232584.
    4. Execute RODPS_REPL_TEST simulate delta extraction as mentioned in KBA 3366127 and check if there are any issues.
    5. If the problem still exists, after following the above steps, make sure that the coding correction from the collective note 2890171 are implemented.
