In the old 3.1 world I used IDocs to do some of this. At my new company, the Basis staff has no experience doing...
this and are resisting. Is it possible to use the replicate BAPI to achieve what I would like to do?
Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
The steps to do this are easy and having your Basis staff say they have no experience is a foul excuse. Being able to set up an IDoc path between systems is a mandatory skill for any basis admin. Given the fact that creating the necessary partner profiles and RFC connection between the logical systems is a fairly easy and quick task to do, you may expect that they read the appropriate documentation or visit the two IDoc/ALE courses if nothing helps.
Here the steps:
1. Create an RFC connection from sender system to receiver system with SM59
2. Go to transaction SALE
2a. Maintain the logical systems in table TBDLS (you can use SM31 or select maintain LS in transaction SALE)
2b. Create an arbitrary new model and attach the message type MATMAS for the path DEV->>QAS (if not done, transport the logical systems changes to the receiver system)
2c. Distribute the new model to QAS
2d. Generate the partner profile in both systems (there is a menu entry) or maintain them with WE20 manually (not recommended unless you know what you are doing).
3. Send the data with transaction BD10
