3 Configuration
SAP Best Practices for High Tech GTS was set up in two independent clients: One
client represents in this case the feeder system for Master Data and Sales Order
Processing, the other client represents the SAP Global Trade Services system where
Compliance Management is processed.
All steps described in this configuration guide have to be performed in the SAP GTS
system (or client) except for the necessary settings for transferring documents to
GTS and SD settings like creating order type, delivery type, item category etc.

3.1 Prerequisites in SAP R/3


3.1.1

Defining Sales Document Type in SAP R/3

Use
Before you can call the Legal Control Export, Legal Control Import, Sanctioned Party List
Screening services, Transit Procedure Service, or Customs Processing Service, you have to
transfer the document data to SAP Global Trade Services (SAP GTS). You need to specify which
document types of a specific application level you want to transfer from the backend system to
SAP GTS so that the relevant customs documents can be created. We create an own sales
document type for our scenarios.

3.2 System Communication


Prerequisites
The logical system in R/3 is defined and has been asssigned to your client.

3.2.1

Maintaining RFC Destinations for RFC Calls

Use
To enable the communication between two systems or more, you establish a technical connection
between them in this case, a connection between your backend system and SAP Global Trade
Services (SAP GTS). You create a system connection by maintaining Remote Function Call
(RFC) destinations for RFC calls.

Prerequisites
You have created an RFC user in SAP GTS.

SAP AG

Page 10 of 70

SAP Best Practices

H42 Global Trade Services Compliance Mgmnt: Configuration Guide

Procedure
1. Access the activity using the following navigation option:

SAP R/3: GTS Menu

Basic Settings Maintain RFC Destinations for RFC Calls

Transaction Code

/N/SAPSLL/MENU_LEGALR3

...

2. Create a new SAP R/3 connection (connection type 3 , R/3 Connection).


3. Enter the name of the target logical system (in this case SAP GTS) as the name of the RFC
destination.
4. Specify the IP address of SAP GTS.
5. Specify the RFC user, client and password to be used for logging on to SAP GTS with RFC
calls.
6. Use the functions Remote Logon and Test Connections to test the connection.

If the name of your SAP GTS logical system is JDVCLNT100, you need to specify
the RFC destination JDVCLNT100, the connection type 3, the IP address, and the
RFC user USERRFC with the appropriate password in client 100.

3.3 Maintaining RFC Destinations for Method Calls


Use
To define the standard connection for method calls, you assign the Remote Function Call (RFC)
destination you defined in the preceding step for SAP Global Trade Services (SAP GTS) as the
standard Business Application Programming Interface (BAPI) destination for the SAP GTS logical
system.

Procedure
1. Access the activity using the following navigation option:

SAP R/3: GTS Menu

Basic Settings Maintain RFC Destinations for Method Calls

Transaction Code

/N/SAPSLL/MENU_LEGALR3

...

2. Assign the previously defined RFC destination as standard BAPI destination for SAP GTS
logical system.

If your SAP GTS logical system and the RFC destination you defined both have the
value JDVCLNT100, do the following assignments:
Backend System: JDLCLNT900
SAP GTS: JDVCLNT100
Standard RFC Destination for BAPI Calls: JDVCLNT100

SAP AG

Page 11 of 70

SAP Best Practices

H42 Global Trade Services Compliance Mgmnt: Configuration Guide

3.4 Maintaining the ALE Distribution Model


Use
Application Link Enabling (ALE) technology ensures distributed but integrated application
communication. To regulate the data flow between your backend system and SAP Global Trade
Services (SAP GTS), you need to maintain an ALE distribution model. If you need to create a new
distribution model, you assign an object or interface, together with its method, to the logical
systems of both the backend system and SAP GTS.

Procedure
1. Access the activity using the following navigation option:

SAP R/3: GTS Menu

Basic Settings Maintain ALE Distribution Model

Transaction Code

/N/SAPSLL/MENU_LEGALR3

...

2. Choose the Create Model View function to create a new distribution model.
Short text Global Trade Services. Technical name SLL-LEG.
3. Choose the Add BAPI function.
4. Enter the name of your backend system (sender).
5. Enter the name of SAP GTS (recipient).
6. Assign CustomsDocumentIF as the object/interface.
7. Assign SynchronizeIfR3 as the method.
8. Save your entries.

Example
You create a new distribution model called SLL-LEG. Within this distribution model, you assign
the object or interface CustomsDocumentIF, the method SynchronizeIfR3 to the sender system
JDLCLNT900 (backend system) and the recipient system JDVCLNT100 (SAP GTS).

3.5 Activating Change Pointers


Use
Customer master data, vendor master data, and material master data has to be transferred from
the backend system to SAP Global Trade Services (SAP GTS). This master data is uploaded
initially, however, if any changes are made to the master data records in the backend system, this
changes have to be recorded in SAP GTS.
Changes to master data records are written automatically to a change pointer table in the
backend system. However, not all the fields containing changes in the tables are of relevance to
SAP GTS processes. To avoid unnecessary data transfers, you need to select the fields you
specifically require to be included in the change pointer table in your backend system.
Once you activate the ALE change pointers in the backend system, this system automatically
distributes the changed data (customers, vendors, materials).
Reduced message types ensure from a SAP GTS point of view that only the fields relevant to
SAP GTS and changed in the backend system are transferred in a batch job to SAP GTS.

Systems
Use
You assign logical systems that have matching or partly matching characteristics to one logical
system group. These characteristics include the following: identical/matching material numbers,
customer numbers, vendor numbers, company codes, plants and storage locations.

Even if you only want to connect one backend system to SAP GTS, you still have to
define a logical system group for this single backend system.

Prerequisites
You can only group several logical systems into a logical system group if each master data record
is unique across all backend systems.

The material numbers, customer numbers and vendor numbers that you assign
must be unique across all systems.

3.11 Maintaining Time Zones


Use
In SAP Global Trade Services (SAP GTS), the system time zone determines all time-dependent
data, such as sanctioned party list (SPL) master records, customs records, determination data,
and time stamps in documents.
Therefore, when you set up your system, one of the first steps must be checking or selecting the
system time zone.

We strongly recommend not to change the system time zone after entering the
application data, since this will lead to major data inconsistencies.
In this activity, you configure the following settings for the time zones:

System time zone

Standard time zone for users

System time zone


The system time zone is comparable to the time zone of your operating system. It applies to all
clients. If you change the system time zone in one client, the new value is automatically copied to
all other clients.
If you specify the system time zone, the SAP system can calculate the local time from a UTC
time.
Standard time zone for users
Using the standard time zone, you specify the local time zone of a user in a client. However, this
specification is only used if no personal time zone is maintained in the user defaults.
The standard time zone is not changed on a cross-client basis. It can vary from client to client.

If you are logging on to an SAP system for the first time, the system time zone is
determined automatically. However, we recommend to check this value, since a
unique assignment is sometimes not possible.
To activate the time zone function, the system automatically sets the indicator Time
Zone Active.

Prerequisites
You have checked whether the time zone you require exists before configuring your settings in
the system.
Go to the Implementation Guide (IMG) for SAP GTS and choose General Settings Maintain
Time Zones.

SAP AG

Page 18 of 70

SAP Best Practices

Assigning Document Types

Use
When you transfer documents from the backend system, the system maps the document type
from the backend system to the document type in SAP Global Trade Services (SAP GTS). You
can assign these document types either at backend system level or at backend system group
level.
If only one backend system exists, or if several backend systems have different documents, it is
best to assign the document types at backend system level.
If several backend systems have the same document structure, the documents can be assigned
at backend system group level.

Assigning Item Categories

Use
To enable the system to transfer documents from the backend system, you need to assign the
item categories in the backend system to the item categories in SAP Global Trade Services (SAP
GTS).
If only one backend system exists, or if several backend systems have different documents, it is
best to assign the item categories at backend system level.
If several backend systems have the same document structure, the item categories can be
assigned at backend system group level.

3.16.5

Defining Partner Functions

Use
Each customs document contains several partners at header and item level. Each partner has a
specific partner function. You determine the partner function using the partner role transferred
from the backend system. For each partner function, you have to define whether it is an export or
import partner function or whether this partner function can be used both for exports and imports.
The partner functions are defined on the basis of the services that are to be executed. Therefore,
not all partner roles in the backend system need to be mapped as partner functions in SAP
Global Trade Services (SAP GTS).
In a Sales and Distribution (SD) document, several partner roles (such as sold-to-party, ship-toparty and bill-to party) exist as external partners. The document may also include internal
partners such as employees who are not relevant to the services in SAP GTS and, therefore, are
not to be transferred.
