Mapping and mapping tasks using BAPI/RFC functions overview

You can generate a BAPI/RFC mapplet in Data Integration. You can then configure a mapping with the mapplet to manage data in SAP systems.
For example, to update sales order data in SAP, generate a BAPI/RFC mapplet from the BAPI_SALESORDER_CHANGE function and configure a mapping using the mapplet.
You can configure a mapping with a BAPI/RFC mapplet to pass input data to BAPI/RFC function input parameters.
To access the BAPI/RFC functionality through Data Integration, perform the following tasks:
  1. 1. Generate a BAPI/RFC mapplet in Data Integration.
  2. 2. Configure a mapping using the generated BAPI/RFC mapplet. Map the Integration ID field and other inputs and outputs. Save and run the mapping or create a mapping task using this mapping.
