Enable background extraction

Background processing means that SAP uses a background process to extract data instead of a dialog connection. This limits the possibility of time out issues for large objects such as PersonBusinessAddressServices.

Background extraction requires DEE 4.5 to be installed on the SAP system. The IRC Connection user should be assigned the background roles in SAP.

By default, certain objects are pre-configured for background extraction. To enable extraction for other objects, users need to modify the SAPAIConfig.xml file as :

  1. Go to [InstallPath]\Adapters\TMonitor\ProcessModules\SAPAI.
  2. Open the SAPAIConfig.xml file
  3. Search for the node <PMDEEHostConfig> and insert these nodes.
