Advantages and Disadvantages of IDOCs

By Roshini


  • The target system need not be always online. The IDOC would be created and would send the IDOC once the target system is available (tRFC concept)
  • No additional programming required. Configuration is the only one need to be set up.


  • Receipt/Processing on the target system need not be immediate
  • When no standard IDOC is available, then it is very hard to create a custom IDOC when compared to creating a standard BAPI
  • Unless ALE is used, it is difficult to trace if the IDOC has actually reached the target system.
