SAP E-Book


You can execute the import of product tables and listing values to In-Force Business Configurator as an update run.

Note: SAP strongly recommends that you execute the IFBC import first in simulation mode (see Simulate IFBC Import).



You have performed the PSV import (see second pushbutton Execute PSV Import).



  • Backup Copy
If you select this checkbox, the system creates a backup copy of the existing data in In-Force Business Configurator before the IFBC import. This ensures that you do not lose the the existing version of In-Force Business Configurator through the IFBC import.
  • The backup copy does not contain any information about change documents. Its only purpose is to let you view the pre-import state if problems occur.

  • Do not confuse this backup copy with the backup copy of the product tables (see first pushbutton Save Product Tables). With the Save Product Tables function, you create a copy of the msg4 tables.

  • This backup copy is a prerequisite for being able to compare the current content of In-Force Business Configurator with a backup copy (see Compare Product Templates).

  • Transport Request
A transport request is mandatory under the following circumstances:
  • The current client allows for Customizing recordings.

You can view the client settings with transaction SCC4.
  • In-Force Business Configurator is configured in such a way that transport requests are mandatory.

The transport settings for the IFBC import are determined in Customizing for Policy Management under In-Force Business Management → Basis → In-Force Business Configurator → Define Template Type.
You can enter an existing transport request.
You can also specify that the system is to automatically create one or more transport requests on execution of the IFBC import. This is only possible if the client setting allows the creation of a transport and the user is authorized to create a transport request. The automatic creation of a transport request is recommended when you schedule the import as a background job.
  • Problem Class
Here you determine which messages are displayed in the log.
The standard setting is 2 for Important. The system then displays messages of the Important problem class and higher (= Very Important). Less important messages are not recorded, and thus do not appear in the log.
  • You can make a setting to determine that, on the import of listing values, the imported texts are automatically updated (see Update Texts for Listing Values).

Standard Variants


The system imports the product tables and listing values to In-Force Business Configurator and displays a log after the import.
