IDX2 and EDI_DC40
There is one IDoc imported in "imported objects" of one software component in IR. The IDoc metadata also has been imported in IDX2. However the nodes "IDOC" (with the attribute 'BEGIN') and "EDI_DC40" seen in IR are not visible when I check the metadata details in IDX2. The remaining IDoc nodes and their children are present at both places.
Is this expected or something is missing ?

It is normal behavior.. You can only view the basic structure/segment of the IDoc in IDX2.
The EDI_DC40 segment is a generic segment that is attached to every IDoc type created and hence it is not added as a part of the metadata(as in known implicitly).
However it may be required to change/map any values to the EDI_DC40 segment fields and so it is made visible in the IR to be used by the mapping program.
Hope this clarifys why this segement is included in IR and excluded in IDX2.
