Batch derivation search procedure & strategy types


I'm not sure if this is an unusual situation or if I am just missing something painfully obvious. I'm setting up some proof of concept tests for batch derivation using the best practices configuration guide as a template -

While setting up the config for condition techniques, specifically strategy types & search procedures, there are several references to the standard settings, e.g., 'The procedure BDR001 has already been defined in the standard SAP System.'. The thing is, I can't find any of the standard values anywhere in our systems

Search procedures: BDR001 & BDS001

Strategy types: BDR1 & BDS1

I'm not having much luck finding reference to the standard settings in IMG or internet searching... do these need to be configured somewhere else, or imported from 000 or anything like that?

Just as a relatively unimportant side comment - for some reason, sections 3.4 and 3.5 of the linked configuration guide appear to be exactly the same, with the exception of the title. Hopefully there's nothing too important that was missed because of the duplication




Yes.. 3.4 and 3.5 are identical.  They should have explained in 3.5 a bit more about what the derivation events are and what they do.  But since this seems to be more a best practices guide, I don't think is it going into much detail of the configuration fucntionality.  More like do this, than this, and also this..just a step-wise guide.. not an instructional document.

So yes, those two sections would be almost identical, you basically can't set up 3.4 without also setting up 3.5 and vice-versa.  So someone took a previous document from somewhere and just "filled in" the various sections.

As you you other question, yes.. I would have expected those to be there already.  I can't think of a system I've seen where they weren't there.  So I would look at getting them copied in from 000.
