SAP EM Extractor functions
I am new to SAP EM and trying to configure EM-ECC system for Order-to-Cash scenario.
Can anyone please let me know the exact meaning and use of the following functions:
- Business Object Extractor
- AOT Relevance
- Control Data Extractor
- Info Data Extractor
- Query ID Extractor
- Expected Event Extractor
Also if you can provide any sample test scenario config which i can use for learning purpose, that would be a great help.
Thanks a lot.

Transaction SPRO in your application system should also have some info.
Business Object Extractor
You can use the business object key to link the event handlers that belong to an object in the SAP
application system. This is needed if you want to report actual information back to the SAP
application system or to provide a SAP EM tab page in the relevant application object transaction.
When an application object is created, updated, or deleted a condition or a function determines
whether the object is relevant to the respective visibility process. The function module is
associated with the AOT.
Control Data Extractor
Control parameters are usually selected from the main and master tables. Control parameters are
required to define conditions in SAP EM, or to use the Alert Framework (for example, e-mail
Info Data Extractor
Info parameters are used, for example, for displaying status queries, transferring notifications, or
selecting event handlers in the Web interface. They provide additional useful data.
Query ID Extractor
Obsolete please don't use it in new scenarios
Expected Event ExtractoThe expected event extractors select the milestone information from the application object tables.
