  • When an object is saved in APO, data is saved to liveCache;
  • After data has been posted, the system will process the event, either immediately or periodically via Change Pointers;
  • The relevant objects are converted from liveCache to the CIF format;
  • At this point, the Target System is determined by checking the Distribution Definitions and Lookup Information.

If the Distribution Definitions are not maintained, system may not determine the correct system to send the data to.
