General about plugins

In this article:

Plugins are placed on the left side and they are divided into groups.

There are 4 main groups:

  • Data Source - at least one needs to be added to start the migration
  • SAP Targets - contains such plugins as Change Master, Document info Record, Material BOM, Any SAP Function Module and others. More info could be found at Plugins.
  • Non-SAP Target - contains such plugins as Custom Python Script, Converters, Excel Export and etc. More info could be found in Plugins.
  • Others - contains all other custom plugins

Tip

Plugins could be filtered with the group filters on the right. By default All plugins are shown.
