5 Testing and Troubleshooting

After you deploy the connector, you must test it to ensure that it functions as expected. This chapter discusses the following topics related to connector testing:

5.1 Running Test Cases

When you run the PFAL transaction on the target system, you can specify the number or range of employee records for which you want to generate IDocs. You can use this feature to create the flat file for a minimum number of records and then perform the rest of the full reconciliation procedure.
