It is important to configure staging and logging for SAP PI/PO Integrated Configurations (ICOs) / iFlows, as it defines, which messages (sender or receiver) are visible in the monitoring and also improves error analysis to add an additional payload (before/after mapping). Please find our recommendation / Best Practice here.
It should be applied for all your interfaces. However, it is not easy to go through all iFlows/ICOs and check them one by one to see if the settings have been applied. SAP also does not recommend to change the global settings, so best is to have them in an Excel document and identify the wrongly configured ones.
With this update of WHINT Interface Catalog for SAP PI/PO you can also see the staging & logging configuration in the Excel overview document.
