In this article I’d like to present a new way of generating Integration Directory configuration
with the use of process models created in ESR. As of PI 7.11 (EhP1 for PI 7.10) we can now
generate ID configuration in a very similar way we used to do with Process Integration Scenarios.
I will not be describing how to generate a procomp model as this approach was already shown in
many articles like:
The only think I’d like to stress out is that you need to remember
that in order to use objects from other SWVCs inside your model you need
to remember about the dependencies (I saw a few questions about that on PI forum).
So it’s exactly the same as using the Process Integration Scenarios.
Once you finish designing your Procomp Intearcation model in ESR you can open ID and
and select Tools – Apply model from ES Repository but this time instead of selecting
Process Integration Scenarios use SAP Process component Interaction model (Propcomp from ESR)
and select your model.
Your model will be visible as a configuration scenario so you need to assign the name for that too.
The next step is also similar – you just need to assign Business Systems to the Process Components
and connections and you can generate the scenario.
Once you generate the model you will see that new Process Components were generated in ID
and ech of them has a Business System assigned to it.
The big difference between Process Integration Scenarios and Process component Interaction model
you will see in the routing objects – each of them will contain Process Components as a party name.
The aim of this blog was just to introduce the new functionality (which is generation of those scenarios)
as it was not possible to do it in 7.10 (even though we could create ProComp models in ESR).
If you want to find out mode about ProComp modelling I’d advice to have a look at many articles
from sdn that described it.
