PI/XI: Generating configuration from Process Models – EhP1 for PI 7.1 (7.11)

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:

1. How to model and design enterprise services in ESR710

2. Enterprise SOA Experience Workshop – Module 4.1: Modeling Interfaces In The Enterprise Services Repository (ESR)


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.

  • At least now the ProComp becomes more useful than to be just used for documentation purposes 🙂

    We’re on 7.10 & I was wondering where the ProComp models were heading to…Thanks for providing some insight!

    • hi Trevor,

      >>>We’re on 7.10 & I was wondering where the ProComp models were heading to…Thanks for providing some insight!

      that was the idea of the blog as this new
      function is not described in a lot of places
      and many people are not familiar with it yet

  • Hi Michal,
    thanks for this blog. I am just wondering whether this process components introduced by this new feature do replace the business systems we used until now?
    If this is the case how will this affect the SLD objects we used until now, since there is no need to create business systems and assign SWCV to it, anymore?


  • It should be noted that ccBPM is not supported by PIMs yet during the design phase. Kindly refer to the Process Integration Handbook for more details.


  • Hi Michal,

    I have tried this a couple of times now but it only seems to generate sync scenarios… is there a way to generate asynch scenarios??

  • Hello, Michal!

    We use PI 7.11 and try to use Procomp models instead of Process Integration Scenarios but I can not assign IDOC as an “Operation Assignement” and/or “Message type Assignement” in ProComp interaction model.

    Is it possible?
