E-Filing GB: Cannot produce target element /nS0:GovTalkMessage/nS0:Body/nS1:IRenvelope

I had gone through SDN forums when I got the error “Cannot produce target element /nS0:GovTalkMessage/nS0:Body/nS1:IRenvelope:” and got couple of post for the same issue. But they were not solved fully at that time. This blog will explain the steps to identify and solve this problem.


Below image is the exact error message which was taken from trace.



1. First I checked the inbound payload to check whether that fields is getting populated in the source structure. Those fields were present in the payload. 


2. Then I checked the structure in Message Mapping but had no clue, since IRenvelope is a node (mandatory) & I don’t know how to give values there.


3. Then I went for display queue option got more confused because the same kind of nodes had one value .


IRenvelope                       Similar nodes

4. I have opened the  external definition of GTENV in software component SAP HR 7.00, spotted the year mentioned in namespace . It was EOY/08-09/1.



Namespace after importing latest XI content:



 I remembered when I was checking the inbound payload in the sxmb_moni, the namespace had EOY/09-10/1”.  



Inbound Payload:



I felt it may be latest content was not there Or the mapping has been changed  but not sure. Latest contents has been downloaded and imported.

New message has been triggered. But when I tested the interface, was getting a same error. I felt latest content did not work. When I debugged it, I found error was with different field.  So again I went to message mapping (TEST tab) and found, two mandatory fields were missing. Manually added those fields and tested it again. Mapping has been executed successfully . Latest content import solved the problem.


The issue was

  • Mapping has changed for 2009-2010 which was released in the version E-filing content 17.  But we had 16 for this.
  • Also along with this, it also required SAP HR 50 whereas we had component level 42.
