RequirementRead Part I – ISA and GS segment values – Value mapping v/s Predefined TPM UDFs – I

Predefined UDFs approach

Receiver Partner Conversion

Template – SAP Partner Conversion

SAP Partner RCV_001 has a corresponding value TestTP1 for Legacy Partner


Functional Profile – SAP Partner Conversion profile has the above template attached


Different values for test and production environment can be maintained here


  – RCVPRN has value RCV_001, this is passed as the second input and functional profile name as the first input to getFunctionalProfileProperty.

  – Output is TestTP1 ( as maintained in the TPM template)


Receiver ID Qualifier

Template – Sender Receiver ID qualifiers


Functional profile -Qualifiers- value for TestTP1 – 01 in production and test


The converted partner is used in another getFunctionalProfileProperty. to get the qualifier value


Element, sub-element, segment separators

Template – EDI Separator


Functional Profile EDI Separators – EDI separator template attached



Create the partners used in above templates (TP2 and TestTP1 )



Identities – ID- TP2 , Qualifier – 01


Messages – ANSI X12 860 004010 SAP


Add EDI Separators in the functional profiles tab of TP2; Save TP2 ; will add agreements in the latter part




Identities – ID- TestTP1, qualifier – 01





Test agreement – Outbound; fill below parameters


test agreement is created in between TP2 and TestTP1


Retrieving separators in mapping

Use the following input parameters in getAgreementID – internally generated ID will be returned (best match)


The agreement ID is mapped to getFunctionalProfileName which returns the name of the functional profile (EDI Separators)


Function profile name is used to retrieve the value for functional property key ele.sep (mapped to element separator)


Similarly, map other separator values


Obtain Sender, Receiver qualifiers as below


Complete Mapping


Usage Indicator- getSystemEnvironment returns the value of environment configured in TPM (Test/Production)


TPM Data can be exported and imported across environments




Monitoring – Based on TPM User defined search criteria (header values like Sender ID, Receiver ID etc. filters can be added.

Suggestions to optimize the design are welcome 🙂 !!!

    Very nicely explained Pooja..

    Like we have getAgreement , do we have a function where you provide the agreement name/agreement ID and sender ID, Receiver ID, qualifiers etc are returned?

      Thanks Tarun,

      As per my knowledge we don’t have such a function , however we have getIdentity

      which returns the required identity based on source partner ID and Qualifier code.

      Sarath Sasi

      Please add to this , if you have come across a UDF which is the reverse of getAgrreementID

    Hi Pooja,

    Nice one. Your blog series in the B2B domain is really helpful.

    I have a question regarding these UDF that access TPM profile. How do they access the TPM content. Is there any java API that SAP has provided to access TPM content.

    We wish to access the TPM content from Java Mapping. Is that possible.

    Hi Pooja,

    Thanks for the blog.

    Is there any generic rule to configure modules in adapters? Like EDI search module should be used only at EDI separator receiver adapter.. etc. We want to understand the usage of modules in both inbound and outbound scenarios.
