Context in SAP PI

If you are new to SAP PI, there is a great chance that you get confused, the moment you get to hear the word “context”. It is one of the most confusing topics for almost all new joiners to SAP PI. In this document, we’ve made an attempt to simplify it to the every possible extent and have concentrated only on this topic and tried to give exhaustive examples, so that it leaves the readers with a mind free of doubt.

By default, Friend1 is under “Friends” context.

Changing the context to Personal Details (next parent level – (1st level above the default level).

Friend1 nodes under different “Friends” context are grouped under one “Personal Details” context.
