SAP AIF – Simple Inbound Scenario – Part-2

Part 1,SAP AIF – Simple Inbound Scenario- Part-1, we have completed the basic steps for SAP PI , Here we will be dealing with steps involved in  SAP ECC box . Go to SPROXY, generate and activate the Service Interface.

                                              SAP ECC

T-Code SPROXY – Activate the Service interface (SI_AIF_ADD_REQ)


Properties Tab-Click on Provider  class  /wp-content/uploads/2015/08/b_769824.png
Method tab   /wp-content/uploads/2015/08/c_769825.png

Inside the method
Call function


  Depending on business logic we can all multiple AIF function./wp-content/uploads/2015/08/d_769826.png



  Go External view

  Here we need to make note of ABAP NAME  for structure (RAW & SAP).


    Now we will be moving for AIF Customization  .

    Basic Steps –

                                                     SAP  ECC – AIF CUSTOMIZATION

To kick start with the Interface development  we need to create a namespace , this is done  by

  Define Namespace

  New Entries eg. ZAIF_D

  (One Namespace can be associated with multiple interfaces development)


Define Interface –Select the namespace (ZAIF_D), New Entries.

  Note the Provider proxy class name that is generated in SPROXY.


  Raw Data Structure and Record type in raw structure will
  populate automatically.

  Inbound Interface – Raw Data Structureis created during proxy generation, this act as a Source Structure for Inbound Interface.

  Record Type in Raw Structure – is the main component of raw data structure.

  Save all the details. 


Additional interface properties->Specify Interface Engine.

In our case we are dealing with proxy so we need to select the following entries .


Define Structure Mapping – Here fields of the source (Raw) structure are mapped to the fields of
the Destination (SAP Data) Structure.

  • Select the Source Structure.
  • Assign the destination structure
  • .Define the Field mappings.



Define Actions – It wraps the business logic at runtime .At least one function module should be defined.

Select the function double click , New window/session  for Function module editor here we  will be writing business  logic.


Now we will be testing the interface  .
