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.
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
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.
In our case – ZAIF_ASY_ADDR_HNCL_SI_AIF_ADD.
Raw Data Structure and Record type in raw structure will
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 .
