Changing attachment name or description of PI payload

As for one of my requirement, i had to rename the attachment payload name and description of the file(zip/jpeg/pdf etc..) which written in manifest file. I’m sure there is standart classes to make this happen such as PayloadSwapBean. If you are familiar of creating custom adapter module this can be done in this way as well.

Developer’s who are not familiar of creating custom adapter module can follow this blog : How to create SAP PI adapter modules in EJB 3.0


Changing the name which “attachment-1” to as desired name


Manifest log file contains name and description


Here is a piece of code to apply,

public ModuleData process(ModuleContext mc, ModuleData md) throws ModuleException {
  // TODO Auto-generated method stub
  AuditAccess audit = null;
  try {
  audit = PublicAPIAccessFactory.getPublicAPIAccess().getAuditAccess();
  } catch (MessagingException e2) {
  // TODO Auto-generated catch block
  Message message = (Message) md.getPrincipalData();
  key = new MessageKey(message.getMessageId(), message.getMessageDirection());
  payloadValue = mc.getContextData("payloadname");
  Payload attachment = message.getAttachment(payloadValue);
  //audit.addAuditLogEntry(key, AuditLogStatus.SUCCESS, "Attachment ->"+attachment.getInputStream());
  try {
  }catch (InvalidParamException e) {
  // TODO Auto-generated catch block
  audit.addAuditLogEntry(key, AuditLogStatus.ERROR, "InvalidParamException ->"+e.toString());
  return md;
