Deal with Abap Proxies in a SAP PI/PO phased migration

In this days probably you should be in a migration SAP PI/PO project to 7.5. Maybe with your customer, you have agreed to just test some integrations to your new version while others are pointed to previous SAP PI/PO version, or do a phased migration by scenarios (for example)

In this cases, you should be able to send (in case you have this kind of integrations) proxy messages through your actual SAP PI/PO and your new system.

The steps to follow are:

  • In backend system tx: sxmb_adm >  Configure Sender/Receiver ID and create a new entry for the interface that you want to send by the non default integration:

  • You should fill the ID, Description, Component, and the message of ESR that you want send by the other integration.
  • After, go to tx: sxmb_admIntegration Engine Configuration and configure a new entry:
    • Category: RUNTIME
    • Parameters: IS_URL
    • Subparameter: <ID of previous Step>
    • Current Value: <SM59 destination for the new integration engine>

And if you go to tx: sxi_monitor and check the trace of one of this messages to new integration engine, you’ll see the message getting the parameter and using the new parameter.

      Hi Xavier,

      perhaps you could extend your post about some SLD prerequisits? The point is that you are connecting one Business System to several PI Servers, perhaps they do not share the same SLD, you need your Software Component, business System in both of them...

      Best regards,

      In this case i'm talking about migrations. The SLDs should have the same  Software Component. Anyway, i'll update it to take it in account.


      Thanks for your reply
