AIF implementation for PI proxies – Part 1(Inbound)

There are lot of documentation available on AIF along with cookbook for developer to understand and implement. But still we get lost on why and what configuuration should actually be useful and in which all scenarios.

In this blog I shall show the actual step by step process on AIF(Application Interface Framework) configuration for Inbound Scenario along with how to code for the same.

In another blog shall provide the steps how to configure the AIF for outbound scenarioas well.


AIF for inbound Interface


Say if there is any interface inbound to S4 as shown in the below screen.

Note : Either SPROXY transaction / ESR browser from SE80 can be used to check the interfaces

Fig 1. Interface Proxy definition

Generate the proxy by clinking on the Generate icon  .  Or by double clicking the interface.

Once generated , the default proxy class , along with the the structures gets automatically created.

A default proxy method method gets created as shown in the fig 2.

Fig 2. Default proxy method generated.

The below code will push the input coming from the PI into the AIF( Application Interface Framework ) structures.

  • Hello

    Thanks for the blog.Can you please update the link for part 2 its not working, I would suggest is to combine part 2 here only else part 1 looks like just left in middle of no where.



    • Thanks Nabheet for your suggestions.

      Actually the complete AIF configuration is divided into 5 parts. Each part having its own significance .

      As putting everything in one page would have made it quite clumsy.

      But the parts of this blog are still not being published by the reviewer. So the link is not working.

      Thanks and regards,
