SAP PI CONNECTIVITY ADDON 2.0 and SAP PI SFTP PGP ADDON 1.0 included in the SAP NetWeaver Process Integration standard with 7.50 SP22
Starting with SAP NetWeaver Process Integration 7.5 SP22, SFSF, SFTP, OData adapters and the PGP module become part of the standard shipment – there will be no need to deploy them separately anymore.
Originally, both add-ons were created as release independent. Since beginning of 2021 SAP NetWeaver Process Orchestration 7.5 is the only release in mainstream maintenance, with all other releases being in customer-specific maintenance. This makes the need for release independence obsolete, and we deiced to bring the adapters into the standard. All new features now go to the standard shipment. But the functional patches and of course the security patches will continue to be shipped for the add-ons for another year.
With this step we can now ship correction and new features with each NetWeaver Support Packages.
With the merge with the standard shipment we included the SFTP adapter and the PGP Modul in the existing XIAF (SAP_XIAF*.SCA ) software component. For the OData and SFSF Adapter a new Software Component is introduced – called XIAFCON (SAP_XIAFCON*.SCA). This was necessary because of dependencies to the library. The old Software Components will be removed automatically at the SP Stack Update.
The ESR content of SFSF, SFTP and OData adapters is now located under the SAP_BASIS software component. You must use the content from this software component when creating new channels. But for all running configuration you do not have to change the Software Component in the Channel. If you like to do it – it is also possible without losing any value in the channel configuration.
For more technical information – please look at the online documentation. You will find it in the Adapter Configuration Chapter.
