FI-CA Interface SAP PI 7.1


We have been mostly using our PI 7.1 for XML, IDOC and Soap interfaces. We have now been asked to do an interface between Flat File and an FI-CA Document.

Using SAP Provided structures is a new concept to us. Can someone point me in the direction on how we get the data structure for the FI-CA document? Any maybe a guide on using them?

    Hi Gareth,

    you need to find the function module for the posting of the FI-CA document.

    If you have used IDOC's bevore, you can also look into the IDOC Inbound Handler, which usually exposes the BAPI related to the document.

    Use also transaction BAPI to drill down into FI-CA and look at the available BAPI-calls and data structures.

    - import the RFC or the BAPI into the PI and do the PI Stuff:

    - Receiver setup for the flat file (File Adapter with content conversion to  XML)

    - Sender is either RFC or BAPI via RFC-Adapter

    If you are adventurous and stylish, you can use a proxy instead and wrap the function module within.

    This is a very brief outline

      Hello Gareth,

      if you're thinking about using BAPIs and extracting them from IDOC function modules you may also want to have a look at the Enterprise Services provided by SAP. You'll find a list of them unter You can filter by business object and look for the service you need. Watch out for the EhP of your ECC and check whether that service is available on your system.

      The advantage is that these services are delivered with complete SAP content, so you only have to do configuration in PI and expose the webservice to the consumer.
