edi communication

i have been asked to work on a B2B scenario involving procurement related EDI with SPS commerce. i have some information that we have Seeburger adapter to interact with EDI systems, but i have not worked on it.

few questions:

1. in pi 7.3.1 single stack, i think Seeburger adapter is available as an add-on - meaning we can have the seeburger adapter in ID for comm channel configuration in the list where we have file, rfc, jdbc etc adapters available - is this correct? if yes, then from which version we have it available?

2. do you have some information regarding SPS commerce as to how pi integrates with it - meaning do we use seeburger adapter or some other adapter to communicate with it? any blog having information regarding it?

3. any pre-configuration needed like for jdbc adapter, we need to deploy the jdbc adapter in pi system and then configure it in ID in comm channel configuration to connect with the specific database - so in Seeburger is this the case that we need to do something like this - or - we can directly use it like file adapter if we are seeing Seeburger adapter in the adapter list?

4. any blog containing the end-to-end process for designing and configuring a sample scenario like EDI document coming to PI and then mapped to its IDOC in ECC system?

5. regarding the mapping between the EDI documents and their IDOCs, do we have standard content available for it? if yes, then in which software component can we find it?

any info pls. thx. all helpful replies will be appreciated.

    Hi Stewart,

    PFB my reply:

    1. in pi 7.3.1 single stack, i think Seeburger adapter is available as an add-on

    >>> Are you referring to Seeburger or SAP B2B Add on?..with 7.31 you can use SAP's own B2B Add - On


    3. any pre-configuration needed

    >>> Yes, you need to have the required Add-On downloaded in your system


    4. any blog containing the end-to-end process

    >>> Yes,  there are many available on SCN , PBF few links:

    Seeburger - Part 1 - The Basics


    5. regarding the mapping

    >>> Yes, with B2B add On SAP does provide Standard Mapping Content for few Standard IDOC / Messages

    B2B Integration with SAP Process Orchestration

    Hi Stewart,


    1. 1. in pi 7.3.1 single stack, i think Seeburger adapter is available as an add-on - meaning we can have the seeburger adapter in ID for comm channel configuration in the list where we have file, rfc, jdbc etc adapters available - is this correct? if yes, then from which version we have it available?

    -->> Seeburger adapter you need to purchse from seeburger. From 7.3 version you have two option for EDI communication AS2 adapter as part of B2B addon from SAP or AS2 adapter from seeburger.

    1. 2. do you have some information regarding SPS commerce as to how pi integrates with it - meaning do we use seeburger adapter or some other adapter to communicate with it? any blog having information regarding it?

    -> The adapter needs to install on PI. So once it is installed you can use from the adapter list.

    1. 4. any blog containing the end-to-end process for designing and configuring a sample scenario like EDI document coming to PI and then mapped to its IDOC in ECC system?

    -> Please refer the below blog

    1. 5. regarding the mapping between the EDI documents and their IDOCs, do we have standard content available for it? if yes, then in which software component can we find it?
    • àThere are standard mapping delivered with Seeburger content.

    • My few cents to add into Harish responde (one more time one of the best):

      1.       Different license, Seeburger deploy his adapter into PI system. It’s not an SAP product.

      2.       No idea.

      3.       Better read seeburger guide

      4.       A lot of, search SCN

      5.       Under PO version B2B addon it’s included, integration advisor is more or less what do you asking for it’s included with some EDI to XML examples under HCI license.

      cheers,

      Roberto.
