SFTP Config Scenario has Codepage issue with umlaut characters

We are on PI version 7.1

I have many SFTP Config Scenarios which simply pick up a file in one location and deliver it to another. All of these work fine but now I have an issue with one particular scenario where there is a codepage problem. What is happening is that characters with umlauts (äöü... etc) are delivered as garbage.

SFTP delivers files in binary mode and so in PI we don’t convert or change anything therefore this should work. I don’t understand why this particular scenario doesn’t work?

I have seen a number of posts on codepage issues, (including this very useful link http://scn.sap.com/thread/3307004), and many of these suggest using AF_Modules/MessageTransformBean, followed by the conversion Bean AF_Modules/TextCodepageConversionBean. The problem is that in my SFTP adapter these Modules are not available, I am assuming because we are only on version 7.1.?

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. 😊

      Hello Glen ,

      Apart from Message TransformBean , was the note 1906648 checked .

      Can you please try adding the parameter file.encoding in the Advanced Mode as per the note and know the results.

    What do you mean they are not available on PI 7.1? 😊

    Standard Adapter Framework modules [AF_Modules] in PI 7.1 –Part 1

    You can add them in the sender adapter module configuration.

    • Hi Vishnu,

      Yep i realise this and will of course close... still struggling with testing i.e. still seeing umlat characters eg. äöü etc., as garbage! It's quite difficult to know which Modules are available for the SFTP adapter without a dropdown, and the subsequent parameters as well are difficult to find as also there is no dropdown!

    Hi Glen,

    Similar type of discussion has done in the below thread. Can you check this out:

    Yes, you can use Message Transform Bean in the adapter.

    Please let us know if you still have any issues with proper screen shots for better understanding of the issue.

    Regards

    Vishnu
