Creating Proxy in SAP without PI for HCI PI integration

Dear Experts-

I am working on HCI integration in which as of today client has PI in their landscape using which PROXY interfaces can be created in HCI. In future PI will be removed as they want to use HCI cloud in such cases how to create an outbound proxy in SAP and use it to send the data using the same process as in PI proxies under SPROXY?

Here is my understanding: We need to create an FM module having the same functionality as SPROXY and then create a webservice to get WSDL URL and then create consumer proxy so that HCI binding can be created.

Please let me know.

Regards

HS

    Hi Hari,

    in case you don't have PI anymore, and would like to use HCI as a middleware for your ABAP AS systems, then i think you can not use the XI runtime anymore. Using the outbound proxy objects and the logical ports for these, you can transmit the data to HCI using WS runtime in ABAP.
    So the logical port (on top of the outbound proxy object) has to address the HCI service, and on the other side the inbound server proxy has to be reachable for HCI. Either by using the iternet proxy type or by using the Cloud connector or other reverse proxy.

    Viktor-

    Thank you very much for your response. we have created Consumer Proxy and performed HCI binding using the endpoints.

    • Hi Hari,

      My scenario is that need to call an external Webservice to pass along files concerning sickness absence from ABAP. This Webservice uses a SOAP envelope. I have tried to create a Service consumer from the WSDL provided from the URL. However when I look at the external or interview that's created for the Service consumer I see no element for the SOAP envelope, in fact I see the bare minimum.

      I've already tried asking for help via SAP community, however without succes. Like I said while searching I came across your question and saw you trying to create something with SPROXY functionality and issues with SOAP. That's why I tried asking you for some help, thinking it couldn't hurt to try.

      Regards,
