Ariba Connectivity with SAP PO single stack


Hi All,

I have a requirement where I need to Integrate SAP ECC (EHP7) with Ariba using SAP PO for just connectivity.

My customer wants to use SAP PO for just connectivity with Ariba network and wants all the mappings to be handled in SAP ECC. Please let me know what should be my setup in regard to this.

How can we send the data coming from Ariba pushed to SAP ECC without going thru mapping in SAP PO

Will Proxy communciation channel be used for sending the data to SAP ECC (EHP 7) ?

Any configuration guide/ help is really appreciated.

Regards,

Sainath Chutke

    I don't see any issue here.

    It doesn't matter which adapter you use, you can always go for a pass through scenario.

    Don't assign any mapping under interface determination. that way whatever is coming from Ariba would be passed to ECC.

    Your proxies have to be generated based on the Ariba structures.


    Just search SCN for pass through scenario.

    You can. What is your PI version? You can make use of XI 3.0 message protocol in soap channel to enable proxy communication.

    Sainath,

    PI can be used to just handle the file exchange if you want to do all mapping in ERP.

    Ideally Ariba ITK is the best solution for this requirement.

    When the ABAP program provided by Ariba is scheduled to run in SAP, it downloads master and transaction status data from the SAP R/3 system to the configured location on your file system. The data is downloaded in the form of CSV files.

    The Data Transfer Tool downloads transactional data from Ariba procurement solutions to the configured location on your file system. The data from Ariba procurement solutions is exported in the form of CSV files that are generated for each integration event that you run.

    Basically PI can just do this CSV file exchanges between ERP and Ariba Network using File/SFTP adapters.

    Discuss the possibility of using Ariba Integration Content and Ariba adapters which is the right approach with PI.

    regards,

    Arun
