Clean-up the interfaces

Hi Expert,

I have to delete some unwanted interfaces from SAP PI server in all the environmet. Here the problem is few objects are avilable in DEV and others env it is not avilable.

Few objects are avilable in QA and production and not avilable in DEV and ITT env, Can you please give some idea to clean the such kind of interfaces.

We are using CTS , for transport.

    Hello Mani,

    I guess you need to check and manually delete interface in each environment.

    AFAIK,the production box is having the original interfaces which are running.Manually,try to figure out what all interfaces are running in PROD and cross check with QA and DEV.

    If the interface is in DEV and not in QA and PROD,then you can delete it directly as this might have created for testing purpose.Also check in DEV monitoring how many times the interfaces is proceesed.

    If the Interface is DEV and QA,then the interface might not moved to PROD.

    Please gather all the information related to each interface.I hope we can to do it manually to figureout which interfaces has to be cleaned.

    Hi Maigandan,

    I think you can find some tools or tricks to export all the PI information and to work with them How to migrate Communication Channels from SAP PI 7.0 to SAP PI 7.31 using Directory API.

    However, in your case i'd rather to work manually, i think it is faster.

    1. Determine all the scenarios used in production and the scenario in development and test phases.

    2. To avoid unexpected issues, save the ESR SWCs and ID scenarios before any change.

    3. You should check the Integration Directory part. This part can change in each environment. You could have all the interfaces order by scenario. Per each scenario you should check its objects and to delete the necessaries. Pay attention that you can have objects didn't link with the scenario but the scenario can use them.

    4. On the ESR part you should delete the unused scenarios and unused objects and do the transport.

    Obviously, all the steps are dedicated and you should do the correspondent tests to avoid a possible issue.
