Dear all

refering to SAP¤t_toc=/en/81/d3d45398184308e10000000a174cb4/plain.htm&node_id=68

as part as "Business Function": LOG_EHS_PS_CI_5 we have now the option to use ESCOM XML interface

Is there any body who has implemneted this functionality and can provide some feedback? was it an "easy" installation? Is the installaiton instruction delivered by SAP "easy to understand" and you can just follow this guideline and you will get the solution up and running.

Any feedback in this context would be helpful.

Hello Christoph,

I have configured the inbound and outbound ESComXML interface at one of my clients.

The customizing for it is straight forward and has a "check" report that checks if your customizing is correct - and if not shows you what you need to change. So the initial setup can be done within a couple of hours. I think SAP has done an excellent Job in regards to the setup of the solution.

To understand the solution and how to maintain the data in CG02 in the correct way takes some more time. But the documentation - especially the SERC one - is very detail on the data maintenance site. Plus SAP has plenty of documentation provided as well.

  • PDF documentData Mapping for ESComXML Files – Outbound Processing Information published on SAP site
  • PDF documentData Mapping for ESComXML Files – Inbound Processing Information published on SAP site
  • Speaking about SERC: The template for the ANNEX is not set up to support outbound ESComXML generatio - I think 4 repeating groups needed to be changed to get it to work - an easy fix once you know what to do.

    We had an issues during the outbound XML generation due to the clients DMS configuration - but I'm sure this will be fixed.

    I would highly encourage you to give it a try!

    Kind Regards

    Dear Mark

    many thanks for this really valuable feedback. Can you please finally confirm.

    The "business function" must be there and activated. This is currently our "trouble" as we do not use this SAP release.



    Yes - you need the Business Functions in place (right SAP / SP Version) AND activated!
