Fileadapter Acknowledgements


I am receving acknowledgements from File adapters as these are not processed. When I observing using SXMB_MONI Tcode it is showing status as "acknowledgement is not possible". Can I have chance to process the acknowledgement so that status can be "NO ERRORS IN ACK".

    Are you using BPM ?

    If so , in the SEND STEP -> Properties set Acknowledgement as "transport".

      Hi MMRao,

      Refer to SAP Note 821267 and see answer to Question#6.

      See the specific portion of it below.

      "Does the File Adapter support acknowledgements?

      A: You need to distinguish system acknowledgements (indicating that a message has been received by the target system) and application acknowledgements (indicating that the message has been successfully processed by the application on the receiver side).

      The receiver of an XI message will only send an acknowledgement back to the sender if the sender has requested one. However, the File Adapter has no functionality that relies on the receipt of an acknowledgement, so it never requests one.

      On the other hand, if a File Adapter Receiver receives a request to send an acknowledgement, it will do so for a system acknowledgement request. Application acknowledgements are not supported at all as the File Receiver has no way to determine if the written file has been correctly processed by the back-end application, which is what a positive application acknowledgement would imply."
