How to communicate with standard Inports in the UI

Hello Experts,

since the 1702 release of Cloud Applications Studio the COD_Account_QC got an inport named Reverese_Lookup_Info_Result which is bound to the main address fields of the customer.

Now I want to communicate with this Inport via an Outport created on my Embedded Component.

The fields I bound to the Outport parameters are filled with informations (I placed them on my screen to check it). These fields were created in the DataModel via Right-click -> Create Data Field. If the In-/Outport only supports values of elements with the exact same type as the fields I want to fill, I already changed the elements of my BO according to the customer fields but it didn't work either.

I trigger this Outport via a button on my EC which is bound to the Address_Info_Outport of the COD_Acount_QC. When I press the button on my screen, the EventHandler bound to the button does everything it should, besides the Outport. It seems that there is some kind of blockade which doesn't trigger the Inport of the QC.

Could someone please provide me some information about how to configure the Outport right so that the Inport gets provided with the values?

Kind Regards,

    Hi Johannes,

    the inport Reverese_Lookup_Info_Result in COD_Account_QC is not released and can't be used for the use case mentioned by you.

    This inport can be used for mashup writeback scenarios only -> If you define a mashup supporting this port type you can write back data to the corresponding data fields/to the UI.

    • Hi Markus,

      thanks for pointing that out. Will the inport be released in the future?

      For the mashup: which PTP shoudl support the Reverese_Lookup_Info_Result inports because i can neither find it ine COD_globalmashupporttypes nor in the ODT_globalmashupporttypes on the mashup configuration UI.

      I'm thankful for anyadvise.

      Kind Regards,
