Success Factors implementation through PI errors

Hi all

I am trying to connect an ECC system to Success Factors through SAP PI and we are facing issues. I am on dual stack SAP PI and I aam doing Employee Data INtegration.

There are three interfaces, Login Query , Usetupsert and Logout query.

The Login query is taking the company ID, user ID and password to the Success Factors. The session ID from Success Factors is sent in payload and it is not being passed to the ECC system. The mapping is using two UDFs. I changed that and did a field to field mapping and now the session ID is reaching SAP ECC.

However I am getting error in userupsert. Invalid SFAPI session. SFWebserviceFaultException.

I also see three Login Query sessions being triggered from ECC.

Does anyone knows why this is happening?

    I assume you are using the standard SFIHCM01 content and you have modified the login response mapping to copy the SessionID from the payload response. I have had this issue as well.

    If that is the case, then make sure you concat the content JSESSIONID= to this, ie your login response mapping output for sessionID should be JESSIONID=<actualSESSIONID from the LoginResponse payload> .

    Use a Concat statement with a Constant JSESSIONID= and /loginResponse/result/sessionId and map this to /loginResponse/result/sessionId

    This will make sure that ECC when trigger the Upsert will also send JSESSIONID=<sessionID> to PI and then this will get added to the HTTP Header "Cookie"

    • Hi Bhavesh

      After a long troubleshooting the error is resolved and it's working fine!

      Fisrtly, there was problem with the standard content.

      Note 1869807 -SFSFI: PI Content Correction for HTTP Cookie Handling

      This deals with the incorrect handling of cookies.

      In this two patches are mentioned. I downloaded them and applied on the ESR.

      Secondly, applied note 1838921 in PI system which provides some correction for SOAP Axis adapter too.

      Finally, I had to do some changes as per the document attached to the first note. They have provided two screenshots for the LoginChannel and I updated accordingly.

      After this the interface started working perfectly.

      Thanks a lot for the help

    Hi Harish,

    Please check note 2150199 - "Invalid SFAPI Session"...

    Hi Harish,

    Can you check if in the Upsert request, the sessionId is included in the payload? We have had the same trouble here and the solution was to create another program that will include the sessionId. Another solution would be to use the SFSF adapter.

    • Hi Mark

      I have read that the standard content will not work with SFSF adapter.

      If I am to use that, I have to create DT, MT, SI and also the proxy code, right?

      The scenario is not working and I face issues with the module configuration in SOAP Axis Receiver communication channel too
