Issue in converting XML to JSON elments with prefixes in REST receiver channel

Dear SAP Experts,

Below is my scenario & issue which needs expert advise.


  1. We are in SAP PI 7.4
  2. I want to consume REST API’s hosted by third party to update SAP HR Master data. Here the third party accepts data only in JSON format.
  3. Below is the expected JSON payload for updating HR Master data through REST PUT operation.


"schemas": [





"employeeNumber": "12345",

"urn:ietf:params:scim:schemas:extension:peakon:2.0:User": {

"emailID": "",

"division": "HR"




  1. I am able to configure REST receiver adapter channel to convert xml to JSON expect for element"urn:ietf:params:scim:schemas:extension:peakon:2.0:User".
  2. How can we build xml so that prefix urn:ietf:params:scim:schemas:extension:peakon:2.0 is added to JSON element USER while conversion?

    Hi Santosh!

    I've never tried it myself, but the REST channel provides possibility for namespace mapping during XML to JSON conversion. So, I guess, that you would try to qualify your source fields in XML payload with some namespace and map that namespace to respective JSON namespace in REST channel settings.

    Hello Santhosh,

    Can you create an XML and then in turn XSD from the output JSON payload and use it as your target structure? It may contain the required prefixes then.
