B1iF - Replace Scenario Step complex type with a simple type


When we create a scenario step in B1if, it creates a wrapper ScenarioStepNameType class as the method parameter.

I have a string parameter that I need to use in the processing atom, but i would like it to be a simple type string parameter of the method instead of having to use the ScenarioStepNameType class.

Do someone know how to do that?

    I will try to explain more, I forgot to say that the scenario package steps are web service call used in a .NET application.

    The issue is with the input XSD, which is automatically created from the test message.

    The test message for my 'DoSomething' scenario step looks like this:




    I tried few variants (no StringValue element only value, StringValue attribute on DoSomething element), but did not resolved my issue or produced errors.

    So when I generate the XSD schema, it create a xml complex types: 'DoSomethingType' with a property inside called 'StringValue'

    Same thing for the output schema, controlled by the last result atom format, not important here.

    This result in a method with this definition in the web service:

    ipostep_vP0010000103in_WCSX_comsapb1ivplatformruntime_INB_WS_CALL_SYNC_XPT_INB_WS_CALL_SYNC_XPTipo_proc_Service.DevDoSomething(ByVal DoSomething As DoSomethingType) As DoSomethingResponseType

    I would like the DevDoSomething method take a string as parameter instead of the complex type generated DoSomethingType.

    Something like this:

    ipostep_vP0010000103in_WCSX_comsapb1ivplatformruntime_INB_WS_CALL_SYNC_XPT_INB_WS_CALL_SYNC_XPTipo_proc_Service.DevDoSomething(ByVal StringValue As String) As DoSomethingResponseType

    How can I modify my test message and step settings to prevent the generation of the complexType 'DoSomethingType' and execute the step.

    Because one of my attempt got me a vBIU error about the identification of the ScenarioStep to execute...
