RosettaNet Implementation on XI

Has anyone implmented RosettaNet scenarios in a productive environment on XI? Would you be willing to talk about it?

Is anyone currently in an implementation? Would you be willing to talk about it?

I'm looking to build a business case to move off of our current solution to XI 3.0 but having a hard time finding success stories. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks! -Erik

    Hi Eric,

    We are currently involved with a RosettaNet implementation and major scenarios include IDOC to PIPs or the vice versa and most of our mappings are XSLT based.

    Hi Erik,

    RNIF adapters support the data communication standard – RosettaNet Implementation Framework (RNIF) defined by RosettaNet. This standard defines RNIF protocols version 1.1 and 2.0. The RNIF adapters 1.1 and 2.0 are based on these protocols.

    The adapters change the XI message format to the required RosettaNet message format. The adapters also change the format of messages from partner systems to the XI system.

    You use RNIF adapters to send messages between the Integration Server and a RosettaNet-compliant system.

    Please refer to the replay of following webinar on Know-how network calls that has live demo on how to configure the RNIF Adapter.

    For more information about RNIF you can also visit, :


    There are 3 software components related to RosettaNet that are offered by SAP:




    The component ROSETTANET contains mainly the definitions of the PIP's, while the components ROSETTANET ERP and ROSETTANET CRM contain (most importantly) the mappings against the respective SAP backend (CRM or ERP).

    If you look for complete support of PIP's including the mapping to the backend (IDoc or BAPI) you need to check which PIP's are supported in ROSETTANET CRM or ROSETTANET ERP. Here the document you find following the link in the SAP service marketplace is correct. As of today SAP offers mappings for the following PIP's:








    If you are only interested in the PIP definition, you need to check the content of the component ROSETTANET (here you don't find the latest information on the service marketplace). In general, SAP is working on making all PIP's available in that component. If you are missing some PIP you can contact SAP, e.g. via this forum and the PIP's will be added and made available very soon.

    Currently you find the following PIP's:


    PIP3A1, 3A2, 3A4, 3A6, 3A7, 3A8, 3A9

    PIP3B2, 3B12, 3B13, 3B14

    PIP3C3, 3C4, 3C6

    PIP4A1, 4A5

    PIP5C1, 5C2, 5C3, 5C4

    PIP6C1, 6C2

    Also important to mention is that SAP works with some partners that also offer mappings for some PIP's, for example 3C4 and the PIP6C* series.

    We are starting our Ronettanet implementation and we are also looking for success stories.

    Do you know about any?

    Can you share your experience?

      Few questions.

      Did you use the Rosetannet package for XI?

      Did you do mapping between a PIP to BAPI's / RFC's?

      What are the key success factors?
