FTP IDocs to EDI Subsystem


We have a requirement where we need to FTP IDocs saved in UNIX directory (file port)in SAP to EDI subsytem. For this we are using a UNIX shell script. There will be multiple jobs scheduled in background to generate IDocs and write to file port. Once the IDocs are created they will be FTPed using the shell script.

The problem here is there is a possibility when Script is running simultaneously some IDocs are being created. In this case the IDocs which have been partially written might also get FTPed to subsystem. How can we resolve this issue?

Any help in this regard is highly appreciated. I promise to reward helpful answers.

    Hi Gajendra,

    May be you can create two UNIX directories. One in which the IDOC is written and the other where you can copy the IDOC and then run the shell script on the other directory.

    Alternatively you can trigger some UNIX event which will then trigger the Shell script daemon. This way you can have some control on the files.




    I am not much aware of the UNIX commands so you need to check. In our org we have similar process but we take a backup of the files to other directory and then run the shell script in the new directory.
