Regarding Party Creation

hello all,

i have a problem where i need to send an idoc from my R/3 system to my xi system process it ans store it in a specific location, but the idoc i am sending is of type "Customer" i.e KU. i am able to find the xml idoc send from the R/3 system in my monitor but it showing a message "service and party not defined". i tried creating a party but failed.

can any one tell me how to create a party, any naming conventions etc and also how do we configure data in communication channel, identifier tab.

i am relatively new to xi so if some one could explain me briefly it would be helpful

    A party is needed only in case of a B2B scenario. In your case let me confirm something,

    1.have you created the specific RFC destinations and

    ports ?

    2. has the partner profile (outbound) been configured ?

      hello sabrish,

      In fact i was able to solve the problem. Thing is that we need not create a party at all even if the partner type is KU.

      if just created a service under bussiness service which has a file adapter in communication channel, this service acts as my reciver service. and as usual i have have created my service under bussiness system for my r/3 system. and rest is the same.

      Thanks for all the help you have provided me.
