PI Interface Design Query - Web page

Hi Experts

I am in doubt how to design an PI Interface and unable to decide and require your help.

PI should pick an .txt file from web url and download it in PI Folder and then send the same file to SAP (ECC). My PI is on windows OS.

I have gone through the following "https://blogs.sap.com/2010/01/22/pixi-how-to-get-an-xml-file-from-a-web-page-without-own-development/".

Doubts:

1) When i try to hit the weburl , it is asking for security and asking for Agree or DoNotAgree and unless we select the Agree button manually on the webpage the .txt file url is not opening, how to handle the same from PI, can you guys suggest some script code to over come the issue. ( PI OS is windows )

please find the screen shot and the url

https://www.frbservices.org/EPaymentsDirectory/FedACHdir.txt

Please suggest how to over come the issue.

I am thinking of using the same Script design for the interface development as suggested by Michal Krawczyk,the only difference is that i want to download the .txt file.

Please suggest any standard design and also script code and share your thoughts .

Thanks in Advance

Regards

Naga

    Hi Naga,

    This URL is for the front end access for the user. Ideally, there should be another URL for system connection.

      Hi Harish

      I will try and speak with the client and get an update and see.

      Also need help regarding the windows script code for downloading the file and sending the file to SAP.

      Thanks in advance.

    Hi Naga,

    I can notice that the second an n times is possible to access without the first page. I think there is a cookie or an id session, with the SOAP AXIS adapter you can control the cookies, could you debugg the communication and to know if there is a cookie involved?

    Regards.

      Hi Inaki Vila

      I am thinking of using the same Script design for the interface development as suggested by Michal Krawczyk. I have searched for any Standard PI Development for the same but could not find it. PI needs to download the file and then the same file needs to be sent to SAP for further processing, so i think there will not be any mapping involved. My difficulty is overcoming the Agree or DoNotAgree , if you close the session and give the copied url too then also it is asking for the same.

      Regards
