Problem in creating a Data Type in Integration Repository?

Hi all,

I am trying to create a Data Type on a newly installed XI system. My scenario is:

I am trying to upload a flat file in IS, for that I need to create a Data type in Integration repository. But in "Type" field I am not getting any "FILEINPUT" type.

Please suggest me right way to define a Data Type. Or guide me if any thing I am missing.

Thanks and Regards,

Ravi

    Hi,

    Am not sure I get your problem.

    When creating the Datatype, normally the type will denote the type of your Element --> String, Integer etc.

    You will need content conversion to convert the Text into XML and the ouput of Content COnversion should match your Datatype.

    Please look into these blogs for content conversion,

    Hi,

    While creating datatype in IR you will get types only of type string,integer,date etc.

    You will not get any type like FILEINPUT.

    For this scenario you create one datatype with fields which will be ther in ur flat file and then go to ID and use File Content Conversion protocol of file adapter.

    In this protocol convert ur flat file to XMl file fields which u have specified in ur datatype in IR.

    This flat file will be converted to datatype u created in IR.

    Thanks.

    Ravi,

    You'll not have any data type called FILEINPUT. In Integration repository, you just define the flat file structure using Data type editor with the fields as either string or integer etc etc. Its actually the configuration in the integration directory, we linkthis data type (actually message type we create from this data type) with different type of adapters and file adapter is one of them. So, the file will be picked and read into the type we defined in integration repository

      I am following the blog to upload a flat file to XI system,

      <a href="/people/venkat.donela/blog/2005/03/03/introduction-to-simple-file-xi-filescenario-and-complete-walk-through-for-starterspart2:///people/venkat.donela/blog/2005/03/03/introduction-to-simple-file-xi-filescenario-and-complete-walk-through-for-starterspart2

      Here I am stuck to a point where I need to enter "Sender System" details in SLD. In my case sender system is my own system from where I want to uoload file, which is a non SAP system. How to enter non SAP sytem details in SLD, for which there no such details like client, system no., SAP System ID etc.

      Please guide me on this.

      Thanks,

      Ravi

    Hi,

    For non SAP system u dont need to give client and ystem details.

    Go to SLD and Technical System,create new TS of type Third Party and then give any name to it.

    In this type of TS u dont need to give any client specific details.

    Then give this sender system name.

    Thanks.
