SharePoint integration with SAP PI/PO

Hi Experts,

I have a requirements where i have to pull file(.pdf) from SFTP and place it to share point.

I have used receiver SOAP adapter for connecting to SharePoint. I am facing 401 unauthorized issue while placing file.

My doubt is, who will provide user credentials for this( SharePoint team or PI Infra team).

do we need to enable port for this in PI?

Please help me knowing PI to SharePoint connection procedure.

Thanks in Advance!!

    Hi Gaurav,

    I know two options to connect to SharePoint:

    1. a SOAP adapter - in this case your SharePoint administrator has to install/add a basic authentication. NTLM is a standard one. If you need a basic one, it must be installed/added. As I understand, it's not installed in your SharePoint system and that's why you received the 401 (Unauthorized) error.

    2. an Axis adapter.

    Hey Gaurav,

    The authentication is provided by Sharepoint team. As Andrzej conveyed you can request to verify this with sharepoint team for auth.

    • My doubt is are you trying to upload the file to SharePoint ? Not sure if there is any standard way to do this. Maybe give a try via soapui.
    • Are you trying to publish the file to SharePoint via web service?

    With regard to Port,

    as you are using SOAP, if it is HTTP - 80, HTTPS - 443 but as you are already getting 401 error, you are able to do ping/telnet successfully already so not an issue on the port.

    Hi Gaurav,

    I have a similar need. Have you used a SOAP webservice to upload?
