How to integrate SAP BODS with Ariba?

Hello Everyone,

Currently I'm working on a project, where the data flows from Ariba to ECC & vice versa through HANA and SAP Data services. The data communication is through cXML. what is the best way to create interfaces in this situation using SAP Data Services? Any other suggestions or advice will be appreciated.

Thanks

Ravi

    Hi Ravi,

    From my understanding, Ariba was recently acquired by SAP. I could not find any reference of Ariba or cXML in PAM guide for SAP Data Services SP08

    What I can think of is to get the cXML DTD and then convert the DTD in to XSD. Once the XSD is available you can use it in Data Services and then unnest the data and extract the data in to SAP HANA Database tables

    So the flow will look like below

    SAP Ariba(cXML) >> SAP ECC(cXML >> DTD>>XSD) >> SAP Data Services(Unnest data from XML schema)>> SAP HANA(Load in to HANA Db tables)

    I could find some references which you might have googled too.. :)

    Hello Arun,

    Thanks for the inputs. I'm facing an error while running BAPI function in DS. Below is the error please let me know your thoughts on this. “Error calling custom RFC function <BAPI_SALESORDER_GETLIST RFC return error! V4213 No data found 000000>.”

    Thanks

    Ravi
