Is it possible to replace PI/HCI in standard replication between C4C <> PI/HCI <> ECC?

Hi there.

I'd like to replicate data from ECC to C4C but the customer don't have PI/HCI. The interface I'm trying is "SalesPriceSpecificationReplicateMassRequest" (apparently, there's no other way to create priceSpecifications other than using standard replication).

I've been trying to simulate the request between PI > C4C using SOAPUI but the error "Web service processing error; more details in the web service error log on provider side (UTC timestamp 20170607192953; Transaction ID 00163E136E191EE792F6F5CF2E801223)" occurs and no log can be found in C4C.

Anyone knows if this is actually possible to achieve? Or the channels configuration between ECC <> PI <> C4C don't allow me to do it using other tools?

Thanks in advance,

In case if you are sending data to SAP C4C using SOAPUI make sure target URL have random message ID generator code like this

This is needed to ensure correct Asynchronous processing ,hence Message ID must be provided by the Consumer side.

Hi Sharad!

Thank you very much. That's exactly what was missing.

Best regards,


Hi Sharad, Alexandre

this function for generating Header message id, MessageId=${=java.util.UUID.randomUUID()}, seems NOT to work ANY MORE with current release of C4C. At least it doesn't work when with C4C Customer hierarchy replication Web-service...

Do you observe the same issue with other webservices?

Thanks in advance, Rémy

If the customer does not habe PI / HCI that means it is not integrated scenario for C4C. For replication data between any other systems to C4C, either PI / HCI (as of today) can be used.

Hi Alexandre, did you succeed to replicate data from ERP to C4C without HCI-PI?

What tool have you used?

I'm trying to use HCI-DS and to generate messageID with gen_uuid function of HCI-DS...
