    Hi,

    Receiver Determination --> When a msg reaches your XI server from a sender, the details of the receiver are determined using this object.

    Interface determination --> With in a Receiver, there may be a lot of inbound interfaces. This object is used for determining the correct onbound interface.

    For more help, refer to help.sap.com

    Receievr Determination is used to determine who the receievr of your message is. Baiscally to decide what the is Business System / Service that will act as the receievr of the message.

    Interface determination allows you to determine for the receiever determined in the receiver determination what is the inbound interface to be used, what is the interface mapping that will be exectued to change the message to the target strcuture and also determine how the message will be sent to the target system ( which adapter ) using the receiver agreement.

    Hi,

    >>>>Receiver determination

    its about finding the receiver system for particular source system and outbound interface.

    Suppose,you want to send data from file->XI->SAP and CRM based on some condition

    in this scenario you need to determine whether to send file data to SAP or CRM system,this decision you will do in Receiver determination

    in Receiver determination screen you need to provide the following details

    1.Source system(ex: File system)

    2.Outbound Interface(File Message Interface)

    3.condition and receiving system(ex:if some x field value in source payload is 1 go to SAP elseif '0' go to CRM system)

    >>>>>>Interface Determination

    suppose in above scenario you determined the receiver i.e SAP,you will have number of IDOCs (Inbound Interfaces)in SAP.

    so to which IDOC you will send file data?This decision you will make in Interface determination(we can it as Inbound Interface determination).if you find the IDOC is CREMAS then how will transfer file structure data to IDOC structure? answer is Message Mapping

    From all the above decisions you need to provide following details in Interface determination screen

    1.Source System

    2.Outbound Interface

    3.Receiver System

    4.Inbound Interface(IDOC type)

    5.Message Mapping(i.e file to IDOC)

    Even in Interface determination you can specify the condition to select Inbound Interfaces(ex.IDOCs)

    if you have any doubts please lets know.

    Cheers,

    Jag

    HI,

    In Configuration part,

    we should say the logical Routing to message , it means ,using standard receiver determination , we can specify the receiver of the message.

    Using Enhanced Receiver Determination , we canspecify the dynamic receiver to the message.

    see the below links

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp2005vp/helpdata/en/26/5ccd3bb4560f01e10000000a11402f/content.htm

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_erp2005vp/helpdata/en/44/02ecff8dbd025be10000000a1553f7/content.htm

    Interface determination to specify for a sender and a receiver which inbound interface is to be used for the inbound processing of a message.

    We can specify the condition on receiver interface also using context.

    Hi,

    A receiver determination defines one or more receivers for the sender and an outbound interface.

    An interface determination specifies which interface is to used for the inbound processing of a message.

    Hi Harikumar,

    SAP XI provides moduled approach and they have loosely coupled the things.

    So for sender system you may find list of receivers. The receiver determination is the step to find exact receiver among list of receivers.

    A receiver can have multiple interfaces. The Interface determination on the othe hand is to find out correct inbound interface among the list of interfaces.

    Regards,

    Shri
