SAP PI Initiates Proxy

Hi Experts,

We are currently on SAP PO 7.4. I have an interface from ECC(proxy ) to PI to External File server which is a simple Async scenario.Our ECC team is requesting PI to initiate the Proxy call instead of them scheduling a job in ECC. Is this a feasible service? Can PI initiate the Proxy call without any request coming into the system.

Please help with possible solutions. Appreciate the help!!

Thank you!!

    Hello Shewatha,

    I believe scheduling a job in ECC would be simple in this case.

    • Hi Swetham

      PI can start the communication with a poll with:

      - File channel.

      - JDBC channel

      - JMS, mail, and so on

      However with a proxy has no sense, why?, because normally a ABAP program do a select and process any data to send via sender proxy, but this behaviour has sense when something in the ECC begin the process (talking on sender perspective).

      May be you can do a fake sender (with SOAP-AXIS, im not sure right now), and in the receiver side to have a receiver proxy and in this code to have a second scenario (proxy-file). This seems so difficult and unnecessary.

      Regards.

    Hi Swetha,

    I dont think it is possible for PI to initiate the proxy call. Best is to ECC team schedule a job.

    Thanks,

    Hi Swetha,

    Even i am working on these kind interfaces..

    No-Unless and until there is a data push from ECC end the PI itself can not initiate any connection ..

    Proxy will be triggered once the proxy class is called ..so unless the proxy class is called and push the data PI will not receive any data

    Thanks,
