Extending C4C <-> SCPI (fka HCI) <-> ERP integration

Dear all,

we are about to implement C4C which should connect to an on-prem ERP via SCPI (fka HCI). We have some standard integration content we leave untouched, but there's also some content we want to extend or already have extended on ERP side (read: custom segments in IDocs or custom fields in IDocs).

While the process on ERP seems straightforward, I'm particularly struggling on SCPI. All I found points to the following process:

  • Take the SAP standard integration content for SCPI
  • Modify the WSDLs by hand
  • Modify the mapping by hand

However, what happens when SAP updates the content (which will happen about every 3 months). Will we really need to re-do all the extensions on SCPI then? The other alternative (which isn't really one, if you think about it) would be to skip the updates of the integration content.

I'm a XI/PI guy and used to techniques like data type enhancements and the like, so I baffled if there should be no such feature on SCPI. Hopefully someone can enlighten me :-)

Many thanks and kind regards

Jens

    Hi Jens,

    Any reason for modifying WSDL by hand? You can download WSDL from communication arrangement it will already have extension fields. Also, C4C Upgrade doesn't remove extension fields from WSDL, so you don't have to redo mapping after each release.
