OCI: Open Catalog Interface setting and trouble shooting - OCI-Parameter


I try to implement an OCI-interface between ECC-PM orders / task-lists and ARIBA.
The outbound section works fine, we reach out to ARIBA, but the User-ID we transfer is in upper cases. On ARIBA side all user accounts are with lower cases.
This mean that the ECC-user do not get his ARIBA account parameters as a new ARIBA user with upper cases and no user parameters is created.
How can I solve this problem? Do I have to send the SY-UNAME in lower cases? But how?
Apart from this I want to send via OCI the email-address of the current ECC-User.
There is no SY-paramter available. How can I pick it up from the ECC-SU01 account into the OCI-parameter?

Best regards, Petra Read

    Check the Ariba Procurement Content Integration Guide (link PDF) if you find something on the Setup of the User-Parameters ... We do not have ARIBA-enabled E-Procurement so I am not well-placed to make assumptions on this but :

    • Could you inform the ARIBA-contacts on this? They might be able to change the Uppercase / Lowercase or provide you with a Solution?
    • Create a SAP-Incident for this?

    Any unattainable requirements through Customizing, might be feasable with some Development :

    • In your SAP-System there might be a way to make those kind of 'subtle' changes right before the Catalog (Popup) is raised. At PM-level the FM "


      " is Executed upon Clicking the 'Catalog'-Button. Through BAdI "


      " you might be able to intercept the OCI-Parameters and adjust accordingly ...

    So, even though feasable with some Development, I feel there should be a 'standard' way of getting the right User Logged in so check with the ARIBA-People or SAP-Support first ...
