PDF file using ftp call in sap pi 7.3

Hi Gurus,

Bit urgent.

We have requirement we need to read a pdf file from ftp location and pass the same file to ecc which is on another server.

Problem is like our PI server is windows base SAP system and our ECC system is UNIX base SAP system.

Can you please provide suggestions in achieving this requirement, what modules should be added in sender or reciver channel so that file can be transferred to ecc system.

    Hi Mahesh,

    If all you want to do is drop the PDF on the ECC application server, you won't need any modules at all. This is just a simple pass-through scenario without mapping (google "sap pi pass-through scenario" for plenty of info on how to configure that). As you would transfer PDFs in binary mode, the OS of the systems involved does not matter.

    Regards,
    Patrick

    • Hi Patrick,

      Thanks for solution.

      i am aware of pass through scenarios,we can achieve this requirement using file adapter ftp call .

      My only concern was both systems are running on different OS and servers so is there any extra settings are required for the configuration.

    I assume that the sender and the receiver systems are FTP servers. This is a pass through implementation.

    1. Define an I-flow without any operation mapping.

    2. Define a dummy sender interface and a dummy receiver interface.

    3. Define the sender channel ftp configuration and receiver channel ftp configuration.

    4. Deploy the I-Flow.

    • Hi again,

      Yes , be it any server Windows, Linux or Mac, as far as it has a FTP server running on it, with an access allowed for the SAP PI, the ICO can do the integration.

      Windows [ FTP server-sender ] ------- > SAP PI -------- > Unix [ FTP server-receiver ].

      So. preconditions-

      1. FTP server to be established on Sender OS.

      2. FTP server to be established on Receiver OS.

      3. Access credentials granted to SAP PI for both the FTP servers.

    Hi Mahesh!

    What kind of receiver interface is used at ECC side? File, proxy?
