Hi Experts
I am fairly new to PI and have a bit of a complicated requirement in my project.

I need to send a set of csv files containing user provisioning data from a non-sap source system to Ariba. The design suggested was that I ZIP the contents of the FTP folder in which the source system places the CSV file and encode the zip file to base64 format. I should then use the mapping in SCV for Ariba upload to map and send out the data as abase64 field to Ariba via a SOAP XML.

My doubts are as follow:
1. Is this solution feasible? Since the source is a non-SAP system we will only get the file in a location accessible to PI.
2. Is it possible to ZIP the entire folder containing the CSV files in the server ? If so how can I do it ?
3. Is there any standard way for me to encode the zipped folder to base 64 format ?
4. At which point should the above two steps should be performed ?

Thanks in advance for your guidance
