Handling big attachments in SAP PI

Hi Experts,

We have an interface where we are attaching big files (of the order of few MB).

SAP ECC (IDOC) -> PI (7.3) (XML + File attachments) -> ARIBA (Using Ariba Network Adapter)

In our QA system, these messages are getting stuck in the outbound adapter queue . How can we tune the interface to handle attachments of large size?

    Hello, basically SAP helps you to separate big messages to specific queues so they are not processed in parallel threads and they dont hung your Java environment.

    Based on my experience the certificate connection to Ariba is a very picky moment, it will be necessary if you can add more information to this, like a trace or an error you can find.

    Regards

    Dear Ravikanth

    File attachments can be sent to Ariba Network in Base64 format.

    You can do the conversion in the message mapping and map the base64 string to the cXML attachment node.

    This can help you reducing the load on the PI channel

    Thanks and Regards
