AIF WS synch inbound interface without PI - Payload not available


I'm working on AIF to implement an inbound SYNCH web service interface but without SAP PI; I've defined in the engine section the new WS engine ( but I tried also with proxy engine) for Application and persistence.

I have created the proxy class via SPROXY ( i have to keep an existing wsdl definition for my service) and in the inbound method I have inserted the step to invoice the AIF engine:

CALL METHOD /aif/cl_enabler_proxy=>process_message
is_input = input
iv_exception_classname = 'CX_MYDETAIL'.
CATCH cx_mydetail INTO DATA(e).
output-etab_error-item = VALUE #( FOR <message> IN e->standard-fault_detail
( codice_errore = <message>-id
testo = |{ <message>-severity &&
`: ` && <message>-text }| ) ).

The action is correctly called but when I try to see the message in the /AIF/ERR transaction I receive the error message:

Payload of message with GUID 0050569105921EE886AFC4C1115B262A could not be retrieved

Message No. /AIF/ENGINE_PROXY001

I also set the paramenter how described here without success:

1) Turn on logging for synchronous messages in tcode sxmb_adm: Integration Engine Configuration —> Category: RUNTIME —> add new parameter LOGGING_SYNC with value “1”.

Can anyone solve this issue?

thank you

    Hi Riccardo,

    If trying to call the outbound proxy and the Web Services Logical Port is missing or not found, this will fallback to the XI protocol. Did you create a Logical Port in SOAMANAGER for this proxy?

    Please see KBA 2033184 - How to create Logical Port manually for a Service Consumer in SOAMANAGER [Video]

    • Hi Ricardo, SAP PI is not mandatory, you can perform a pure WS call, in fact that is the simplest scenario.

      I have searched some more for the error "Payload of message with GUID <GUID> could not be retrieved" and this is raised in Application Interface Framework. Since this is not our expertise in Web Services ABAP, to get further help, I would advise you to contact this team here via Answers or through component CA-GTF-AIF.
