    Hi Balaji

    Your sender business system does not have a logical system name.

    go to SLD and give any name as logical system for your third party sender business system.

    After cache refresh do compare SLD in adapter specific identifier.

    If you can see logical system name in adapter specific identifier...issue is resolved.

    Otherwise create new business system with logical system name and do the configuration according to new B.S.

    • Saw this was unanswered...

      In the code inside PI around Logical Systems (after all other logic), it has a habit of clearing the Party (and only retaining the Component Name) before looking up Adapter Specific Info... so it tries to look up your Component with a BLANK Party to find the Adapter Specific Logical System config. And it doesnu2019t find it because you have a Party defined.

      So you either overwrite the sender component with an identity that has no party (like Michael suggested), or if you want and or need to keep the Sender Logical System there is an alternative:

      Copy the Component and erase the Party on the Component Copy. This will still have the Sender Specific Adapter details in it. A Message can then be reprocessed and you should find it works correctly.

    Hi PI Experts,

    I am getting same error 'Unable to convert the sender service to an ALE logical system' for the scenario SOAP --> PI --> IDOC.

    I have tried giving Sender communication component and Receiver Communication component in Receiver Agreement under Header mapping, but still am getting the same error.

    Could you please let me know, if i need to do some thing else to fix this issue.

    Thanks in advance.
