XI to XI Communication - Using Custom IDOC

Dear Friends.

Hope everyone is doing great! I need some help in understanding /designing the below scenario.

Our Partner has XI system, they are getting the data from their ECC System(Custom IDOC) and sending to our XI System. Since it's an Custom IDOC, they gave us the XSD message for us to use in our system(we don't want to create the Custom IDOC on our landscape).

When they triggered the message in SXMB_MONI, I'm seeing the Sender interface as Custom IDOC and namespace as standard IDOC namespace.

My question is how can I design my Outbound Interface to receive their message?

Doe it make sense? If not please let me know.

BTW - The partner system is in XI 7.0 and we are in PI 7.1 EHP1

Raj.

    Hi Raj,

    Even we create the custom idocs we are not creating the namespace. It will be always the same. So what you are doing seems to be correct. Are you having any specific issue?

    You can see amols comment on this thread:

    I am not sure which adapters you are using. Worth seeing this blogs for some information on this type of communication:

    • Do you mean to ask for your inbound interface? Also, how do you want to process the custom IDOC in your ECC system? If you are going to process it in a proxy, and not doing any mapping, use the same WSDL supplied by them in your inbound interface. Since there is no mapping, no need of Interface mapping too.

    Hi Raj,

    Since you don't want to use customize IDOC. ABAP Proxy is the only option for your Inbound interface. Use the same structure for both outbound and inbound so you no need to develop any mapping.

    I have done a few integration between XI to XI, usually, we are using XI protocol under https to communicate between the XI system.

    It will better to have simple mapping to reduce your ABAP proxy coding to extract the IDOC structure.
