Processing files or not

HI All,

Quick question, can PI take files from APO application server and process them?, or do we need to move the files from APO to PI application server outside of PI? like we do for example with EDI files?

I am working on the forecast interface, we will be generating a file in APO, which then we want PI to process and send to SNC, and I am trying to figure out if we will need to do some setup in regards to file transfer or if PI can directly take it from a directory on APO server

Regards

babu

    This depends on your technical infrastructure.

    You should ask your basis guy for this.

    Hi;

    As Stefan said it would be good to get the input from your basis team.

    your scenario will be a simple File adapter scenario where you will not do any mapping. Just pick the file from one source and place the same file.

    Yes, you scenario is simple. Just with the technical infrastructure, you or basis team has to decide the placement or location of the input file. File adapter configuration area will pick up your file based on the directory path you specify over there. If the process is batch, you can even set Automatic time planning in the communication channel. Using RWB-> Adapter engine->communication channel
