Passing a PDF File through PI 7.1

Hi Experts ,

me at client place. Client PI team has raised a requirement to us , that is moving a PDF file from a folder in ftp to anoter folder using Pi 7.1 .

They havent clearly mentioned the process, but asked me to find out the feasibility.

They have given me a rough concept on terminologies like : Using Integrated scenerio - Advanced Adapter Engine , the file would be read as binary .

I dont have any idea in this area. Any one who can provide some link , support on this.

Adapter Engine to Adapter engine , no mapping involved

Please revert back if my query is not clear !

    Hi Arnab,

    This can be achieved by Integrated configuration (AAE). You need not configure any objects in ESR as it doesn't involve any mapping. You just need to move the file from one location to another. Please do the following:

    1. Configure Sender and Receiver FTP channels giving file name schema according to file format (may be *.pdf).

    2. Create one Integrated configuration: Please refer to this link <http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/700058f0-b1a1-2a10-39a8-ab2627b87cfa?quicklink=index&overridelayout=true>

    3. Here you can provide any name for Sender and receiver interfaces and namespace based on the nomenclature you follow. Select the corresponding channels and that's it.

    4. If you want to keep the file name as same then, select Adapter specific identifiers and File Name in both Sender and Receiver channels.

    Hope this would be enough for you to move the pdf.

    Best Regards,

    Pratik

    Dear Arnab

    No ESR Design required...only configation required...

    you can move a pdf file from 1 ftp to another .

    PI will be used only for transfering files from one location to another..no Transformation

    regards

    Hay ..

    Yes you can simply Transfer PDF from One Folder to Other Folder on FTP (PDF Format).

    In This kind of Scenario there is no need of ESR Objects , Only Config ( ID) Objects Will be sufficent.

    Regards PS

    Hi ,

    ID Objects you required are

    1. Two Communication Channel File Type - One for sender Other For Receiver.

    ( Simply USE PDF File in it ).

    2. One Sender aggrement

    3. One Receiver aggrement

    4. Receiver Determination.

    5. Interface Determination..

    Thats it .. Put Your PDF File in your Sender FTP Folder.. Check acc to your polling time , file will be picked ...

    If You found any error .. Check on CCMonitoring for Error ..

    Regards

    PS.
