XI 3.0, Party and Service problems (IDoc inbound)


The scenario is:

Flatfile (J2SE plain adapter) => XI => IDoc => R3

The basic functionality <b>Service Without a Party</b> works ok. But I run into a restriction when trying to have more than one <b>Business System</b> having the

same <b>Logical System Name</b> (XI doesn’t allow it). Basically I don’t want to have one unique <b>Logical System Name</b> for every business scenario, especially when they come from the same legacy system (<b>Technical System</b>).

Is it possible to have only one <b>Logical System Name</b> for all the interfaces that comes

from the same legacy application (or even from all the legacy systems)?

Tried even to do the same with <b>Party</b> objects, but there I run into errors (can’t even get the IDoc through):




depending on the configuration.

Is there any documentation about how these configurations

should be made?

    Hi Samuli,

    You can assign e one logical system name for a Business System (Legacy).

    In Integration Directory, Go to Objects Tab-> Business System. Select your Legacy Bus System, from the Menu choose Service-> Adapter Specific Identifiers. You must be able to see your Log system for the Idoc Adapter.

    If not, the go to change mode, and choose the Log Syst from the SLD.

    Hallo Samuli,

    i guess, you have the same problem that has already been discussed in here. That is if you create a new Business Scenario in the Configurator you can not see your business system you want to use. But that is not an error and also not a restriction of XI as you will discover in the post "can't assign business system twice". It is possible to use the logical system name of a legacy system for all interfaces coming from this system, everything else would not make sense.

    Here the link to the message: can't-assign-business-system-twice

    Best Regards
