File transfer via HTTPS

Hi all

We are currently working on a scenario where XI receives an IDOC from SAP and should distribute a flat text file to a receiver using HTTPS. I have looked around for an easy-to-understand solution to this, with no luck. Is this done using the plain HTTP adapter? If so, does this support mapping from IDOC to flat text file using the graphical mapping?

And what configuration is needed on both XI and the receiver side? Do we need to exchange certificates between XI and the end system?

Any help on how to solve this issue is higly appreciated.

Best regards

Kenneth

    Hi all,

    Even we are having something but a similar scenario. Our idoc gets combined with some extra data obtained from external databse lookups and is sent as XML's. I am kinda lost whether a plain HTTPS adapter would work for the SOAP call or is any other steps need to be done ..I would appreciate any help on the various settings need to be done...

    Hi Kenneth,

    If you want to convert from IDoc to flat-file format you need to use an XSLT mapping that outputs to text format (use : <xsl:output method="text"/>).Use the plain HTTP adapter and set the protocol to HTTPS. I do not think it is possible to use the Graphical mapper in XI to convert XML to text.

    As for configuring the HTTPS settings , I suggest reading the following documentation from SAP:
