ALE logical systems for business service or process


I am trying to send an IDOC into my R/3 system. It is the same IDOC type that I have sucessfully sent out to parties. All the config is in place for communicating with the system, because I have sent others IDOCs in the past. However, they always were sent from another R/3 business system. They processed sucessfully.

I am now trying to sending IDOC's from a BPM,as well as, from a business service. They are under the "With Party" section of the directory. These obviously do not have logical systems, so when I try to send the IDOC I get

"Unable to convert the sender service Purchase_Orders to an ALE logical system", where purchase_Orders being the name of the business serice.

How can I handle this problem?

Should I hard code values somewhere?

Which ones?

I have read the other posts for the error above, but my situation seems to be different.

    Did you assign the logical system to the SAP client.

    Use transaction SCC4.

    Is the SAP system defined in the SLD with the correct logical system?

    To solve your problem, here my solution:

    1/ In your Business Process of your ID (configurator), go to menu "Service > Adapter-specific identifier" and in the part "IDoc Adapter", write your Logical System.

    2/ Create this Logical System on your target system (R/3).

    WARNING: XI allows you to used a Logical System for only one service (Business Process). Thus, if you are several interfaces, you must used different Logical Systems.

      Hi Mickael,

      I did the following and am still getting the error please advise:

      1) Put in DELL_PO in the logical system field of the adapter specific identifiers

      2) DID NOT put anything is the R3 sys id or client field(Right?)

      3) Create the logical system in the backend R/3 system.

      4) Create partner profile for the LS and put the inbound message type ORDERS

      Do I need to do anything else on the XI side? Does the Ls have to be setup anywhere else in XI?
