Challenges in writing a file from PI to External Drive of Qualtrace System

Hi PI Experts,

We have to build the interfaces between SAP PI and Qualtrace ( a Third Party System).

I just had a chat with Qulatrace Developer on possible ways of connection between SAP PI and Qualtrace and he replied that Qulatrace can pick the files from their shared drive.

How will SAP PI will put the File on shard drive of some extenal server?

What will be the option in File Adapter?

Please help , if u can suggest something.

Regards,

Anurag

    Hi,

    1)You have to use FTP mode, ask Qualtrace Team to provide IP address, User id,pwd and directory details where the file can be placed by SAP PI.

    2) You can write file on application server of PI and use batch script at Command line after message processing in File adapter to move the file to Qulatrace sahred drive.

    Cheers

    Veera

    Ask them to create a FTP server access to their share drive and share the credentials.

    In file adapter you can use Connection type FTP with FTP userid and password

    Hi Anurag,

    >>How will SAP PI will put the File on shard drive of some extenal server?

    No, this is not possible.

    >>What will be the option in File Adapter?

    If you would like to use the file adapter, then either it should be on the internal server or FTP.

    It would be better to create an FTP connection and place the files in it. And those files need to be accessed by them.

    Thanks,

    the solution is simple this will be a FTP connection to their server provided they enable FTP connectivity for PI to place/pick files.

    Ask them to provide FTP access on their external server. If they provide use FTP credentials on your file adapter(using ftp as mesg protocol) to place files on their side.
