How to test HTTP file?

Hi all,

I have a simple senario to test HTTP file.

I want HTTP file to be written into XI as a file.

Can anyone tell me the steps involved in this?

I have created a HTTP service as sender with HTTP as communication channel, sender message interface.

Is there anything I have to fill in receiver tab?

I have the XI as business system receiver with file communication channnel.

How about the sender message interface for HTTP, should it be ASYNC, ABSTRACT?

I created the receiver determination, interface determination, receiver agreement.

Am I missing anything?

I appreciate your response.

    Hi Felix,

    If it is a http request coming in to XI then it has to be in XML format. This XML payload has to be posted in the XI using an URL format. Format is given in the link below.

    Once the data is in XML format then a smiple message mapping can help you get the desired text file.


    The following link form "sap help" would guide you in a great way in using http adapter.

    Good luck,
