IDoc

Hi,

I am new to SAP PI.

I am working on a message mapping that is between IDoc to External Definition,that is ,XSD.

Now the IDoc structure is changed,means it has removed one field that was not being used.

The ABAPer has done the changes in the ABAP side and released the IDoc.

Now I need to import it into PI.

Can I replace the source IDoc in the current mapping without changing the mapping at all?

Also,do I need to make any changes in the Idx2 as I need to delete the metadata for the IDoc and upload it again?

Please tell me the above things in sequence so that I can follow them sequentially.

Thanks,

Gayatri

    Hi,

    If field added at lower level segment it is not going to affect anything in mapping, where every you mapped deleted field logic to be altered.

    then deplete metadata and import it once again.

    Hi Gayatri,

    1. re -import the idoc in PI

    2. Activate the idoc structure.

    3. Update the message mappings which involvs the idoc.

    4. Activate the mappings and corrosponding interface mapping.

    5. Delete metadata of the idoc using idx2 transaction.

    If you run the scenario, the idoc metadata structure will automatically get updated so re-import of idoc metadata using IDX2 is not mandatory step.

    Hope this solves your problem.

    regards

      Hi,

      1. re-import idoc structure into PI under imported objects and activate then coming IDX2 delete meta data and import meta data using IDX2.

      2. Coming Message Mapping ,Your existing mapping will not be affected. then all steps you done you need to check cache.

      regards,

    I think a simple meta-data refresh should do ..

    Yes .

    1. Remimport the idoc .

    Activate it .

    Make sure the cache is all green .

    Check if the newly added fields are there .

    2.Delete the metadata from IDX2

    This should do it .
