Service Number/Port Number in HTTP receiver adapter

Dear Experts,

I have a scenario where I am to do HTTP Post to a 3rd party web application via a url in the following format:

https://x.y.info/abc/sap/customer.cgi

The HTTP Post data is submitted to the CGI script which is then processed further by the web application. The URL works ok via IE or even PI soap receiver adapter is able to post XML message to the URL but using SOAP.

But I have to do only HTTP Post and now my problem is that the URL dont have a so called port number that I can fill in the "Service Number" field in HTTP receiver channel or in SM59.

Does SAP always need a service number or how to deal with this case where server doesnot expose the port.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Use port number 443. This is a standard port number for HTTPS communication (and from the URL I can see that you are using HTTPS). You also need to make sure that this port is not getting blocked by the company's firewall.

    Hope this helps,

    Greg

    Hi Suman,

    Check the port nunmber from your network team for which the firewall is opened and use the same.

    Hello,

    The HTTP Post data is submitted to the CGI script which is then processed further by the web application. The URL works ok via IE or even PI soap receiver adapter is able to post XML message to the URL but using SOAP.

    By definition, the SOAP Adapter is also using HTTP POST as its HTTP method the only difference is that there is a SOAP Envelope that is being sent.

    But I have to do only HTTP Post and now my problem is that the URL dont have a so called port number that I can fill in the "Service Number" field in HTTP receiver channel or in SM59.

    Service number is the port number of the URL that you will be connecting to, if it is not shown, it is assumed that it is 80 for http and 443 for https (as Gzegorz mentioned). Since you are using HTTPs, you should use HTTP Destination that points to an SM59 configuration.

    Hope this helps,

    Mark
