Import Mapping as External Definition

Hi

I am trying to copy a mapping from one xi server to another. I don't have this mapping in my server. The onsite counterpart downloaded the mapping and mailed it to me. Now for me to use this, I think I need to use External Definitions to import this. Also I see two files, one and xsl and another saved as .xsd Which one should I import it into the external definitions? Shouldn't the mapping be in .xsd ?

After importing, can I can use it in message mapping the way I normally use another mapping? The mapping is in xslt format

Regards

    Hi,

    Normally the .xsd is a data type definition and .xsl(t) is for mapping. Most probably you need to import both of them, to have the source/target message (from .xsd) and the mapping itself (from .xsl). Find a nice description of how to do it here: http://www.riyaz.net/sap/beginners-guide-to-xslt-mapping-in-sap-pi/769/ or even a more detailed one here: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-3824.

    Hope this helps,

    Greg

    Hi Ajith,

    You have to import the mapping file send by onsite in the imported archives

    Then go to interface mapping and specify this mapping over there.

    Go through below link will help.
