Exchange Infrastructure (XI)
IDoc to File Scenario
by Neeraja Surapaneni
This document describes IDoc to
file scenario in which an IDoc from an SAP system is converted into a Flat File
and routed to the FTP Server via Exchange Infrastructure.
A business system representing
Sender SAP system sends the IDoc to XI; XI converts the IDoc to Flat File and
sends it to the receiving business system (FTP Server) by using an inbound File
2 Configurations at
the Sender System (SAP R/3)
This section describes all the configurations needed
in the Sender SAP System (R3X) for sending an IDoc to XIR.
2.1 Create RFC Destination
Use TCode SM59 to create RFC Destination in R3X to connect to XI (XIR) system.
RFC Destination in R3X: R3X_TO_XIR
2.2 Maintain Ports
Use TCode WE21 to create a tRFC Port. The RFC Destination created in the previous step should be assigned to this port.
Port in R3X: SAPXIR
2.3 Maintain Partner Profile
Create a Partner Profile for the Receiver System (XIRCLNT100) using the T-Code WE20, with the following outbound parameters.
2.4 Create Distribution Model (BD64)
Create model view and add Message type with following
Sender System – R3XCLNT100
Receiver System – XIRCLNT100
Message type - MATMAS
Distribute the Model view.
3 Configurations in
the Integration Server
This section gives an overview
of all the configurations required in the Integration server. These settings are
required for the XI system to receive the IDoc sent by the Sender SAP system.
3.1 Create RFC Destination
Use TCode SM59 to create an RFC Destination of Type 3 in order to establish communication with the Sender SAP system.
Sender RFC Destination in XIR: R3XCLNT100
3.2 Create Port
On the Integration Server, create a port for IDoc communication using transaction IDX1.
Ideally, the port name should be of the format SAPxxx, where xxx is the system id of the SAP system. The created port has to be bind with the RFC Destination of the Sender SAP system configured in the Step 3.1 above.

3.3 Transaction IDX2
This configuration step is used
to import the metadata of the IDoc using the corresponding Business system’s
port as below.
