This simple guide will help you to build file to file without mapping scenario which will move files between location regardless of file content and structure.
To do so you can skip the Enterprise Services Repository part and once you’re done with SLD configuration you can go straight to Integration Directory where you need to create the following objects:
- One sender communication channel
- One receiver communication channel
- Integrated configuration
- Activate changes
Now, let’s get to details.
1. Create sender communication channel
Choose adapter type. In this case it’s SFTP adapter. Make sure to provide required elements such as host address, port, server fingerprint as well as source file directory and filename pattern.
If necessary choose appropriate authentication method. As shown in the screen, in case of Password authentication, one need to provide username and password to authenticate on host.
2. Create receiver communication channel
Choose appropriate adapter type such as File or SFTP adapter. Provide target directory and file name. If needed please navigate to ‘Processing’ and ‘Advanced’ tabs and configure channel according to your requirements.
3. Create Integrated Configuration
From the left-hand side menu pick Integrated Configuration. Right-click on the Integrated Configuration and select “New” in the pop-up menu.
In the pop-up window make sure to provide following fields:
- Sender Communication Component (select business system from the list)
- Interface (give any name you want eg. MasterData_OB since it’s butbound component)
- Namespace (give any namespace you want eg. http://companyname.com/interfacename/messagename)
Select sender communication channel and navigate to ‘Receiver’ tab.
Select receiver business system as shown in the below screen and move to ‘Receiver Interface’ tab.
Here you need to give name to inbound interface and namespace (see screenshot below). Other necessary fields have been populated automatically. Navigate to next tab.
Provide receiver communication channel.
There are 2 more tabs to be configured but it’s not a necessity.
4. Activate Changes.
Simple, neat and easy. Now you’re ready to test your scenario.
