The only interface we have is the integration toolkit or with SAP SPM (Ariba SV can handle SAP SPM formatted files). If you need additional information I'd be happy to arrange a call.
Thanks for the Prompt response. Ariba team shared Integration tool kit . If we use Integration tool kit, Then there won't be need to use SAP PI.
But, My client want to use PI as data transfer tool between SAP ECC and Ariba. PI will transfer the data using adapters. these are few approaches we can post the data in Ariba.
File Adapter:..If Ariba team ready to share their FTP directory details, then PI will take care of data posting.
SOAP Adapter: If Ariba team provide their WSDL then PI will consume the WSDL and post the data.
Is there any way that we can achieve using PI as a Data transfer tool.?
As you said we can use SAP SPM. Can you explian in details about this approach.
I would really appreciate if you arrange call and this is contact number is
Thanks & Regards,
There is a version of ITK which can be deployed on PI instead of standalone tool. This package can be download from connect.ariba.com.
Thanks for the prompt reply. If we install the ITK in PI. can you please explain what will be Part of PI in the Ariba File transfer. If you have any documents on this approach .Please forward it to my mailid: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks & Regards,
We have recently went live with Ariba integration using SAP PI as middleware. We have used ITK to upload master data to Ariba. These master data files are generated in the S4 system using ABAP program in .csv formats. Then PI interface runs and bring those .csv files to PI server, where a zip batch job will collect those files into a zip file. This zip will be placed into the InDir of ITK folder. Our basis team have scheduled Ariba ITK job on PI server NWA which will run and pick that zip file to load master data (wbs elements, company codes, user data, etc) on to Ariba instance.
Let me know incase you need more information on this.
