WHINT Interface Documentation for SAP Process Orchestration



This solution creates an automatic documentation of your interface landscape by generating PDF documents in plain text describing your SAP Process Orchestration Configuration Scenario.

WHINT Interface Documentation for SAP PI/PO

The structure is as follows:

  • One PDF document is created per Configuration Scenario or NWDS Folder or NWDS iFlow
  • Each Sender Interface generates a new page
  • Each Receiver System (one or more) is listed with
    • one or more Receiver Interface(s), Channel(s) and Mappings
    • Mappings are listed with all mapping steps (programs)
  • All unassigned routing objects will be collected into a Generic Scenario called “_Objects_not_assigned.pdf

The overall logic is using the structure of the Interface Catalog, providing a complete list of all end-to-end interfaces of your landscape: How to use the results of WHINT InterfaceCatalog.

Template Structure:

Scenario: <PI Configuration Scenario Name>
<Description of Scenario>

<No.>. <SenderParty> <SenderService> <Interface>

<Description of Integrated Configuration / Receiver Determination>

   - Party:     <Sender Party>
   - Service:   <Sender Service>
   - Channel:   <Sender Channel>
   - Interface: <Interface Name>
                <Interface Namespace>

   /> RECEIVER <No.>
      - Party:     <Receiver Party>
      - Service:   <Receiver Service>
      - Routing:   <Routing Rule or Receiver Determination Mapping>
                   <Mapping Parameters>

      /> INTERFACE <No.>
         - Interface:   <Interface Name>
                        <Interface Namespace>
         - Channel:     <Sender Channel>
         - Mapping:     <Operation Mapping Name>
                        <Operation Mapping Namespace>
             Parameter: <Name>:<Value>
               Request: <Step No.> (<Type>) <Mapping Program Name> 
                                            (<Imported Archive>)
                                            <Mapping Program Namespace>
              Response: <Step No.> (<Type>) <Mapping Program Name> 
                                            (<Imported Archive>)
                                            <Mapping Program Namespace>
             Exception: <Step No.> (<Type>) <Mapping Program Name> 
                                            (<Imported Archive>) 
                                            <Mapping Program Namespace>
         - Routing:     <Routing Rule>


  • You need to have the WHINT Interface Catalog already, which reads all interfaces and routings from your Integration Directory. Instead creating an Excel document, multiple PDF documents are created.
  • Import the ESR Content “WHINT_IFD, 2016.10 of” (TPZ provided by Whitepaper InterfaceDesign) into your SAP Process Orchestration ESR.

Configuration Guide

  • Change the existing iFlow/Integrated Configuration (PO) or Receiver Determination (PI) to add the Receiver Interface ConfigurationScenario_In [] with the appropriate Operation Mapping InterfaceCatalogWithScenarios_To_ConfigurationScenario_Split [].
  • Assign a the lookup channel (e.g. created from template REST_RCV_ESR_750) using the pattern <service>:<channel>
  • The file name of the PDF is used from the Configuration Scenario.
