Header Mapping

Hey folks

I would like to know the significance of Header mapping in B2B scenarios ? and is it mandatory for B2B ?

I want to know why do we really need it.

Sorry for confusing reply.

In the header mapping you can map the values of key fields of the receiver agreement to other values: sender and receiver party, sender and receiver service. The address fields (sender, receiver) in the message header are then transformed correspondingly during outbound processing.

The header mapping is important when configuring cross-company processes in which the business partners want to replace the names of their internal business systems with neutral representatives (party, business service).

If you want to replace the internal name of a sender business system in the outbound message with a neutral name of a party and service, specify the fields for Sender Party and Sender Service in the header mapping.

You can do the following in the header mapping:

● Specify fixed values

● Define that the conversion of the field values is to be determined dynamically from the message payload

Header mappings are only supported by the following receiver adapters at runtime:

- IDoc Adapter

- Plain HTTP adapter

- RNIF Adapter 2.0

- RNIF Adapter 1.1

- CIDX Adapter

I tried to use SAP words here to make you understand. Does this workout
