using BPM in full synchronous scenario

Hi PI Experts,

I'm trying to use a single BPM in a "full synchronous scenario" like this :

-Portal EP call webservice -> SAP PI. This one then execute a BPM with 2 successives steps/calls of Bapis :

-first Bapi call on Backend ECC

-second Bapi call on Backend SRM

-...and then return response message to EP caller

When designing BPM, i can only create variables in container using "Abstract Asynchronous interface"'

=> I don't understand how to design the response message from BPM to EP caller....

Thanks a lot for your help

Best regards

Hi Etienne,

Your BPM start step should be specified as "opening a sync/async bridge".

That final response message to EP should be marked as "closes a sync/async bridge".

BPM can only handle abstract message types, which is why you need to define the outbound and inbound message containers of that synchronous interface to EP as separate abstract asynchronous message interfaces.

Hope that helps
