Import Mapping as External Definition
I am trying to copy a mapping from one xi server to another. I don't have this mapping in my server. The onsite counterpart downloaded the mapping and mailed it to me. Now for me to use this, I think I need to use External Definitions to import this. Also I see two files, one and xsl and another saved as .xsd Which one should I import it into the external definitions? Shouldn't the mapping be in .xsd ?
After importing, can I can use it in message mapping the way I normally use another mapping? The mapping is in xslt format
Normally the .xsd is a data type definition and .xsl(t) is for mapping. Most probably you need to import both of them, to have the source/target message (from .xsd) and the mapping itself (from .xsl). Find a nice description of how to do it here: http://www.riyaz.net/sap/beginners-guide-to-xslt-mapping-in-sap-pi/769/ or even a more detailed one here: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-3824.
Hope this helps,
