I have a scenario, where XI sends data from SAP to a 3rd party. The 3rd party's software has an existing program, which they insist on using (they are not interested in changing the software), where as soon as XI passes the data to it, their software will return a successful/unsuccessful message back to XI.
I would like to make the process asynchronous, but if I do, their program will probably fall over, because their message cannot be passed back to XI. I am being forced to use a synchronous call. My question is, if I use a synchronous call, can I set something in XI to accept the message back from the 3rd party, but to just ignore it? I do not want to take the message all the way back to SAP, because I will do nothing with it. Can I accept the return message and ignore it, or do I have to send it all the way back to SAP?
