Receiver Agreement / IDOC: control record - sender party XI system possible

Hi all,

in communication between ERP and XI (and external partners) via IDOC is it possible to have for inbound IDOCs one single partner profile for the XI-logical system?

for outbound IDOCs you can define one partner profile for the logical system XI and send all outgoing IDOCs via the XI logical system to external partners.

for inbound IDOCs in the control record the logical system of the sending business system/service is used. I didn't get it managed to switch the sender party in the IDOC control record to the XI logical system. I tried some combinations in receiver agreement header mapping but it didn't work.

When I try to set the sender party in receiver agreement in the header mapping to the XI logical system name, I get an error in XI message monitoring that "unable to convert the sender service <sender party> to an ALE logical system" .

Has anybody an idea to switch to manage it that like in outbound IDOC partner profiles you can work in inbound IDOC partner profiles only with the XI-logical system and not with many partner system logical systems?

Thanx a lot
