B2B, SFTP & Odata Add-On Deployment and Configuration & Note 2258139 (XIAF update to fix Rest Adapter issue)

1         Purpose


           The purpose of this document is to capture the general configuration steps performed to

           set up the configuration manually. SAP Notes and best  practices documents are referred

           to deploy and configure SAP NetWeaver Process Integration B2B Add-On, SFTP and Odata

           add-on and note 2258139 (XIAF update to fix Rest Adapter issue).

2          Preparation

2.1       Prerequisites


            Before starting installing verified Compatibility Matrix for all the adapters,

           To Implement the B2B, SFTP and Odata adapters of SAP NetWeaver  Process Orchestration

           solution for electronic data interchange (EDI), a running SAP NetWeaver PI 7.11 SP08 (or higher)

           is required and our PPO system is PI 7.5 SP02 PPO is accessible including adequate permissions

           for the following parts:

  1.     Verify administrative access to:

  •   System Landscape Directory (SLD)
  •   Software Update Manager (SUM)
  •   Enterprise Service Builder
  •   SAP NetWeaver Administrator (NWA)
  •   Integration Builder
  •   B2B Add-On Converter Maintenance GUI
  •   Solution manager and s-user for calculating stack and downloading software

    2.    SAP NetWeaver Process Orchestration secure Connectivity Add-On 1.0 product must be installed

           in the SAP NetWeaver Process Integration system or it should be included in the stack we are

          deploying. In the scenario we are deploying SFTP  and PGP components which are part of Secure

          Connectivity Add-On 1.0 product together with B2B and Odata Add-Ons.

          For Information on the system landscape and supported process integration releases, referred

          SAP Note 1695522 and SDN Article on implementation and deployment for B2B Adapters.

          For more information on implementing the B2B Add-On, see the Installation Guide in the B2B

          file archieve.


3.          Configuration

3.1        Import Design Objects in SAP Enterprise Service Repository

3.1.1     Download B2B Add-On from SAP Software Download center

1.     Download the B2B,SFTP and Odata Add-On and content for the adapters from the SAP Service Marketplace.










2.     From the download Zip file extract the file XI7_11_B2B_TOOLKIT_1.0_04 tpz from the directory

        B2BTOOLKIT1004_2 within the ZIP file. This file contains the metadata for the adapters.

3.1.2      Import Design Objects into Enterprise Service Repository

1.          Open the Enterprise Service Builder (ESR) of SAP NetWeaver process integration

2.          Import XI7_11_B2B_TOOLKIT_1.0_04_02 tpz , into the ESR.


3.          Browse the previously extracted XI7_11_B2B_TOOLKIT_1.0_04_02 tpz from the client or server file system.

4.          After import, the SWCV B2B TOOLKIT is visible in the ESR.

          http://sappo03:50000/dir/start/index_jsp Open ESR






          Continue above process for all.tpz files


3.2         Installation of B2B, SFTP and Odata Add-On for SAP NetWeaver

            Process Integration –PPO & note 2258139

3.2.1    Deploy the B2B, SFTP and Odata Add-On Using Software Update

            Manager – PPO & note 2258139

1.     Logon to the OS of PPO System as PPO adm and extract SUM.

2.     Use the Software Update Manager (SUM) to deploy the adapters in the J2EE server.

3.     Prepare the following SCA files from the content of the ZIP file to the in directory of the

        SUM E:\usr\sap\SW\stack_ppo


  • PIADAPTERS02_9-20012293.SCA
  • PIB2BAS204_14-20009367.SCA
  • PIB2BOFTP04_18-20009368.SCA
  • PIB2BPGP04_2-20009372.SCA
  • PIB2BSFTP04_19-20009365.SCA
  • PIB2BTOOLKIT04_57-20009369.SCA
  • PIB2BX40004_2-20009366.SCA
  • PICOASUF02_7-10013382.SCA
  • SAPXIAF02P_2-80000737.SCA

4.     Start SUM from the PI server installation directory:


5.     On the Log On screen, enter the administration credentials.

6.     Choose Log On.

7.     On the next screen, choose Manually Prepared directroy.

8.     Choose Next

        The components in the queue are displayed.

9.     Choose Next.

10.    Verify the components to be deployed.

11.    Choose  Star.

         The status displays the deployment is successful. You can further verify by choosing the

         Deployed Components tab.

12.     Choose Exit.
















     Successfully installed the B2B, SFTP and Odata Add-Ons and note 2258139 which required XIAF component

     patch 02 for SP02 to fix REST Adapter issue. Verified the successful Implementation by checking information

     and adapter metadata.





3.2.2     Post-Installation of B2B, SFTP and Odata Add-On

             Depending on the components to be used the following procedures might be required     B2B Mapping Kit

1     From the downloaded ZIP file, extract the file

       XI7_11_B2B_MAPPING_KIT_1.0_04_01.tpz from the directory B2BMAPPINGKIT1004_1

       within the ZIP file. This file contains the metadata for the adapters.

       XI7_11_SFTP_ADAPTER_1.0_04_02.tpz from the extracted folder from client or server.

5     After the import, you should see the SWCV B2B MAPPING KIT in the ESR.

     Java Archiver Mapping (optional) - skipped

1     Open the .zip file PIB2BCONTENT04_2-20009370.ZIP and unpack the JAR file .

2     Import the JAR file into the ESR by, for example, entering the customer SWCV and

       namespace, right-clicking on the namespace and selecting New,

       The JAR file is needed for the Java Mapping to function the Archiver Module.

3     In the Create Object Window chose Mapping Objects / Imported Archive and enter

       a name for the archive on the right Name Field.

4     Choose Create to generate the Imported Archive.

5     In the Archive Program Table of the previously created object, choose Import Archive.

6     In the browser dialog, select the you have just extraxted.     Upload B2B Files - skipped


The .B2B files have to be un-zipped and saved in the developer/administrator workstation. This should be

used for the various EDI-XML converters. The names of the available B2B files are listed below. All files

must be installed for full functionality. These steps are the prerequisite to export necessary XSD-Files of

the different EDI-Message types.


1     Extract the .B2B files from file

2     Access the EDI-XML Converter page of process Integration through following URL

3     For every EDI Type necessary (for out RDS EDIFACT & ANSI X.12) do the following instructions

       to import the belonging .B2B-File


4     Select the related B2B File from the exported file and choose import.



5    The file is imported. The import my take time. You can check the progress in the Explorer’s status

      bar. To verify a successful implementation, check the log-file on the system. The location of the log

      files displayed in the notification message below.
