URL redirection config in PI SOAP receiver communication channel

I am working on a similar scenario where I my consuming an external web service using https protocol from PI.
I have configured a soap receiver channel to call the target url of this web service as https://portal.xyz.org.uk/webservice_alt.
I am getting an error HTTP 302 suggesting that PI is not able to follow the re-direction to the target URL as the service resides not on that URL but on https://portal1.xyz.org.uk/webservice_alt or https://portal2.xyz.org.uk/webservice_alt.
This is their server fail over handling mechanism which is very common. But PI 7.0 is not able to handle this.
So if I change the target URL on the SOAP receiver channel to  https://portal1.xyz.org.uk/web service  or  https://portal2.xyz.org.uk/webservice_alt , PI works fine without errors . But this is not the right approach because, every time the web service provider takes one of these systems down for upgrade/patching etc, they inform us and then I manually go and change the target URL to the available server on my production PI system config.
My problem is I want to resolve this redirection error in PI. I have tried raising a call with SAP itself and they pointed out to use Axis adapter which is still not working.
So I am here asking for help. any suggestions please from the experts?

Hi guys,
I am sorry if I have not been clear so far!!
What I am talking about is a URL redirection capability of PI. what i mean is , when you call any service in general using a browser/soap ui etc, it pings that url and follows the redirection.
For example when i try to test this external web service directly using soap ui tool, it also returns HTTP 302 error. But when I set the 'Follow redirect' property to 'true' , it follows the redirection and calls the service on 'portal1' or 'portal2' .
You assume PI is a test tool like SOAPUI. When the address or URL changed in WSDL and if you load the latest WSDL in soapUI it post the request to the latest URL. YOu import WSDL only in ESR not in IR. Dont forget it. Though WSDL has soap address location, it will not impact the wsdl changes directly in ID.
It makes no sense to complain regarding the behaviour of PI when the reason for the problem is outside (WS provider).
please note that the target url is fixed which is  https://portal.xyz.org.uk/webservice_alt.
so we are not talking here about the service provider altering the service and sending us new wsdl's etc.
All users of this webservice have been non-sap users so far and consumers use java, .net etc platforms and are easily able to handle the redirection.because this redirection is a part of failover mechanism.
I hope i am able to picture my problem.

    By default, the SOAP adapter sends the SOAP message with the content type text/xml.
    When you check "Do not use SOAP envelope", the default contnet type is application/xml.
    You can change the content type like this: Go to the SOAP receiver communication channel module tab. Add the module "localejbs/AF_Modules/MessageTransformBean" before the standard module. Add the parameter name Transform.ContentType and value text/xml.

  • SSL in Soap receiver communication channel

    I have a webservices that works fine in Soap UI. The webservice provider uses the SSL, but works like a web browser, doesn´t need to install a certificate before access the webservice.
    But when i try to use SAP PI using the soap receiver communication channel, the soap adater return the follow message:
    "Peer certificate rejected by ChainVerifier"
    I read some thing about using axis to solve this problem but I can´t find anything to configure this scenario.
    If someone had this problem and solved it, i will apreciate the help.

    I Have 2 communication channel:
    1) This works fine
    Adapter Type: SOAP
    Transport Protocol: HTTP
    Message Protocol: SOAP 1.1
    Adapter Engine: Integration Server
    Target URL: https://gw-homologa.serasa.com.br/wsacheixml/wsacheixml.asmx
    SOAP Action: https://sitenet05.serasa.com.br/WSAcheiXML/WSAcheiXML/ConsultaAchei
    2) This doesn´t work
    Adapter Type: SOAP
    Transport Protocol: HTTP
    Message Protocol: SOAP 1.1
    Adapter Engine: Integration Server
    Authentication: Basic
    Target URL: https://treina.spc.org.br/spc/remoting/ws/consulta/consultaWebService
    SOAP Action: blank
    Both are https and the certificate is sent at communication time (There isn´t a certificate to install in the Key Store in Visual Administrator)
    I read that Axis manage this kind of integration with webservices, because the certificate must be installed at the moment of sending http request.
    I don´t know why the first interface works fine an the another doesn´t work, then I´m trying with Axis.
    In the SOAP UI both interfaces work fine.

  • Content type in SOAP receiver communication channel

    so far I thought that the SOAP receiver adapter always sets the content type to text/xml. However now I found out the following strange thing:
    If you check the option "without SOAP envelope" then the content type is application/xml. Is there any way to influence this as the receiver of the message only accepts text/xml.
    Have you had any similar experience?

    - open SOAP receiver communication channel - module tab
    - add the module "localejbs/AF_Modules/MessageTransformBean" or AF_Modules/MessageTransformBean"  before the standard SOAP module
    - add the parameter = Transform.ContentType with value = text/xml
    I'm just not sure if you need to add value =  text/xml or "text/xml" so try the second one if the first one will not work
    does it work now?

    I think this error is coming while sending the response..can anybody tell me how to correct this error...
    Thanks in advance...

    No in the adapter monitoring...
    It shows the messages for all other adapters...
    But there is not even a single processing message for this SOAP communication channel...it only shows active..that means I think there is no processing of messagethrough this ..is it ?...but why not there is any error in the SXMB_MONI..
    Earlier it was giving an error saying the proxy authentification required..but that doesn't work...now I have removed the proxy settings ..and it takes the program to dump..

    Hi Dheeraj,
    1.) Seems your mapping is not correct. We have a provision to test our mapping in the design tool.
    Refer to the link
    2.) Go to the specific communication channel in the Configuration and change the status to 'Active'(Status dropdown is availabe towards the end of any communication chall paraneters)

  • Recordset structure in receiver communication channel

    Hi gurus!
    I have a problem with my receiver communication channel it says "Unknown structure 'Headers' found in document', probably configuration error in file adapter (XML parser error)'"
    It's for sure that the problem is in the configuration of the adapter.
    My scenario is from iDoc to File and i need to write only one header and many Lines, i made the data type like:
    And the problem is in the configurarion of the recordset structure and the lines below.
    If you know another way better to make the data type to acommplish what i've to do, just tell me I just made it that way because i thought it could work.
    If something is not clear just let me know, what i more need is the config. of the receiver adapter.
    Thanx in advance.

    Hi Juan
    If i understand correctly .. you are doing FCC on your receiver communication channel...and the following is your Target Data type
    and FCC parameters you created are as below
    Recordset structure: Headers,Header,Lines,Line
    Header.fieldSeparator \r\n
    Header.endSeparator \r\n
    Line.fieldSeparator \r\n
    Line.endSeparator \r\n
      If the above data is correct, then I would like you try out the FCC parameters in my previous post. Because in the FCC parameters, you used only substructures(Header and Line) and you did not mention the lists ( Headers and Lines). That's why i think it is errored out.
    If my interpretation is wrong, please let me know where i went wrong, i will try to look at again.

  • SMTP Receiver Communication Channel error: connection refused

    Dear all.
    When migrating processes from XI 3.0 to PI 7.1 we run into the problem that we can't get the SMTP Receiver Communication Channel working on PI. We get the following error in Communication Channel Monitoring:
    Message processing failed. Cause: com.sap.aii.af.sdk.xi.srt.BubbleException: Failed to call the endpoint  [null "null"]; nested exception caused by: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect
    (The NetWeaver Administrator log shows the following:
    unable to call the mailer: com.sap.aii.af.sdk.xi.srt.BubbleException: Failed to call the endpoint  [null "null"]; nested exception caused by: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect)
    - We copied all configuration settings 1-on-1 from XI to PI, and double-checked we made no mistakes.
    - We confirmed the PI system can in fact reach the mailserver by successfully sending Email from the ABAP stack of the PI system (transactions SOST and SCOT)
    - When deliberately mistyping the mailserver URL, we get the error: java.net.UnknownHostException. This makes me believe that the 'connection refused' error we get (after re-entering the correct mailserver URL) is indeed coming from the mailserver. But why would it refuse the connection if it allows the connection from the ABAP stack of the same server? And why didn't we run into any such problems on XI?
    Any help is much appreciated!
    Kind regards,
    Eddy Driessen.

    When I am executing an interface in XI, I am getting the message in SXMB_MONI.

    The receiver is Proxy here. Where can I get the service number of R/3 system to enter in the XI receiver communication channel and what's the significance of this? I am using Proxy receiver adapter with URL address connection. I have given 8000 as the service number. Not sure whether this is right. What is the path prefix?

  • Accessing receiver communication channel parameters in mapping

    I have an XI sender to HTTP receiver scenario with mapping to set the value of the target URL, which is set as an Adapter Specific Message Attribute (TargetURL).
    The mapping is responsible for adding hashed authentication credentials to the end of the URL string.
    Ideally I'd like to be able to read the values of the host, port and path from the receiver communication channel configuration than hardcode these in the mapping class.
    Does anyone know whether it is possible to read receiver communication channel values within mapping?
    I could store the full URL string in the communication channel but this would not be secure hence the preference for doing this in mapping.

  • Using common SOAP Sender Communication Channel.

    Env: PI 7.1
    Scenario: Same SOAP Sender communication channel is used in more than one scenario.
    Properties "Use Encoded Headers" and "Use Query Strings" are checked.
    Problem: SOAP channel is getting binded with the first interface/call. Subsequent calls from other interface proxies fails. It always shows the interface which used this channel for the first time.
    My aim is to use the common channel in multiple scenarios and do not want to create separate channel for each.
    This was working fine in PI 7.0.
    Please help.

    A workaround would be creating multiple sender agreements using the same channel. For this while creating the sender agreement, use the option "Sender uses virtual receiver". This was u may use same set of sender service and sender interface with same channel.

  • How To Configure XI Receiver Communication Channel ?

    Hi Expert,
         I have a Scenario wherein i  have 2 XI systems & i need to pass the messages between these 2 XI / PI system using XI Adapter. Can any body tell me how to configure the XI Adapter Step by Step. Is it required to Create the SM59 RFC destination with type H. Pl. Explain me in detailed.

    Hi Umesh,
    In creating XI receover communication channel, you have 2 options for Addressing Type:
    1. URL Address - no need to create RFC destination. You just have to specify the XI receiver host name, HTTP port, path (/sap/xi/engine?type=receiver), Authentication data (logon details for SAP Client number of the PI system).
    2. HTTP Destination - create RFC destination in SXMB_ADM and specify the RFC destination name in your receiver communication channel.
    For SAP documentation, see this link: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nwpi711/helpdata/en/e1/091640a991c742e10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm
