Use variable in mapping

How to use Variable in mapping ? I've tried #PROJECT_CODE.VARIABLE_NAME but execution ends with an error "Illegal character"
With regards,

There is no need to use package name if variable is locate in the same package with the interace. Else (according with documentation):
Referring to variable MY_VAR in your objects should be done as follows:
• #MY_VAR: With this syntax, the variable must be in the same project as the object referring to it. Its value will be substituted. To avoid ambiguity, consider using fully qualified syntax by prefixing the variable name with the project code.
• #MY_PROJECT_CODE.MY_VAR: Using this syntax allows you to use variables across projects. It prevents ambiguity when 2 variables in different projects have the same name. The value of the variable will be substituted at runtime.
• #GLOBAL.MY_VAR: This syntax allows you to refer to a global variable. Its value will be substituted in your code. Refer to section Global Objects for details.
• Using “:” instead of “#”: You can use the variable as a SQL bind variable by prefixing it with a colon rather than a hash. However this syntax is subject to restrictions as it only applies to SQL DML statements.
And make sure you declare it in the package as was suggested in the previous post.

  • File to file with out message mapping and using variable substitution

    Can any one send me a scenario where we can have file to file scenario with out message mapping and where i can use variable substitution.
    As of now i am using integrate configurations where i cant use variable substitution as the message does not reflect in integration engine. I need to populate time stamp between <filename><timestamp>.txt.pgp
    I am as of now using configuration scenario.
    The time stamp always writes before the last file extension.
    Let me know your thoughts?

    Hi Chandra,
    u can use the Variable substitution even without IR contents also(Mapping....).
    in the receiver communication channel just specify the path u want to access for a value...
    eg: filename                             payload:mt_name,1,records,1,name,1
    and in th file name give it as %filename%.txt... or vt ever ur requirement

  • How to use Variable in interface for Mapping in ODI 11g

  • How to use Variable in message mapping

    Hi Experts,
    I have some problem using variable in message mapping.
    In one message mapping, since a block of logic is repeated for several fields, then i tried to use a variable instead.
    the repeated logic is: first if condition, then use a udf to form a queue which will be suppressed by its father node.
    i tried to assign the result queue to a variable after the UDF execution. (this variable is created after the father node)
    I am wondering is there any restriction of using variable?
    Can we assign the whole queue to a variable?
    Can we use UDF during the process of assigning value to variable?
    thanks in advance.

    I dont think you can assign a queue to a variable,I am not 100% sure, . and there is no restriction to useing a Zvariable, only u can use it after you declare at some parent level.
    Yes you can use a UDF in the process of assigning to a Zvariable.

  • Error-Receiver File Adapter using Variable substitution when file is empty

    XI Experts,
    We are on PI 7.0, SP14.
    We are using variable subtitution to get the filename from source message. This works fine as long as we have data in the payload for filename element. But we have a scenario where we don't have to create file when certain condition does not exists in source message so in the message payload filename element will not exists in such condition and file will be empty and we should not create file.
    Parameter in the communication channel for Handling empty message is "Ignore".
    Does anyone knows how to handle this scneario. We don't want to default any file name in the message mapping if source file name element does not exists.
    We are following getting error in the Adapter engine.
    MP: Exception caught with cause Error during variable substitution: The following variable was not found in the message payload: file: Error during variable substitution: The following variable was not found in the message payload: file

    You can implement this by writing the module to throw an exception or whatever method you want to execute.
    If you don't want to receive an error message then module is suitable for you.

  • Used variable substitution to substiture the field 'date' in file name

    Hi gurus
    I have used variable substitution to substiture the field 'date' (dd/MM/yyyy/hh/mm/ss) in the file name so when empty payload (a valid xml ) is generated by Message mapping then the communication channel is failing by showing the following error
    File processing failed with Error during
    variable substitution: The following variable was not found in the message payload
    : date
    As of now the business is not getting effected as the business scenarion needs only customer master data at the reciever side But when ever there is no custmer master data in the sourse side the message mapping is generating an empty payload and the communication channel is failing ( so it is an internal issue and is there any way which could solve the both (ie the business must not get effected and as well the communication channel must not fail)
    any coments on this will be higly apreciated
    thanks and regards

    Hi Sandeep -
    Yes If you use the Variable substitution from the payload , that perticular field has to be generated in the target structure.
    To handle this You can do the following:
    Sourcefield --->exists -> IfThenElse-->TargetField
    Where     SourceField>exists(node function)-> If
                   SourceField -
                   CurrentDate(Date Function)----->Else
    Hope this will help !!

  • Using Variable Substitution

    Hi Im new to XI and Im testing a simple file to file scenario by using Variable Substitution method.
    PFB the input payload of my scenario:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    - <ns0:INF94145_Emp_Input_MT xmlns:ns0="">
    - <Employee>
    - <Details>
      <Other />
    - <Address>
    - <Employee>
    - <Details>
      <Other />
    - <Address>
    I  used the variable substitution feature of Receiver File adapter to get the Output file name as one of the Field value from payload(Employee name in this case).
    Now my question is can I be able to get the output files based on employee names.i.e.,for two employee details I should get two out files and for n employee details I should get n output files.
    Can anyone tell how  the above scenario could be done.
    Thanks for your help.

    I have used multi mapping and I tested the same and is working fine when I test in TEST tab present in mapping.
    My scenario is a file to file and also I used same fields in input and output DT(datatype) for understanding purpose.
    My input data type is as follows:
    - <ns1:INF94145_Emp_Input_MT xmlns:ns1="">
    - <Employee>
    - <Details>
    - <Address>
    But when coming to END to END testing I'm getting an error in IE as follows:
    <SAP:Code area="MAPPING">GENERIC</SAP:Code>
      <SAP:P1>Split mapping created no messages</SAP:P1>
    Can anyone say what i have to do to overcome this problem.

  • SAP PI: Using Variable Header  Binding in Receiver Mail Adapter

    I try to use Variable Header Bindings in the Receiver Mail Adapter. Therefore I wrote the following User-Defined-Function in a mapping:
    Java Function Start -
    DynamicConfiguration conf = (DynamicConfiguration) container
    DynamicConfigurationKey key1 = DynamicConfigurationKey.create(
    DynamicConfigurationKey key2 = DynamicConfigurationKey.create(
    DynamicConfigurationKey key3 = DynamicConfigurationKey.create(
    conf.put(key1, new String("Test1"));
    conf.put(key2, new String("Test2"));
    conf.put(key3, new String("Test3"));
    Java Function End -
    As expected I see the Attributes and Parameters in the Dynamic Configuration in the SAP XI Monitor:
    Dynamic Configuration Informattion Start -
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
    - <!--  Mapping der Request-Message

    Now I configure my Receiver eMail Communication Channel and set the Variable Header Fields as follows:
       Adapter Specific Attributes: Checked
       Variable Transport Binding: Checked
       Variable Header (XHeaderName1): TSender
       Variable Header (XHeaderName2): TReceiver
       Variable Header (XHeaderName3): TOther
    With this configuration I would have expected three new Header fields in the Header of the eMail, the reicever gets. But they are not there.
    When I set standard attributes like THeaderTO, THeaderSubject a.s.o this works fine and the values are also set accordingly. Where it the mistake here?
    The PI version we are working with is PI 7.0 SP10.
    Your help will be highly appreciated.
    Thank you,

  • Different files using variable substitution

    I've one scenario in which I'll be getting information like below
    Cust_Data      1..1
    VKORG          0..unbounded
         KUNNR      1..1
         NAME1      0..1
         LAND1      0..1
    now I am supposed to create various files containing customer data containing kunnr, name1, land1 only for each of VKORG
    I've tried using variable substittuion, in which i've given follwing information
    File Name Scheme : Customer_for_%vkorg%.txt
    Variable name                    Reference
    vkorg                                  payload:Cust_Data,1,VKORG,1
    but by providing this information, I am getting only one file having all the customer records.
    So My question is:
    1. How do I create different files for each of different VKORG
    2. How do I place customer data only pertaining to that VKORG only.

    Go for 1:n multi-mapping. For details, you can refer to /people/jin.shin/blog/2006/02/07/multi-mapping-without-bpm--yes-it146s-possible and /people/ranga.rajan2/blog/2010/03/17/multi-mapping-with-a-simple-scenario--fledgling-kit .

  • How to remove ":"  in file name while using Variable substution

    Hi ALL
    I am using  file adapter and I what to create file name dynamically by acesssing PO number and time stamp from the payload using variable substution.
    But the problem is I am getting ":" in time stamp field value and it is not acceptable for file name .
    So could you please tell me a way that I can remove this ":" from that particular field value and create the file name dynamically.
    Note 1)Add Time stamp option will not help me as we require a time stamp of particular zone.
    2) Dynamic Configuration code is also not use full as I am using 1:n file creation

    does the time stamp with the ":" a part of your output file?
    else use a replaceAll function in your mapping and replace the : with empty string then use the value in the variable substitution
    Another option is use the normal BPM for 1: N message flow. The use a simple java mapping that will introduce a dynamic configuration and you can create the file name as you want. the java mapping will be used in the flow of messages from BPM to target system.

    I would expect your insert statement to be this:

    If you just create a string, it's not going to fill in variables into the string by magic.
