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:P1>Split mapping created no messages</SAP:P1>
Can anyone say what i have to do to overcome this problem.
Thanks and regards,

  • 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 !!

  • Reciever File Adapter - Temp File Name Scheme using Variable Substitution

    How can I create a temporary file that uses variable substitution? 
    We are having a problem with files merging when we write files using the "Use Temporary File" setting on the FIle Adapter.  So two independent files are merging into a single file.  We are not using the "Append" setting.
    We would like to use a Temp File Name Scheme that would append the message id onto the temporary file name. 
    Using variable substitution we created a msgid variable.  When added to the temporary file name using %msgid% the temporary file name is created with %msgid% in the name instead of the actual message id.  We put the variable into the "File Name Scheme" as well and the end completed file used the message id in the name.
    Any Ideas?

    HI Matthew,
    Why are you adding the message id into the temporary file??
    I understand that you want the output of the filename to contain message id .. and hence you are using variable substitution for the same.
    Temporary file name will anyways get overwritten by the actual file name (here the actual filename will be using variable substituion).
    So i suggest to achieve your scenario you can add any name in the temporary file and maintain the desired filename you require as output in the variable subsititution.
    Temporary File Name option actually acts as a lock - unlock mechanism from PI side while the file is getting written to the file server so that while PI is writting the file no third party application batch program picks it up.
    I hope this helps.

  • Blank Lines at end of file when using Variable Substitution in File Adapter

    Hi all,
    I'm using variable substitution in a File Adapter, it's refers an element of message, like:
    filename    payload:MESSAGE_INTERFACE,1,FILENAME,1
    The variable substitution is working right, but it's append a BLANK LINE at end of file.
    Anyone knows how to solve this problem ?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Regis,
    I suppose you're using content conversion?
    if so try adding
    <b>endSeparator</b> = '0'
    to your last element
    this will delete the default line break at the end

  • 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

  • Retrieve the message put in message header using variable substitution

    i am using dynamic configuration to put some information in the message it possible to retrieve the message using variable substitution and if it is possible then how it be done using variable substitution.

    Variable Substitution does not allow you to read all the messaeg header elements only some of them can be read/ access....for more info on how to read the message header elements refer: /people/jin.shin/blog/2007/04/27/sap-netweaver-xi-variable-substitution-with-adapter-specific-message-attributes-via-dynamicconfigurationbean
    From the above blog:
    When using Variable Substitution, only certain standard message header attributes can be used/accessed (e.g. sender_party,
    sender_service, receiver_party, receiver_service, interface_name, interface_namespace, message_id)
    Better use Dynamic Configuration to read the parameters.
    I am wondering why you need to read the message header parameters when you are putting them using Dynamic Configuration.....cant you just get the details from the dynamic configuration UDF itself?

  • White lines generated in a txt File when using variable substitution

    I have a problem with a File generated by XI, my File Adapter is using variable substitution with reference to a field of my message type. I use content conversion as well and the generated file has a white line in top of file.
    How could I avoid this and make the white lines disappear? I was trying a lot of things but I don’t really know how to solve this issue, the following is the data type used:
    FILE_NAME is the field I use for variable substitution and COMPANY is declare as 0..unbounded.
    Thanks a lot in advanced,

    Hi Jai,
    I have declare the following Content Conversion parameters:
    Recordset Structure: COMPANY
    FILE_NAME.fieldFixedLengths     0
    FILE_NAME.fixedLengthTooShortHandling     cut
    COMPANY.fieldFixedLengths     10,80,10,2,50,30,5,5,2,50,50
    COMPANY.addHeaderLine     0
    COMPANY.endSeparator     'nl'
    But it does not work, I have the same white line in the beginning of the file. Do you have any other suggestion??
    I couldnt find the blog written by Sravya either, could you post the link?

  • 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.

  • FTPs connection error:When using Variable substitution for Directory path

    I am transferring data from BI to xml file via PI: Here a Client proxy from BI sends the data to PI and the PI FTPs the XML file to a remote location. For FTP I am using FTPs SSL connection.
    It was working fine untill I used Variable susbstitution to determine Directory path dynamically. I am using this because different xml files are intended to goto the different locations.
    I did the variable substitution like this:
    Target Message Structure:
    ---> Target Directory: %var1%
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    And in the variable substitution I am doing it this way
    And the error I am getting is:
    Attempt to process file failed with Error when getting an FTP connection from connection pool: Unable to create new pooled resource: Peer sent alert: Alert Fatal: handshake failure
    MP: Exception caught with cause Error when getting an FTP connection from connection pool: Unable to create new pooled resource: Peer sent alert: Alert Fatal: handshake failure
    Exception caught by adapter framework: Error when getting an FTP connection from connection pool: Unable to create new pooled resource: Peer sent alert: Alert Fatal: handshake failure
    Delivery of the message to the application using connection File_ failed, due to: Error when getting an FTP connection from connection pool: Unable to create new pooled resource: Peer sent alert: Alert Fatal: handshake failure.
    Does anybody have some Idea of this ??

    I guess the problem is not with Variable Substitution..
    Error when getting an FTP connection from connection pool:
    So its a connection problem..
    Also check the option Disable Security check and try again...
    Try to check again if the interface is executing properly without Variable substitution and let us know..

  • Different files using variable substitution

    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.

  • Error while using the variable name "VARIABLE" in variable substitution

    Hi Experts,
      I am using variable substitution to have my output filename set as a payload field value. It is working fine when I am using the variable name as fname, subs etc but channel goes in error when I am using the variable name as "VARIABLE". This is probably a reserved word but i would like to know where i can find a detailed documentation on this. Say things to note / restrictions while using variable substitution.
    This is the error in the channel:
    Message processing failed. Cause: Error during variable substitution: java.text.ParseException: Variable 'variable' not found in variable substitution table: Error during variable substitution: java.text.ParseException: Variable 'variable' not found in variable substitution table

    Hi Zevik,
    Thanks for the reply. The output file is created correctly by merely changing the variable name to something else and hence the doubt.
    Below is the configuration:
    Variable Substituition
    VARIABLE    payload:interface_dummy,1,Recordset,1,Header,1,field1,1
    Filename schema : TEST_%VARIABLE%.txt
    Output xml structure:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    - <ns:interface_dummy xmlns:ns="">
    - <ns:Recordset xmlns:ns="">
    - <Header>
    - <Detail>
      <field2 />
    I thimk my configuration is correct as it is working correctly with the variable name change, However, maybe i missed something !

  • Comm Channel Variable Substitution - Use of wildcards to reference payload

    I am building a solution to write out tagged / XML IDOCs to a file adapter. I am using variable substitution to build the file name to include the message type, sending partner etc... in the target directory and filename.
    Is there a way to wildcard nodes in the variable substitution? For example:
    where * is any wildcard.
    Reason is that we have multiple IDOC types and I want to avoid having to create multiple communication channels.
    Help appreciate and rewarded. Many thanks, Duncan.

    Hi Duncan !
    You can create the desired target filename and target directory by using dynamic configuration via java UDF in mapping. This allows you to create a target filename and/or directory based on a string..then you could use only one comm channel.
    to access info:
    // access dynamic configuration
          DynamicConfiguration conf = (DynamicConfiguration) param.get(
    DynamicConfigurationKey KEY_FILENAME = DynamicConfigurationKey.create("","<b>FileName</b>");
          // read value
          String Filename = conf.get(KEY_FILENAME);
    // to write value:
    conf.put(KEY_FILENAME, "MyNewFileName");
