EDI Inbound Parameters View

The inbound parameters define the characteristics of an inbound message coming from your business partner and how the IDoc is processed by SAP. A record is created for every inbound message (for example, a sales order, purchase order acknowledgment, or invoice) from a business partner. We can view or modify the values using the lower table control, labeled Inbound Parmtrs, on the right frame of the main Partner Profiles screen. The values are stored in table EDP21.

In the Inbound Parameters view as shown figure below, we specify the message type and sets of parameters displayed under the Inbound Options and Post−Processing: Permitted Agent tabs. The Telephony tab parameters are generally not relevant to EDI.

Attributes in the Inbound Parameters view of a partner profile

Partn. Number: The same values as specified in the General Parameters view. The system automatically copies the values from the general view when you maintain the Inbound Parameters view.

Partn. Type: The same values as specified in the General Parameters view. Again, the system automatically copies the values from the general view.

Partn. funct: In SAP a business partner can have multiple roles. This field describes the partner function being used for this message.

Message Type/Message Code/Message Function: These three fields have the same meaning as in the Outbound Parameters view.

On the Inbound Options tab, we specify the following:

Process Code: A process code points to a posting program that is implemented as a function module.

A posting program exists for each inbound message type. Execute transaction WE42 for a list of process codes for inbound messages. You can double−click any process code to view its details.

Syntax Check: This flag controls how the system behaves when a syntax error is found in an IDoc. If this flag is checked, the system stops the IDoc processing and sends a workflow message to a user. If this flag is not checked, the processing continues and a workflow message is sent to indicate that a Test. This flag indicates whether the message is a test message or real message.

On the Post Processing: Permitted Agent tab, we specify the following:

Type: This field identifies the workflow object type of the Agent to be notified in case of error (for example, US for user ID, S for position, or O for organization).

Agent: This field indicates the workflow object (for example, user, position, or organizational unit) used for notification when an error occurs in the inbound process for a message received from a business partner.

Lang: The language in use for this agent.(77.2)
