Here, we will see, that, how we can read SharePoint’s AlertCount list item using SAP-PI UDF.

To read ShaePoint AlertCount list item, following SharePoint-REST protocols can be used:


    • https://<org_Shp_Host>/teams/SPdev/AlertsCount/_api/web/Lists/GetByTitle('AlertCount')/GetItemById('<ID>')

  • Method:

    • GET

  • Headers:

    • Authorization  : “Bearer ” + <SharePointAccessToken>

  • where,

    • <org_Shp_Host> is Organisation’s SharePoint host name

    • <ID> is unique item Id of every record inside AlertCount List

    • <SharePointAccessToken>: it is security token required to authenticate SharePoint REST request while inserting items, this token can be fetched from following blog’s udf:

SAP PI Java UDF example to read AlertCount list items of SharePoint

  • Suppose, if we want to read Item 'E01' from sharePoint as shown in below SharePoint-screen

  • , then using its ID (itemID) inside SharePoint-REST as below:

    • https://<org_Shp_Host>/teams/SPdev/AlertsCount/_api/web/Lists/GetByTitle('AlertCount')/GetItemById('21115')

  • , we can fetch complete detail using following UDF example:

public String readAlertCount(String accessToken, Container container) throws StreamTransformationException{

String response = "";
try {
// SharePoint url to fetch AlertCount List
String wsURL = "https://<org_Shp_Host>/teams/SPdev/AlertsCount/_api/web/Lists/GetByTitle('AlertCount')/GetItemById('21115')";

// Create HttpConnection
URL url = new URL(wsURL);
URLConnection connection = url.openConnection();
HttpURLConnection httpConn = (HttpURLConnection) connection;

// Set Header
httpConn.setRequestProperty("Authorization", "Bearer " + accessToken);

// Read the response.
InputStreamReader isr = null;
if (httpConn.getResponseCode() == 200) {
isr = new InputStreamReader(httpConn.getInputStream());
} else {
isr = new InputStreamReader(httpConn.getErrorStream());
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(isr);
String responseString = "";

// Write response to a String.
while ((responseString = in.readLine()) != null) {
response = response + responseString;
} catch (Exception e) {
response = "Error: " + e.getMessage();
return response;

  • Result of UDF will be a xml string like below:
