Have a look at different options for dynamically setting the receiver file name in my Wiki here:

Choose the option that suits your payload in the best manner. For your, quite complex, file name, you can only use Dynamic Configuration and Variable Substitution.

Hi Greg ,

Thanks for the response...

I checked using variable substitution  but i am not getting as file as mentioned in above format.

Any changes need to be done for getting in above format.

SI i need to selct there for OB/IB?

Please correct me if i am wrong?

For Variable substitution, first you should try to bring the required file name in one of the fields in your target structure in mapping. Then you can reference that field in receiver communication channel like

variablename  payload:MT_MessageTypeName,1,Record,1,FieldName,1

In your above screenshot you were trying to use something like message:interface_name, this is used when you need the message interface name to be there in file name.

Please refer what SAP help says below under Advanced Tab Page, Variable Substitution

Or you can go with Dynamic Configuration with the UDF and set the Filename at runtime.

Have u seen the links provided above??

Create a DC code in the mapping itself and just check ASMA.

Perord_year, period_month, GL* these are coming from the source payload??

Pls tried this UDF.

I assume. (Period_year and period_month) are generated automatically , if not add as input variable.

Also add the  ProductName and Table if these values are variables, I added as constant.

Put a variable "var1" for GL_LEID

DynamicConfiguration conf = (DynamicConfiguration) container.getTransformationParameters().get(StreamTransformationConstants.DYNAMIC_CONFIGURATION);

DynamicConfigurationKey FileName = DynamicConfigurationKey.create("http:/"+"/","FileName");

// Here you set the File Name

String sFileName = null;

DateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy_MM_MMddyyyyhhmma");  

sFileName = "ACCOUNT_KB_" + var1  + "_" +  dateFormat.format(new Date());

conf.put(FileName, sFileName);

return "";

Don't forget to add to Import section below values.
