Hi Experts,

Client team will generate an excel file containing master data and place that in FTP folder. They want to leverage AS2 protocol for secure communication.

Is it possible in CPI to pick excel file from FTP server using AS2 sender channel and post the data in a cloud database? If not, what are the options available? Note: Client will stick to Excel.

Please suggest.

Hi Kumar,

I don't think it is possible.

to pick file from FTP you have to use FTP connector. for more security you need to use SFTP. Even more security, you need to encrypt the file and decrypt later.

Thanks for the reply Avinash. Client dont want to go ahead with SFTP approach. So, we are left with AS2 only. Can you tell what are the setups to be done at client side to push the excel file to CPI AS2 URL? Also, can multiple sub-entity from client side send files to CPI using same source AS2 URL?

Hello Kumar,

AS2 server admin at sender side needs to make required configuration and you can refer below blog , develop iflow

https://blogs.sap.com/2018/01/14/b2b-capabilities-in-sap-cloud-platform-integration-part-1/

in AS2 based integration, its one to one relation, one sender can send data to one cpi as2 URL.
