Proxy Generation for Interface created using external definitions

0 Kudos


I am not able to create proxy for an interface which has been created using external definitions. I get the following message when trying to do the same.

Message Interface LaborFeedSingle | i:hr references External Message CATSIMPORT_SINGLE | | CATSIMPORT | and therefor e is only supported in XI Release 3.0 or higher

We are on XI 3.0 SP12 but still we get this error. Does anyone has any idea of any workaround solution for this problem ?

Hi Amar

You cannot create proxy based on External definitions in backend WAS 6.20 system. So you need to manually create the Data Type, Message Type and Message Interface and create proxy on the same.

Or else upgrade your system to WAS 6.40

Interfaces build upon external definitions cannot be used to create proxies in a WebAS 6.20 system.

You have to create data types corresponding to the external definition structure and create proxies with interfaces build from them.
