Generic Export / Import of Integration Repository Data

Integration Repository is part of the general Export / Import feature provided by Solution Administration. Export / Import enables you to bring selected Solution Documentation content to another context, for example to another solution in the same Solution Manager system, or to a different Solution Manager system. All details of the Export / Import functionality are described in the SAP online help available at Follow the path Technology Platform -> SAP Solution Manager -> SAP Solution Manager 7.2 -> Application Help (SAP Library) -> Process Management -> Solution Administration -> Import and Export of Content.

Export of Integration Repository Data

If you want to export your Integration Repository data, too, you have to add the corresponding Interface objects to the scope you are going to export. The Interface Details elements are then automatically included into the export file. By importing the file into the target context the Interface Details elements are again automatically created and assigned to the right Interface objects. Note that all attribute data remains the same in the target context, however, for technical reasons a new LIFO ID is generated for the Interface Details elements during import.

Import to Integration Repository

As of Support Package 07 of Solution Manager 7.2 it is possible to import interfaces and their related interface attribute data from an external source. There are two options for importing Integration Repository data: importing from the Enterprise Service Repository (ESR) of SAP Process Integration (PI) and importing from an external file.

For importing data from the SAP PI/PO, please check this page.

Import from External File

With SP07 of Solution Manager 7.2, the import of interface documentation data from external files is available. The supported file format is Microsoft Excel (.xlsx) which has to be converted to comma-separated format (.csv) with UTF-8 encoding before using the import application.

To start the import, the interface data has to be available in the prepared Excel template. You can get excel template from here. After the excel template is filled with the interface documentation data, it has to be saved in comma-separated format (.csv).

Next, you can start the External Interface Import application with transaction AGS_DCM_EXT_IMPORT in Solution Manager and switch to tab External File.

With Browse, you can select the CSV file. Clicking Import will upload the file and create the JSON file which is required for the Solution Documentation import. Download the file to your local PC.

Afterwards you follow the process for importing the interface documentation data into Solution Documentation. The process is already described at the end of section Import from Enterprise Service Repository of SAP Process Integration.
