This week I visited a software company that specializes in monitoring social media.

Now I am using it every time when the transformation is complex or I need to improve loading performance.

The sender SOAP adapter authentication for SOAP sender scenarios in SAP PI is one of the most widely-discussed topics in the Process Integration SDN Forums. Let me share a conclusion that I have come to recently, when investigating this topic. And forget about putting the username and password in the URL or disabling authentication for the whole SOAP adapter.
I saw a few un-answered questions on SDN on how to create or attach documents and URL to store the documents and in conjunction with knowledge provider (KPro), you can store the documents either in a content server or in the SAPOffice. This blog is applicable to ABAP-based system only.
