Business connector query


I need to know 2 things in business connector

  1. can we FTP a file from sap to business connector
  2. can we send a ‘z’ idoc type from sap to BC i.e a non standard idoc
    defined as ‘z’ idoc and message type with own structure

Please let me know if any one of the above is possible and if yes how it can be carried out.

Awaiting response at the earliest.

Thanks in advance!


Yes, one can FTP data to BC using the FTP port

  • A FTP port needs to be created. Then from SAP, data must be FTPed to this port.
    Yes, Z IDOCs can be sent from SAP to SAP BC
  • this is very similar to the way the normal standard IDOCs are exchanged.
