Business Context and Use

This outbound service operation requests the mass creation of meter reading documents. In SAP for Utilities, meter reading documents can be created as a mass process. This process triggers an outbound bulk message processing, which is sent to request the creation of these meter reading documents in the advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system.


In the bulk request message, each object (meter reading document) should provide the following values:

  • MeterReadingDocumentID

  • MeterReadingReasonCode

  • ScheduledMeterReadingDate

  • UtilitiesMeasurementTaskID

  • UtilitiesDeviceID

  • UtilitiesAdvancedMeteringSystemID

  • UtilitiesPointOfDeliveryPartyID

  • The UUID of the (single) request message

Furthermore, the UUID of the bulk request message header should also be supplied.

Error Handling

Typical errors include: General processing and mapping errors like MeterReadingDocumentID (Int. MR doc. ID) is initial; Message request UUID not provided, and so on.
