Business Context and Use

The Change Utilities Connection Status Change Request Based on Confirmation service operation is an inbound service operation of the business object Utilities Connection Status Change Request that enables the exchange of messages confirming the status change of utilities connections, for example, of a (smart) meter. For example, when a device has been disconnected, a confirmation message is sent from the remote system (for example, an Advanced Metering System (AMS) back to the SAP IS-U system to confirm the disconnection of that particular device.

Features

This inbound service is an asynchronous service which is triggered from a remote system (AMS). In the signature of the incoming inbound message, the following GDTs (Global Data Types) are expected to be included with corresponding values

  • Message Header

  • ID: (Used data type: UtilitiesConnectionStatusChangeRequestID)

  • Log

Message Types

  • UtilitiesConnectionStatusChangeRequestConfirmation

Constraints

This inbound service operation is used as confirmation to the following request messages:

  • UtilitiesConnectionStatusChangeRequestRequest, ( Activity Category Code: Disconnection)

  • UtilitiesConnectionStatusChangeRequestRequest, (Activity Category Code: Reconnection)

  • UtilitiesConnectionStatusChangeRequestCancelRequest, (Cancellation)

Notes on SAP Implementation

B2B and A2A related information

The service operation is defined and implemented as an A2A service: the interaction between the service provider (SAP for Utilities) and an external system (AMS)  is completely asynchronous. The service integration model requires the following parties to be involved:

  • An SAP for Utilities system Release 2005 or higher

  • An SAP XI system Release 3.0, Release 7.0 or higher

  • A non-SAP (for example, AMI system) or an SAP application other than SAP for Utilities Release ERP2005 or higher

Processing

To use this service operation, the Utilities (IS-U) application component should be implemented.

The Change Utilities Connection Status Change Request Based on Confirmation inbound confirmation message from the AMS  is the response to the following outbound requests that are triggered in the SAP for Utilities backend system:

  • Disconnection or Reconnection request (UtilitiesConnectionStatusChangeRequestRequest)

  • Cancellation of Disconnection request (UtilitiesConnectionStatusChangeRequestRequest).

Enhancements

The Add-In (BAdI) BADI_ISU_DISCON_CONFIRM_IN is available for this operation. This BAdI definition is found in the enhancement spot: SPOT_ISU_CONNECTION_IN. You can use this BAdI to create a customer-specific logic for the outbound mapping of application data. The implementations are sorted according to the field layer of a BAdI implementation, for example, SAP standard, partner, or customer.

Switch Framework

The Utilities Business Function Set must be activated.
