With ASAPIO Payload Designer (transaction /n/ASADEV/DESIGN), you can define the payload of event messages or batch interfaces using a configuration-only interface, without coding. It also comes with a set of pre-delivered ASAPIO payload types and versions, where a version can also mean a different scope of fields or other settings.

Once you designed the payload using ASAPIO Payload Designer, you can use it in outbound interface definitions.

App modes/screens

  1. The Payload Designer main screen allows you to create, copy, or delete Payload Designer Views, and also enables you to create multiple versions for each Payload Designer View.
  2. The version screen can be accessed by double-clicking on a specific version on the initial screen. This screen allows you to view and modify the Payload Designer Version.
  3. The join builder screen allows you to add or delete tables and join them with other tables.
