I have shape file which contain polygon features I open this file as a reader. I need to load their data in to SDE table The problem is ObjectId and shape columns are not listed in user attributes for reader and unable to match with writer attributes

Those columns cannot be manipulated by user or fme.
They are internal managed by esri and so will be written by sde.
