Often, when looking into different ways to integrate with SAP Products, it can become quiet difficult to find out what APIs are available and how they work. As more and more customers move to SAP Cloud Platform and S4/Hana, a huge set of new integration possibilities came up.
SAP offers a really nice Webportal called the “SAP Business API Hub“, which is a centralized API documentation for all SAP Products with sandbox environments and demodata to instantly test the listed APIs.
Sounds great, let’s see how to set up a REST Connector in Simplifier, to consume APIs from SAP Business API Hub. As an example for this tutorial, we are using a Webservice for Reading Customers from SAP Business API Hub
Now we can create a Connector call, let’s call it “GetCustomers” and configure the needed parameters:
When the parameters are all set we can immediately test the connector call and see the result:
To use the result for integrating in your app you can now generate data types based on the current results collection and/or structure.
