Before you start integrating C4C with any product

While it is common to jump into integration activities, it is also important to:

  • Involve people skilled in SAP middleware, technical connectivity, and the product being integrated with C4C
  • Meticulously understand your company’s business requirement
  • Go through the integration guides available for your integration topic to understand the technical aspects
  • Know how to use the following enablement material, which will come in handy during implementation:
    • Basic message monitoring to help you analyze an issue ** (info coming soon)
    • What information can you get from the integration flow excel ** (info coming soon)
    • How to use the mapping description files ** (info coming soon)

      Dear Sapna,

      we are integrating CRM 7 and C4C, currently.

      However,  we found an inconsistency in the number mapping and can not process with our implementation. Did you release the guide you mentioned in your post, already?

      If there is no guide, kindly explain the number range logic between C4C and CRM 7.

      1. Will there be different internal and external IDs, or are the number supposed to be identical? The implementation guide suggests identical numbers, which leads to question no. 2:
      2. If the IDs are identical, how can a bidirectional interface be established without the risk of inconsistent data?
      3. Is there no finetuning option for CRM integration? I know the ERP option, but it is ignored by the communication arrangement for CRM. The payload only contains the internal ID, which leads to question no. 4:
      4. The HCI iflow has a mapping for InternalID and ReceiverInternalID. However, there is no ReceiverInternalID in the payload to be mapped (see 3.). Is the iflow wrong or are we missing something?

      Thanks for your help and regards,

      Hello Sapna,

      we would like to integrate SAP C4C with SAP ERP ECC 6.00 EHP 8 using SAP PI. We assume that we need the CODERINT 600 ADDON Installation in our SAP ERP. Unfortunately we are facing Problems by the installation. We already opened a incident by the SAP and we just received the answer. There ist no C4C ADDON for SAP ERP ECC 6.0 EHP8.

      Is there any intention from SAP to release the mentioned ADDON for SAP ECC 6.0 EHP8 in the near future ? Have you pls any Information about this ?

      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Best regards,

      Hi,

      I have a scenario of creating prospect in C4C and once it’s converted to customer it will need to be replicated to ECC. And then the updates from ECC should come back to C4C. Is this feasible? The question i have is as follows:

      1. When i trigger the message from C4C->ECC will it update the ID mapping so that the incoming message from ECC picks this up and updates the correct prospect?
      2. Is there any other way of achieving this scenario

      Thanks and Regards,

      Susant

      Please can you guide us to get more details about integration between Hybris C4C and ERP-IS-U. Even though we have obtained the following information, it is not giving a clear picture on how to integrate Hybris C4C and ERP-IS-U using HCI. There are few pointers using PI on Contact Center part but not on 'B2B Sales' using HCI.

      Hi, experts.

      Actually i´m doing an integration between ERP and C4C. So into ERP there are reading restrictions that determine if sales rep. can or can not see specific customers according to Sales organization, Distribution channel, Sector, Sales office and Sales groups.

      Is there any way to keep this reading restrictions when customers got migrated to C4C?

      is it possible to maintain  a code list mapping in C4C to map the master data or transaction data with external third party systems.i mean similar like mapping with SAP  systems.  Any work around to avoid the coding in sdk for this case?

      Hi Vijay,

      In standard scenario this feature cannot be achieved. You will not be able to use code list mapping. ID mapping can be achieved using custom implementation. In case you need further support for such scenario, kindly contact C4C expert services.

      Ok, now you should configure and deploy the correct artifacts on SCPI and configure rcod_connectivity on ECC / S4.

      With the Business Configuration--> Activity List, you are OK.

      No need to configure further than what you have already done in 'External Condition Types' and 'External pricing procedure'.

      Now you should configure in General Settings--> communication systems and General Settings--> communication arrangements
