Examples of calling the Service(s)

Postman

We have recently posted some scripts which can be used with the Postman Service utility (www.getpostman.com).

You can find these sample scripts and how to configure them for use with your SCP, developer edition account and our microservices here at the public SAP Github repository:

NOTE:  Basic Authentication is ONLY supported on SCP, developer edition.
For productive use after purchasing the service either OAuth or Client Certificate Authentication must be used.

SAP Data Services:

If you are an SAP Data Services customer we have recently introduced a built-in transformation which integrates these microservices.  This is included in the recent release SAP Data Services 4.2 SP8 release.
