An integration flow usually contains multiple resource files which can be used by different adapters and flow steps. It becomes very important for the Integration Developer to have an overview of all these resources and manage them from one central location.
To serve this purpose, SAP Cloud Platform Integration’s Web Application has now introduced a “Resources” view as part of the integration flow (with the 24th June 2017 release (2.29*)), which will offer options like viewing and opening of the resource in its respective editor.
When you open any existing integration flow or create a new one in the Web, you will see a new tab called “Resources”, which lists all the resources used within the integration flow. The resources are grouped under these categories and types:
- Message Mapping
- Operation Mapping
- XSLT Mapping
For resources of type message mapping and scripts, you can click on the link to open the resource in its respective editor.
You can also get the access path for each of the resources via the tooltip, which can be used in scripts or other flow steps for accessing a resource.
For the first increment, the resource view offers limited set of features that is to view and open specific resource types. In the next increment, it is planned to offer delete and download of resources followed by adding of resources in the subsequent increment.
Hope this blog was useful and helps you consume the resource view in the Web.
