Introduction

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.

 

“Resources” View

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:

  • Archives
    • JAR
  • Mappings
    • Message Mapping
    • Operation Mapping
    • XSLT Mapping
  • Scripts
    • Groovy
    • Java
  • Schemas
    • XSD
    • WSDL
    • EDMX

 

 

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.

 

 

Conclusion

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.

    Hi Finny Babu,

    thanks for your blog. I have a question: how can I access actually one specific resource? Once I have a path like wsdl/structure.xsd, how can I download it?

     

    Thanks and regards,

    Davide Serrone

      Hi Davide

      If you want to access the resource within another flow step like script, you can use the access path provided in the tool tip.

      Download of resources will be available in the next increment, which should reach you in 4 – 6 weeks.

      Regards

      Finny
