Now let’s start with consumption of SharePoint REST service using POST Method

Here we need input as SharePoint accessToken String which can be found from previous blog [Part-1] UDF to Get Access Token

In blow Java UDF example, SharePoint AlertCount Item list gets updated by consuming respective SharePoint REST service.


public String callSharepoint_POST(String accessToken, Container container) 
throws StreamTransformationException{

String outputString = "";

//SharePoint REST url to update AlertCount Item List
String wsURL = "https://<client-Domain>'AlertCount')/Items";

//Create Http Connection
URL url = new URL(wsURL);
URLConnection connection = url.openConnection();
HttpURLConnection httpConn = (HttpURLConnection) connection;

//Set Header

//get accessToken from UDF-1 blog "Call SharePoint REST Service in SAP-PI: [Part-1] UDF to Get Access Token"
String basicAuth = "Bearer " + accessToken;
httpConn.setRequestProperty("Authorization", basicAuth);

httpConn.setRequestProperty("accept", "application/json;odata=verbose");
httpConn.setRequestProperty("X-RequestDigest", "$(\"#__REQUESTDIGEST\").val()");
httpConn.setRequestProperty("content-Type", "application/json;odata=verbose");

//Prepare RequestData
String jsonParam = "{__metadata: { 'type': 'SP.Data.AlertCountListItem' }, Title: 'Title_01', SAPDATA: 'SAPData_01' }";

//Send Request
DataOutputStream wr = new DataOutputStream(httpConn.getOutputStream ());

// Read the response.
InputStreamReader isr = null;
if (httpConn.getResponseCode() == 200) {
  outputString = "Http Response Code: "  + httpConn.getResponseCode();
} else if (httpConn.getResponseCode() == 201){
  //Here when HttpResponseCode is 201, this insures successful posting of data on SharePoint site
  outputString = "Http Response Code: "  + httpConn.getResponseCode() + "\n Item gets created on sharepoint";
 outputString = "Error with Http Response Code: "  + httpConn.getResponseCode() ;

}catch (Exception e) {
outputString = "Error: "  + e.getMessage() ;

return outputString;
