Overview:

Here, we will see, that, how SharePoint’s AlertCount list can be updated from SAP-PI UDF.

To update AlertCount list inside SharePoint, following SharePoint-REST protocols can be used:

  • URL: https://<org_Shp_Host>/teams/SPdev/AlertsCount/_api/web/Lists/GetByTitle(‘AlertCount’)/Items
  • Method: POST
  • Headers:
    • Authorization  : “Bearer ” + <SharePointAccessToken>
      accept            : application/json;odata=verbose
      Content-Type : “application/json;odata=verbose”
  • Body: (Request Parameter format)
    • {__metadata: { ‘type’: ‘SP.Data.AlertCountListItem’ },
      Col1 : ”,
      Col2 : ”
      }
  • where,
    • <org_Shp_Host> is Organisation’s SharePoint host name
    • Col1 is 1st column of AlertCountList
    • Col2 is 2nd column of AlertCountList
    • <SharePointAccessToken>: it is security token required to authenticate SharePoint REST request while inserting items, this token can be fetched from following blog’s udf:

SAP PI Java UDF example to insert AlertCount list items in SharePoint:

public String writeAlertCount(String accessToken, String InputCol1, String InputCol2, Container container) throws StreamTransformationException{		
		 /**
		 * Using this function, we can update AlertCountList items of SharePoint.	
		 * Suppose, if we want to insert data into two columnItems ('Col1' & 'Col2') of AlertCountList in SharePoint, then following SharePoint-REST will be consumed inside this UDF
		 * REST URL: https://<org_Shp_Host>/teams/SPdev/AlertsCount/_api/web/Lists/GetByTitle('AlertCount')/Items
		 * Request Format:
		 * 			 {__metadata: { 'type': 'SP.Data.AlertCountListItem' }, Col1: 'E01', Col1: '1562' }		 * 
		 * Where, 
		 * 		<org_Shp_Host> is Organisation's SharePoint host name 
		 */
		
		String response = "";
		try {

			//SharePoint REST url to update AlertCount Item List
			String wsURL = "https://<org_Shp_Host>/teams/SPdev/AlertsCount/_api/web/Lists/GetByTitle('AlertCount')/Items";

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

			// Set Header
			httpConn.setDoOutput(true);
			httpConn.setDoInput(true);
			httpConn.setRequestMethod("POST");
			httpConn.setRequestProperty("Authorization", "Bearer " + accessToken);
			httpConn.setRequestProperty("accept","application/json;odata=verbose");			
			httpConn.setRequestProperty("content-Type",	"application/json;odata=verbose");
			
			// Set Request parameters
			String requestP = "{__metadata: { 'type': 'SP.Data.AlertCountListItem' }, "
							+ "Col1: '"	+ InputCol1  +"', "
							+ "Col2: '"	+ InputCol2+"' }";

			// Send Request
			DataOutputStream wr = new DataOutputStream(httpConn.getOutputStream());
			wr.writeBytes(requestP);
			wr.flush();
			wr.close();

			//Read the response		
			if (httpConn.getResponseCode() == 200) {
				response = "Http Response Code: " + httpConn.getResponseCode();
			}else if (httpConn.getResponseCode() == 201) {
				// when HttpResponseCode is 201, this insert is successful in SharePoint.
				response = "Http Response Code: " + httpConn.getResponseCode() + "\n Item inserted successfully in sharepoint";
			}else{
				response = "Error with Http Response Code: " + httpConn.getResponseCode();
			}

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