  • Hi Divya,

    thanks a lot, it is very useful in our use case. Since currently it is still in Neo, do you know when will this be available in SAP CP Cloud Foundary version.

    best regards,

    • Hi Kuan,

      Thanks a lot for the kind words. The Cloud Foundry availability is planned for Q1 2019 🙂 so i would say it just right around the corner.

      Thanks and Best Regards,

  • I saw that there is a Connector for R/3 BAPI which I think sounds very interesting. Where can I read more about it and will it be available in the Trial Tenant?

     

    Many thanks!

  • Hi Divya,
    we are currently using the scp Portal using Azure Identity authentication for the Users.

    Now i would like to use a destination to msgraph api in the Context of the User to access User Data visualized by a ui5 App.

    Are the scp Open connectors the Right Tools for this?

    Regards Holger

  • Hi Divya,

     

    After enabling the open connectors service, I tried go to application . However I am getting No Authorization error. I am using cloud foundry instead of Neo. Are there any other steps to get the authorizations .

     

    Thanks in advance

  • You’d probably need to assign the roles (OpenConnectors_ …) to a role collection and then add this collection to your user.

    Having said that – I did exactly that myself – but I  get the same error as you do.

    • Hi Uday, Bernd,

      We continue to face an issue with new user’s Open Connectors trial on Cloud Foundry and our product engineering team is working with priority to resolve the issue. The issue impacts new users activating the service and for existing users no issues.

      As our team works on the fix, sharing an alternative approach for Open Connectors trial.

      Open Connectors is also available in the Neo environment and in case you have an existing Neo trial environment, then you can log into your Neo Environment ( from https://cockpit.hanatrial.ondemand.com/cockpit scroll down to the Environments region and then click Access Neo Trial), navigate to the Services tab and then select Open Connectors service tile ( available under category Integration Suite).

      The functionality of Open Connectors is the same between Neo & Cloud Foundry so you can leverage all the same features in both the environment.

      We will keep you both posted once the Cloud Foundry trial issues are resolved and we sincerly apologize for the inconvenience.

      Bernd Boehm , in case of Open Connectors, the user who activates the service is automatically assigned the necessary roles and therefore additional role assignment is not required for the user who activates Open Connectors. To add in more users to the Open Connectors tenant refer this blog 

      Thanks and Best Regards,

      Divya
