In this blog, I would like to talk about the new feature in SAP Cloud Platform Integration, the Context-Sensitive help that has been made available in the integration flow web editor with the May 2019 release (v2.53.x/v3.11.x).
Integration flow web editor plays a vital role for the integration developers in helping them to design and develop integration flows in Design view. And when one needs to know more about any of the flow steps/adapter within the editor, that’s where our help content comes into the picture.
Since the integration capabilities are vast, so is our help content and, searching for context-specific information can sometimes be, cumbersome and time-consuming.
Let’s say an integration developer wishes to know about defining a script for message processing. Earlier, to seek such information, the developer would launch the SAP help portal for Cloud Platform Integration and search for information related to Script. But now, with this Context-sensitive feature, the integration flow web editor has been enhanced to provide you with the relevant information one-click away.
All you need to do is, just select the Script shape in the web editor and click on the help icon that appears in the property sheet.
The help content will be displayed in a new tab or window based on your browser settings.
The feature is also accessible while viewing the integration flows in the non-editable state from Discover and Monitor views.
This feature plays a significant part in improving developer productivity.
