Connector Builder Guide – Using a Configuration Value in a Parameter
Open Connectors consists of over 170 connectors to 3rd Party Applications natively embedded in the SAP ecosystem. If the Connector you need does not exist in the catalog, you can build it quickly with Connector Builder. This instruction guide will walk you through using this tool, with concrete examples throughout. The beginning, Part 1, can be found here.

The token here represents the configuration key and its value (what the user originally entered) will be substituted here and appended to the header.
