Building Extensions for SAP S/4HANA Cloud using APIs and Events
UPDATE: 25 March 2021 – the series has been completely revised for 2021!
Creation of cloud-first applications to extend core LoB solutions is a hot topic right now.
If you attended TechEd 2019 or at least managed to catch the Vegas keynote online you’ll have heard all about it and seen the live demo with Rui Nogueira. If not you can watch the keynote demo replay and get more context here.
So having seen what’s possible your next step would be to try this out “hands-on” for yourself, right?
However you might be wondering where to start and exactly which technology components get used where and exactly how to fit them all together?
We’ve just published a new tutorial series covering a simple end-to-end extension scenario which you can access here: Building Extensions for SAP S/4HANA Cloud using APIs and Events
The scenario involves the extension app picking up whenever a sales order is changed in SAP S/4HANA Cloud, accessing the details and persisting them in SAP HANA Cloud for further processing and showing the results in SAP Fiori.
Tutorials cover a simple scenario that incorporates key aspects of developing side-by-side extensions to SAP S/4HANA Cloud. Components used include SAP API Business Hub, SAP Business Technology Platform, SAP S/4HANA Cloud Extensibility, SAP Event Mesh, SAP HANA Cloud, SAP Launchpad, and SAP Cloud Application Programming Model (CAP).
So whether you’ve already got access and want to get going or you’re simply interested in seeing exactly how to get started hopefully these videos will prove useful.
You can access the tutorials directly as follows:
- Getting Started
- Register Systems
- Consume APIs
- Consume Events
- Create Extension App
- Review Extension App
- Deploy Extension App
- Ongoing Development
- Local Development
If you’re new to SAP Business Technology Platform itself then you might also want to check out our onboarding video tutorial series which should hopefully get you up to speed pretty quickly.
Good luck in creating your own extension applications in SAP Business Technology Platform and let us know your feedback in the comments section below!
