Dear integration consultants,
SAP Cloud Platform Integration has a useful way to parameterize Integration Flows known as “Partner Directory”. Currently, the only way to work with Partner Directory service is directly calling OData services with developer tools or programs.
Here is a tool that helps you work with the Partner Directory. Currently, it is a read-only tool for validating created Partners and String Parameters. In the future, we are planning to add more features. Your interest and comments play a great role here.
Update: Now there is another version that is much easier to use: https://blogs.sap.com/2020/05/11/cpi-partner-directory-user-interface-in-supereasy-extension/
You can start using this tool in 5 seconds if you already have Node.js installed. You can install Node.js from the official website: link. It also installs the command-line tool “npm”. Then you can run:
npm install partnerui-cpi -g
That’s all it takes to install the tool.
