my team and I have been working for about 3 years now with the SAP Cloud Platform Integration.
To make it short: Usability is not the core competence of SAP and so I decided to improve the daily life of my team with a plugin for the Chrome Browser to hack some usability improvements into the CPI.
Switch on tracing
This is now done with one click from the integration flow designer 🙂 I counted at least 4 clicks before including open a new window.
You get a small dragable sidebar with the last 10 message status directly in the integration flow designer.
View Infos and Trace
The small sidebar I mentioned before has two buttons to open a new window that brings you directly where you want to go. Of course, the trace is only available if you activated it before. But this is only one click away 🙂
How does it look like
If you installed the plugin, you will have two more buttons in the integration flow designer:
And if you press “Messages”:
Install directly from Chrome Web Store
After installation, you see the icon in the browser bar.
At first it is grey but it activates when you are on a CPI page. The new buttons will be added automatically when you are on the integration flow designer.
My time is very limited so you are welcome to contribute with good comments, finding bugs or pull requests. More infos on the github page:
Ideas and contributions for new features are always welcome.
- Add possibility to show errors, payloads, properties and headers from messages directly in the design screen
Things to improve
- Find a better way to detect url changes
- Improve design
There are probably many of them. Please leave a message.
I hope you like this project and it would be great if you leave some helpful comments.
