Integration Suite – Simplified Onboarding and Provisioning

Introduction

SAP Cloud Platform Integration Suite is an open, versatile, modular and enterprise-grade iPaaS supporting a comprehensive set of enterprise wide integration scenarios.

In this blog, we would like to inform you about two key aspects of Integration Suite that you can consume starting from May 2020 release onward.

    1. Simplified Onboarding
    2. Harmonized Provisioning

Let’s get started. 😊

July Release Update :

With July 2020 release, you would see harmonized user experience of all capabilities via Integration Suite Launchpad.

Simplified Onboarding

Integration Suite includes powerful capabilities like Cloud Integration, API Management , Open Connectors  and Integration Advisor  to enable A2A, B2B, B2G and API-based integrations.

The table below displays different capabilities offered by the different editions of subscription

      We also offer the new Integration Suite in a CPEA (Cloud Platform Enterprise Agreement) pricing model as well.

 

NOTE: If your subaccount has subscriptions to Process Integration, API Management, and/or Open Connector services, please subscribe to the Integration Suite service in a new subaccount

Harmonized Provisioning

SAP Cloud Platform Integration Suite tenant can be provisioned by simply navigating to Integration Suite SaaS Application tile in the Cloud Platform Account Cockpit.

Let us take a closer look at the different steps involved in provisioning an Integration Suite tenant.

The diagram below summarizes the steps involved:

  • Hello Appala,

    Thanks for sharing this. I think it is very important for the CPI Suite to have a clear and documented capability, licensing, pricing options.

    Regards,

  • Hi,

    thanks for the blog. Does this change anything for existing subscriptions and is there a difference between Neo and Cloud Foundry tenants?

    Also some other questions:

    • Do you have pricing infos?
    • How many queues are included?
    • How many worker nodes are included per CPI tenant? Or does one tenant mean one worker node?

    Best regards

     

    • Dear Markus,,

       

      Pricing information is available at sap.com estimator or you can reach out to your Account Manager. Integration Suite provides inbuilt JMS queue capabilities and it is included in license.

    • Hello Murali,

      SaaS application entitlement management is not available yet for productive usage. As of now, it is available only on Trial landscape. Integration Suite tile would automatically appear on all subaccounts on productive landscapes without the need to assign entitlement. Nevertheless, i added a note on it.

      Thanks,

      Appala

  • Is this applicable for NEO as well ? Especially when customers are migrating let us say from one data center to other…they might need both subscriptions to be active until the duration of the migration.

  • Hello, this makes sense as it simplifies entire onboarding and dont have to switch between different subaccounts for navigating in and out.. i also see these services are available as individual “services” and part of suite.. is there anything we should think before we enable it within integration suite capability or individual one?

    • Hello Subash,

      In a given subaccount, you can either activate the services via the individual tiles (or) all via Integration suite tile.

       

      Thanks,

      Appala

  • Hello,

    At the step 2. Click Activate to provision the selected capabilities.

    I receive the error “UPDATE_FAILED”

    image

    If i try to “subscribe” again it give this error

    image

    there is something that i can do to solve that issue?

     

    Regards.

  • Hi Appala Naidu Uppada ,
