The MDP Salesforce Bulk API v2 Adapter for SAP Cloud Platform Integration

Introducing

MDP’s Salesforce adapter dramatically reduces the time, effort, and complexity of inbound bulk message handling integration scenarios between SAP and non-SAP systems to Salesforce.

 

How it Works

The MDP Salesforce Adapter for CPI leverages Bulk API v2 to execute SOQL(Salesforce Object Query Language) queries to Salesforce from SAP/Non-SAP systems or push data from Salesforce to SAP/Non-SAP systems

They say a picture paints a thousand words so let’s dive right in and take a look at the before and after pics of your Integration Flows.

This is how your iFlow looks without the MDP Salesforce Adapter ☹

This is how your iFlow looks using the MDP Salesforce adapter 😊

 

 

Looks a lot cleaner and simpler, right? Now let’s take a closer look at the processes involved for this scenario:

First off,  the standard method.

 

  • XML to CSV (Optional)
  • Get Session Id with SOAP API or use Oauth2 Authentication Method.
  • Create Job and put sessionId to HTTP Header.
  • Store Job ID (optional)
  • Load Data and put sessionId to HTTP Header.
  • Close Job and put sessionId to HTTP Header.

 

Now compare the process for the same integration scenario using MDP’s Salesforce Bulk API v2 Adapter for SAP Cloud Platform Integration.

  • XML to CSV(Optional)
  • Send Data
  • Store Job ID(Optional)
