  • Yes, these web services do exist but so what? What value do they actually add for the customers?

    The introduction to the blog makes it seem as if due to the goodness of their heart SAP caved in to the customer demands and created these web services. I rather doubt that’s the story here.

    These are SOAP web services, SOA architecture and Enterprise Services was all the rage 10+ years ago. I’m not sure why SAP generated these in 2015 (?) but since they all belong to some FI Payroll package, I’m guessing it was for internal purposes or for some odd interface. (Which also explains why there are only 25 services on the list while there are hundreds of BAPIs in SAP.)

    It takes only a minute to generate a web service from an RFC enabled function module, including BAPI. It’s not an achievement and no one has to wait for SAP to do that. At this point though, it just wouldn’t make any sense to do that since technology evolved already. There are now OData services (which can also be easily generated for an FM but it is not recommended), CDS views, BOPF, etc.

    If an SAP customer is running an S/4 system and are looking for standard web services then they should check SAP API Business Hub, not SE84.

    Please consider doing a little more research before posting, going forward.

    Thank you.

    P.S. Edit: this blog is assigned about 10 tags. From what I see, it has nothing to do with more than half of them (Ariba? why?). Kindly show some consideration for the readers and use only the appropriate tags.

  • If something is available standard it is always best. Creating Custom is not the way to go and I think while doing Consulting you should be knowing that. Have you worked with Ariba? Ariba uses Webservice and webservice is still used by most companies which are running ECC.
