APM(ProducerPro) API Sync to SAP Commissions – Part 1

Dear Readers,

The purpose of this article is to demonstrate and explain how Integration between Agent Performance Management(Producer Pro) to SAP Commissions is through Sync process which syncs the Producer related data to Commissions via the Commissions API(Rest API v2) with Auto scheduler.


 

Note ⚠️ :The process is a one way sync from APM to Commissions and not from Commissions to APM.

Part 1 : Enable Sync and Setup API endpoints for Commission Sync

Prerequisites

  • ⚙️ APM Admin user should enable Sync Option and Configuration Settings
  • ⚙️ SAP Commission User must have Admin role to setup Sync (Assign Role)
  • ⚙️ RestAPI role should be assigned to user created from Commission – User Administration
  • ⚙️ APM to Commissions Sync must be enabled in the Global Features section in Producer Manager
  • ⚙️ In Channel Management,  Objects in Contract Type, Status Code should be created       through RestAPI endpoints.

How to enable Sync ?

Before you can get started you need to ensure the Producer Manager to Commissions Sync has been enabled.

Go to Administrator > Configuration > Global Features

Enable checkbox for Sync

 

Click Save to complete the enabling process and you will see it later with Sync

Setup Sync (API Endpoint Configuration )

Navigate to Administrator → Sync → Sync Target Search. Click + to create a new Sync Target.

New form will be displayed to fill out the following fields:

SyncTargetId: <ANY thing you can enter>
SyncTargetName: <ANY Name to identify the running process >
SyncTargetType:  Commissions
RetryAttempts: Defaults to 0. The value 0 indicates the sync will only try to sync an audit record once with no retries on failure. Indicate a value greater than 0 if you want Producer Manager Sync to retry a failed sync record for a specific number of retries.
SyncTargetAuthEndPoint: The authentication endpoint URL for the Commissions region.
SyncTargetEndPoint: The end point URL for the Commissions region.
SyncTargetUserId: The Commissions API endpoint UserID
SyncTargetPwd: The Commissions API endpoint password.
SyncTargetAuthUserId: The Commissions Auth end point UserID.
SyncTargetAuthPwd: The Commissions Auth endpoint password
ReferenceRetryAttempts: -1 is the default value which means the process will indefinitely try to resync the reference failures until something is syncing newly. If the user wants to restrict the number of retries, they can specify the value here

 

The Sync Target Detail has two sets of servers that you need to fill out

SyncTargetEndPoint

https://tenantid.callidusondemand.com/TrueComp-SaaS/services/v2

SyncTargetAuthEndPoint

https://tenantid.callidusondemand.com/CallidusPortal/services/v2

The fields SyncTargetUserId & SyncTargetAuth UserId may have different values based upon how the server is setup.

The value of SyncTargetEntity.SyncTargetEntity should be the name of the API end point as defined in the Commissions API documentation

Once the required details above have been entered, click Save button. Once the form has been saved, click the Test button. This will validate that the detail entered are correct. If the test connection fails troubleshoot that the end point URLs are correct and that the UserID’s and passwords are correct.

      Hi Yogananda Muthaiah ,

       

      I would like to ask if this SAP Commissions API is related to SAP ICM Software (CallidusCloud ICM)?

      Hi KIMBERLY IRIS Mari MANZANO

      This is related to ProducerPro of CallidusCloud Product and after SAP was acquired - It was renamed to Agent Performance Management(APM).  SAP Commissions API will be used integration.

      Also, CallidusCloud Product has Insurance Compensation Management (ICM) and SAP has the same product Name ICM.

      Hi Yogananda Muthaiah ,

       

      Thank you for responding on my concern.

      Actually, I've been doing some research related on that SAP APM -  CallidusCloud Insurance Incentive Compensation Management.. and seem to can't find enough documents to refer.

      Thank you very much for the answer!

      Hi Yogananda Muthaiah ,

      I'm trying to look on how to configure SAP APM with CallidusCloud Insurance ICM.. from end to end process.

       

      The only reference I got is the videos from this list https://microlearning.opensap.com/category/SAP+Agent+Performance+Management/173267331 but what I'm trying to find is a demo process on how to configure the SAP APM just like how we configure SAP Sales Cloud Commissions on getting their incentives and commission amount.

      I apologized on my way of explaining. I'm new to SAP still learning..

      I'm new with SAP so I'm having a hard time to explain it properly. I apologize
