ABAP Pipeline Engine integration option provides direct communication from SAP S/4HANA cloud -> SAP Data Intelligence to extract and integrate the data. Repository with ABAP operators are pre-delivered by SAP in SAP Data Intelligence. ABAP CDS Reader operator reads and extracts the data using CDS View data extractors. The SAP S/4HANA Cloud Communication Scenario for ABAP Pipeline Engine is SAP_COM_0532 – enables the access to the CDS view extraction via ABAP Pipeline Engine(available with SAP S/4HANA CE 2002).
