How to use the RAP Generator

In this blog I would like to provide a short click-trough so that you know how to generate a RAP BO using the RAP Generator that I have described in detail in this blog:

https://blogs.sap.com/2020/05/17/the-rap-generator/

In the latest systems I have already updated the RAP Generator and now it is possible to upload the JSON file using a UI. The new upload functionality is based on the blog How to Upload Data to SAP Cloud Platform, ABAP Environment by @rich.heilman .

 

  • Log on to a trial system
  • Create a package (e.g. ZRAP_####)
  • Add the package ZRAP_GENERATOR to your Favorite Packages.
  • Navigate to Connectivity –> HTTP Services –> ZRAP_GENERATOR.
  • Klick on URL
  • In the UI that opens you can
    1. use the Browse button to search for a JSON file that you have prepared and then
    2. press the button Upload File and generate BO.
  • After waiting for 1 or 2 minutes (if no error message shows up)
  • you will get a popup telling you that your RAP BO has been generated successfully

 

Prerequisites

 

  • In the editor of your choice replace the values for following parameters to your needs
    • suffix
    • package

  • After saving be sure to change the extension of your file to *.json.
