Hands-On Video Tutorials

What You Will Learn

SAP Fieldglass is a cloud-based Vendor Management System to manage services procurement and external workforce management programs.

In this video series, Tahir Hussain Babar (Bob) from the SAP HANA Academy & Digital Partner Engineering, will show how to setup and use SAP Fieldglass Connectors (or APIs) to post / get data from SAP Fieldglass. To demonstrate this, we will use the Integration Connector Wizard within Integration Tools in the SAP Fieldglass Configuration Manager to create / edit / secure a Connector / API. The Connector we’ll setup is one which will enable you to post a Job Posting to SAP Fieldglass from Postman (or any application).
