Technical Integration of Business Workflows in Process Visibility – Overview

I recently added a Business Workflow for a Demo and a training in a Process Visibility Scenario  for Workflow Monitoring purposes. In the demo I used a S/4HANA OP System. In this blog I will illustrate the technical Integration and what needs to be done to get a preconfigured Live Process Dashboard also for Business Workflows.

Thanks a lot, to our teams and colleagues helping to configure the integration and realize the demo!


Availability of the integration for SAP ERP, S/4 HANA (Cloud and OP)

The following steps need to be processed.

1. Activate services, run setup, get users and authorizations in your subaccount and S/4HANA System


BTP Cockpit Trial Account


2. Setup a Cloud Connector between the subaccount and the S/4HANA systems


Cloud Connector Administration


Service Keys Process Visibility

3. Get the service keys and endpoints from Process Visibility Capability

4.Export & Import certificates from Process Visibility Capability in

For Export use URL:;

Right Click on Lock in Google Chrome and go to Certificate.

5. Import in S/4HANA with Transaction: STRUST

6. Create and configure integration in
SAP S/4HANA Implementation Guide
