Key Insights for Subaccount Migration in SAP BTP with SAP Open Connectors
SAP BTP is required to support the option to move subaccounts between different global accounts for external customers, when triggered by a commercial contractual change (not as a self-service). The following blog will inform you about the specifics with regards to Open Connectors, capability of SAP Integration Suite.
1. Good to Know: No Automatic Change to Open Connectors URL
The Open Connectors URL on the SAP Integration Suite provisioning page will not automatically be updated to feature the new global account. Instead, the previous URL will stay intact and will still allow users to log into the Open Connectors tenant.
Note: If you de-activate SAP Open Connectors and re-activate it again, the SAP Open Connectors URL will contain a new global account value. In this case, the previous URL associated with a different global account will not work anymore.
2. Good to Know: Organization Secret Stays Intact
If you move your subaccount to a given global account, the organization secret will not change, but keep the same value of the original global account.
However, the organization secret will change in the following cases:
- If you rotate the organization secret of the tenants (subaccounts) of the original global account.
- If you de-activate SAP Open Connectors and re-activate it.
Note: In this case, the organization secret will not be affected if you rotate the organization secret of the original global account.
Note: Whenver changing the organization secret take care to adapt the consumers of connector or formula instances.
3. Good to Know: Formulas Can Continued to be Used
The formulas of the original global account remain visible and useable for your Open Connectors tenant which has been moved to another global account.
Yet, Consider the following implications when migrating subaccounts, where OCN is used, to another global account:
- All tenants are moved: There is no implication.
- Not all tenants are moved: Follow the following steps to avoid complications.
- Export all formulas and custom connectors.
- De-activate SAP Open Connectors in the moved subaccounts. Re-activate SAP Open Connectors again.
- Import all formulas and custom connectors.
- Create all connector instances and formula instances manually.
Important: It is highly recommended to follow the steps described above to avoid complications:
- If your formulas are shared across tenants (subaccounts) in the original global account, then they are shared between those tenants (subaccounts) and the moved tenants (subaccounts).
- Formulas can be modified and deleted in the tenants (subaccounts) of the original global account or in the moved tenants (subaccounts) of the new global account with impacting all tenants (subaccounts) where those formulas are visible.
In summary, you will get the information of changes of your tenant and how to avaid complications during subaccount migration. Reach out or comment below this blog or me for further information or question!
