Call deployed CPI iflow from BTP sapui5 application by using ajax

Cloud process integration can be used to do process integration, but also can be used to simplify development . We can put together backend service in an iflow for a front end application like SAP UI5 . Today I will  demo the process .  To simplify the demo, I will demo the process base on the blog Trigger a Workflow Instance from a SAPUI5 Application developed in a Multitarget Application by Mariajose Martinez .

Step 1,  Deploy an iflow in Cloud process integration :

The following is the code in script1.grouvy

import java.util.HashMap;
def Message processData(Message message) {
def body = message.getBody(java.lang.String)
    def messageLog = messageLogFactory.getMessageLog(message)
    if (messageLog != null) {
        messageLog.addAttachmentAsString('ui5message', body, 'text/plain')
    return message

After deployment, the runtime is in the following screenshot :

Step 2, create destination  for  cloud process integration runtime service key in BTP cockpit .

Step 3, Build and deploy the code base on the blog Trigger a Workflow Instance from a SAPUI5 Application developed in a Multitarget Application by Mariajose Martinez . . Make some the following adjustment for Iflow rest api call.

Please note the following rout is added in xs-app.json under the module ui5workflowproject-approuter, Not under the module ui5applicationmodule .

Step 4 , Test from deployed sapui5 application


Step 5, Check the result in Cloud Process Integration


The End!

Thank you for your time for reading!


Best regards!

      Hi Jacky Liu,


      Have you tried doing the same process with a managed app-router application instead of the standalone as you have used in your case?

      Hi,Rajat, Jain,


      I have not tried that. If we can use postman to test the api, it means we can use Ajax to call the API . If we need to test a managed App-router, we need to figure out the API URL , User account first .


      Best regards!
