SAP Commissions – Embedded Analytics/SAC API Endpoints

Dear All,

In this blog, we’ll take a look at how you can utilize SAP Analytics Cloud APIs (also for Embedded Analytics) and understand all the endpoints for you to automate or to get some insights from the data which is modeled from report or story.

By the end of this tutorial, you will know all different endpoints which provides more information for you.

The SAP Analytics Cloud REST API follows the OpenAPI specification.

The API allows third-party applications to access data stored on an SAP Analytics Cloud tenant. The API is best used for requesting small amounts of data in real time. You must have a tenant URL and SAP Analytics Cloud user for the next step.

Prerequisites

  • You must have a SAP Analytics Cloud tenant URL.
  • You must have a SAP Analytics Cloud user.
  • You must configure basic authentication against the token service.

The base URL you use in a REST API request is different for each customer. The base URL can be found by appending an API endpoint to your tenant URL.

https://<TENANT_URL>.<REGION>.sapanalytics.cloud/

Example : https://ore7x8mxycxsdvfrbyb6fr3.us10.sapanalytics.cloud


Authentication Procedure

To obtain an OAuth access token by sending an HTTP POST, request to your system’s token URL.

You must include the URL parameter: /?grant_type=client_credentials.

You must also include the following HTTP header: Authorization: Basic Base64-encoding-of-<OAuthClientID>:<Secret>, where <OAuthClientID> is the OAuth Client ID you set when you created the client in SAP Analytics Cloud and <Secret> is the secret value.

  • Authorization: Bearer <Access_Token>
  • x-sap-sac-custom-auth: true
  • x-csrf-token: fetch
