Extensions for SAP Build Process Automation – Actions from CAP Node.js Service
More information about the SAP Cloud Application Programming Model: Welcome to CAP
In this blog I will introduce a tutorial how you can develop and deploy a CAP Node.js Service with simple functions and create an Action Project.The goal is to cover all the necessary steps to consume the CAP Service API functions in a Process, not to proivde a real use case.
In the tutorial you will build and execute a process which combines simple no-code actions for a CAP service API.
This is part of a blog series for Actions:
SAP Process Automation – Consume APIs with <no-code> using Actions.
Actions – High Level Architecture
We introduced the Action concept to simplify the experience for Citizen Developers to consume APIs without coding (no-code). Here an high level overview of the architecture.
Detailed information for CAP Business Service and Action Editor, the consumption should be known from other blogs (Your first simple Action Project: End to End) and will be covered only high level.
Now it’s time to get started with the hands-on experience of this developer tutorial: Extensions for SAP Build Process Automation – Actions from CAP Node.js Service
Hi Thomas Jentsch
Thanks for the blog.
I've a question regarding an error I am getting. I've created an Action Project to expose an API from my service. The API works fine from the Action Editor. I've then published it and used in a Process Automation project.
The action executed successfully but it's not giving me the any output data.
Can you please help me here??
see Other Blog discussion with screenshots.
How does the definition in the Output Tab of the action look like ?
If the Body is empty, that's the issue.
