Fully automated configuration workflow “Asset Intelligence Network”

First _fully_automated_ Scenario Configuration Workflow

With the new Scenario Configuration Workflow “Asset Intelligence Network – S/4HANA On Premise Integration (AIN)” it is now possible to configure this scenario with just a few clicks.

The framework, to make use of this scenario configuration, is the well know Cloud Integration Automation Service.

So, instead of doing step-by-step configuration manually, you can now make use of the automation’s that are build into the workflow and are started directly once the necessary parameters have been provided.

Enter the Cloud Integration Automation Service Launchpad from your SAP BTP Sub-account. You need to  subscribe to / activate CIAS before you can do so. Here is a blog that describes the steps to get there:

How to activate Cloud Integration Automation service on SAP BTP

Once you have access to Cloud Integration Service Launchpad, you can start to select one of the available scenarios.

Step-by-Step

Select the Scenario and System(s)

First you choose the Asset Intelligence Network Setup on BTP scenario from the list of scenarios in the Cloud Integration Automation Service:

Choose the AIN Scenario

 

Next you see an overview of the scenario and select the systems for the integration scenario:

Select%20Systems%20for%20this%20Scenario

Select Systems for this Scenario

 

For the AIN Scenario, there is only one system to select, the SAP BTP Tenant:

Select SAP Business Technology Platform System

 

Select how the scenario shall be executed and generate the workflow

Here comes the important difference to other scenario configuration workflows. When generating the workflow, the options are:

  • Background Execution
  • Step-by-Step Execution

In order to start the automation, you choose Background Execution:

“Background Execution”

 

Some additional parameters for the automated execution need to be entered (User/Password). Other parameters are pre-filled (e.g. Names/Descriptions) but can be changed.

Additional%20Parameters

Enter additional Parameters

 

The system will ask once more to generate the workflow from the predefined SAP BTP account and the execution of the tasks will then start automatically.

 

Monitor the progress

Once the workflow was fully generated and the background execution has started, you can monitor the progress in the Scenario Execution Overview:

 

In the Scenario Execution Overview you can see the progress of the workflow and each step. Status are “Completed”, “Execution automation” and “Yet to be executed”.

Scenario Monitoring View

 

Check the results and the summary of the execution

After successful execution you can view and download the summary of the scenario execution. Here you will find what tasks were carried out by which user in which system at what time:

If all went well, the configuration is now complete.
