SAP Cloud Platform Integration

INTRODUCTION TO CLOUD PLATFORM INTEGRATION

Cloud Platform Integration (CPI) is SAP’s cloud-based middleware that allows integration between cloud and on-premise applications with third-party SAP and non-SAP products. It is an open PAAS (Platform-as-a-service).

There are 5 steps in Cloud Platform Integration:

  1. Create and test a basic IFlow
  2. Content modifier and stimulation process
  3. Create number ranges in CPI
  4. Create data stores in CPI and work with it.
  5. General and Iterating splitters with XML Modifiers

 

  1. Create and test a basic IFlow.
  • Create and develop IFlow Artifact
  • Setup the mail and create the credential in CPI
  • Maintain mail artifact in CPI
  • Test the IFlow
  1. Content Modifier and stimulation process.
  • Content Modifier: Using a content modifier developer can add more data to the existing payload or message processing.
  • Stimulation Process: Simulating the processing of a function, expression, or action is useful to test the object’s behaviour in a sandbox environment.
  1. Create number ranges in CPI
  • Number Ranges: They automatically increment a particular variable and can easily be used in iflows to highlight the count of the message flow to receiver.
  1. Create data stores in CPI and work with it.
  • Data Stores: Data Store operations are a way of Persisting messages to access the same at a later point in time

 

  1. General and Iterating splitters with XML Modifiers
  • General Splitters: The general splitter splits a composite message comprising N messages into N individual messages, each containing one message with the enveloping elements of the composite message
  • Iterating splitters: The iterating splitter splits a composite message into a series of messages without copying the enveloping elements of the composite Message.
