Introducing RAP Business Events

Hi RAP developers,

RAP business events are here! With this new solution for asynchronous communication, which is natively included into the RAP architecture, you can now trigger follow-up processes for significant changes in your RAP business object.

You can provide events and consume events with your RAP BO: As event provider, you define an event in the behavior definition, raise it in the behavior implementation and create an event binding, which maps the event to a namespace, a business object and a business object operation. A RAP BO can consume released events with an Event Consumption Model that establishes design time consumption of an event from the SAP Event Mesh.

The following video gives insights about developing business events in RAP:

Find the complete documentation on RAP business events in the RAP guide: ABAP RESTful Application Programming Model – Business Events.


This feature is available for the following products:

  •  SAP BTP, ABAP environment as of 2211 ​
  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud as of 2211 ​
  • SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud, private edition as of 2022 ​

      Is it possible to add something like "New video alert" to the title of such posts, going forward? It's misleading otherwise as the post itself doesn't offer any introduction... Came here to read some technical information but it's just "hey, here is a video". ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      By the way, this is the blog post from 2022 that looks more like actual introduction:

      Sorry, what "thorough documentation"? You mean a link to SAP Help? The same link is already available in the video description on YT.

      Yes, that's what I referred to. Please let us know in case you miss information in the SAP Help documentation.

      Hi Marina,

      Thank you for sharing the information about RAP events.

      Is it possible to consume RAP events in a non RAP application? If possible how to consume in non RAP application ?
