This was a request from one of my customer, they wanted to see a half interface from a SuccessFactors systems to a SFTP system. As you’ll see, this is very simple and straightforward.
In the followingt video, I will demonstrate how you can quickly set up a half interface with the SAP Business Technology Platform with the integration suite to extract data from an SAP SuccessFactors systems to a file in a SFTP system.
Let’s begin! 🙂
First let’s connect to our SAP BTP integration Suite and create a new integration flow.
Click on the newly created integration flow to open and edit it.
Enter the desired endpoint for the call, you can use anything you would like. I’m using “/SFSF_SFTP_DEMO”. Then uncheck CSRF protected.
Add an new step by clicking on the plus sign in the start event.
Let’s add a request reply. Search for request and add it by clicking “Request Reply”, this will be our call to our SuccessFactors system.
In the same way by clicking the “+” sign of the request reply, add a receiver and place it right under the request reply. This is our call to our SuccessFactors system.
Choose your protocol, in my case, I’m using SOAP.
Here I use a credential name that I set up the the security material of the integration suite. Just as a reminder, this is where you can find it.
Let’s add a content modifier after this converter by clicking again the “+” sign.
From the End event, drag the arrow to the receiver, this will be our SFTP system. Choose SFTP as the adapter type.
We are ready to save and to deploy our integration flow.
Once you have your token, let’s test this this in Postman.
This looks perfect! Let’s verify that the file was indeed pushed to our SFTP system!
