Custom Employee webservice integration.

Hi there!

I need to integrate Employees to C4C but I cant use standard webservices.

As far as I know, i cant edit employee informations if external replication is enabled by scope.

So, I'm trying to create a webservice in the app studio for the employee BO. I checked only "Create" operation.

I'm using SOAPUI to test my webservice and I'm facing the following error:

<env:Envelope xmlns:env="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope">

   <env:Header/>

   <env:Body>

      <n0:EmployeeCreateConfirmation_sync xmlns:n0="http://sap.com/xi/SAPGlobal20/Global" xmlns:prx="urn:sap.com:proxy:LAW:/1SAI/TAS571E134D8C3DAF4759DA:804">

         <Log>

            <MaximumLogItemSeverityCode>3</MaximumLogItemSeverityCode>

            <Item>

               <TypeID>018(//APBP/SP/)</TypeID>

               <CategoryCode>INC.BOI</CategoryCode>

               <SeverityCode>3</SeverityCode>

               <Note>EMPLOYEE role for business partner 00000000008000000109 missing</Note>

            </Item>

         </Log>

      </n0:EmployeeCreateConfirmation_sync>

   </env:Body>

</env:Envelope>

When I choose the fields to be integrated i didn't find anything related to business partner role.

Anyone knows what could be wrong? Am I missing something?

Is it possible to create an employee and its respective business partner using a custom webservice?

Is there any other option to achieve this (integrate employee and allow employee editing)?

Thanks in advance.

    Try using the odata explorer to create a simple employee create odata service.

    Hello again!

    I'm working again in the same webservice but now I need to update the employee I've created.

    Here is the request example:

    <soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope" xmlns:glob="http://sap.com/xi/SAPGlobal20/Global">

       <soap:Header/>

       <soap:Body>

          <glob:EmployeeUpdateRequest_sync>

             <BasicMessageHeader>

             </BasicMessageHeader>

             <Employee RelationshipListCompleteTransmissionIndicator="false" IdentificationListCompleteTransmissionIndicator="true" EmployeeTypeListCompleteTransmissionIndicator="true">

                <UUID>00163e07-a7ae-1ee5-a5ad-aba56b3347fa</UUID>

                <Identification ActionCode="06">

                   <EmployeeID>123457</EmployeeID>

                </Identification>

                <CurrentCommon ActionCode="02">

                   <Person>

                      <Name>

                         <GivenName>INTEGRATION 1001</GivenName>

                         <FamilyName>SOAP UI</FamilyName>

                      </Name>

                   </Person>

                </CurrentCommon>

                <EmployeeType ActionCode="06">

                   <InternalEmployeeIndicator>true</InternalEmployeeIndicator>

                   <ValidityPeriod>

                      <StartDate>2015-10-01</StartDate>

                      <EndDate>2015-12-01</EndDate>

                   </ValidityPeriod>

                </EmployeeType>

             </Employee>

          </glob:EmployeeUpdateRequest_sync>

       </soap:Body>

    </soap:Envelope>

    Unfortunately, the following error occurs:

    <env:Envelope xmlns:env="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope">

       <env:Header/>

       <env:Body>

          <n0:EmployeeUpdateConfirmation_sync xmlns:n0="http://sap.com/xi/SAPGlobal20/Global" xmlns:prx="urn:sap.com:proxy:LAW:/1SAI/TAS0260AB112F39B5A5763E:804">

             <Log>

                <MaximumLogItemSeverityCode>3</MaximumLogItemSeverityCode>

                <Item>

                   <TypeID>015(/CSG_RUNTIME/)</TypeID>

                   <CategoryCode>SEI.SCV</CategoryCode>

                   <SeverityCode>3</SeverityCode>

                   <Note>Key for Common node missing in Request Message</Note>

                </Item>

             </Log>

          </n0:EmployeeUpdateConfirmation_sync>

       </env:Body>

    </env:Envelope>

    I checked the Common node in the webservice businessObjectView but it doesn't appear in Update operation.

    Any suggestion?

    Thanks in advance.

    Alexandre.
