BODS and SAP Cloud API

Hi Guys,

I want to call SAP standard cloud API to load data into local HANA via BODS (local). I think it is kind of different from HCI-DS. Is there any good material?

Basically, I want to run the concur "report"API and extract the data (with filters).

https://api.sap.com/package/ConcurExpense?section=Artifacts

I am not sure if it is the right site or I need to go to concur website.

Thanks!

    If you would like to connect Data Services to a Concur API webservice you can create a Restful Webservice datastore.
    You may need to configure the Oauth 2.0 for the security portion of Concur API and add the grammars response for the WADL.
    Please see this article to create REST web service Datastore.

    My suggestion is to test the WADL connection in SoapUI Rest project first then mimic the connections in Data Services Designer.

    @David white: You can connect with API using User-defined transform in sap BODS, which will involve python code, as an alternate method you can use the method suggested by Jessica.Please check the below link for detail description:
