Is it possible to use Successfactors SFAPI(SOAP) or ODATA API with ABAP w/o SAP PI or HCI?

Dear Expert.

SAP SuccessFactors provides ODATA API and SFAPI web service for integration.

My question is below;

Is it possible for ABAP to control Successfactors ODATA or SFAPI(SOAP) without SAP PI or HCI?

I think that it is possible with 'Enterprise service' as my previous experiences.

SFAPI WSDL is

and Succcessfactors ODATA API is

    Yes, that should be possible. Both SOAP-based web services and ODATA resources can be consumed using ABAP code, so if your client's integration policies allow for external connections from ECC without a middleware, you could implement the integration directly in your ABAP code.

    Hi,

    We are trying to consume SuccessFactors Odata Services in ABAP using the samples of other Blogs. The issue we have is that we get an error when we try to connect to the url https://api2.successfactors.eu/odata/v2/. We created an external connection in SM59 and we get the following message "ICM_HTTP_SSL_ERROR". Any idea of what is missing or we need to install any kind of certificate or something?
