I am looking for information about consuming a REST Web Service from an SAP BW 7.3 Web Service Datasource.

The REST Web Service would exist in a non-SAP System and will be called from SAP BW 7.3 Web Service data source.

I don't even know if its possible from SAP BW 7.3 or not as SOAMANAGER seems to be only about SOAP but I could be wrong.

A Step by Step guide would be a great help.

Thanks in advance!

Suresh,

You cannot call REST web service using SAP BW Source datastore as you can only use IDOCS, Open Hub Tables and Tables.

Below are two methods:

1) Using HTTP Adapter: You can achieve this using a HTTP Adapter Datastore. You need to create a HTTP Adapter instance in DS Management Console and then call the REST web service with parameters.

Follow the document

2) Using Web Service Rest Datastore: If you dont want to use HTTP Adapter you can directly use REST Web Service Datastore.
