SFSF Integration

Dear Scn Users,

Having some basic questions on SFSF integration.

1.Do we need to use SOAP look UDF for login like we do for SFDC or Login request interface with AXIS adapter will take care of it?

2.If we have SFSF adapter can we use the same instead of Axis or for some scenarios we need axis and for some SFSF?.

3.If anyone has worked on recuriting scenarios or any sample documents are available please share the same.

  • Hello Raghu,

    Whether to use SOAP Axis or SFSF Adapter depends on,

    Standard Content

    • SAP uses a mix of SOAP Axis, SFSF Adapter & ODATA Adapter in its Integration Content.
    • Hence, if you want to use Standard Integration Content from SAP, you need to use what SAP has used.


    Custom Integration

    • This depends on what kind of API you are calling on SFSF.
    • Some API's are available as plain Webservices and hence you can use SOAP Axis to perform your session handling and SOAP Axis Adapters.
    • You can also use SFSF Adapter with SOAP protocol and that will enable you to model your entity, generate your custom XSD and use the same in PI.
    • Likewise you might need to perform ODATA or REST Call and in such cases the SFSF Adapter will do the trick.

    In summary - if you are doing a full blown SFSF project, you will have to use the SFSF Adapter as not all standard patterns fit a customer's use case!

  • thanks Bhavesh!!!

    I am looking for Recruitment Data integration,I think standard content with Axis adapter should be good.Let me know your thoughts on this.

  • Yes , standard Integration Flows for Recruitment only use SOAP Axis and hence you are covered there. Below is what I have from my previous notes for the Standard Integration Flows For Recruitment ( over a year old and hence do check SAP guides for latest set of Interfaces if anything has changed )

    Hi Raghu,

    PFB my inputs.

    1. SAP Predelivered content is available for SFSF Integration and SOAP Axis adapter will take care of the login request interface, wherein the Set-Cookie attribute needs to be handled via the adapter modules.

    2.If they have RDS content been installed in the system, we can go for Axis adapter and all the objects are readily available with the Predelivered content.

    Regards,

    Ezhil.

    Hello Ezhil,

    Thanks!!!

    So soap axis is better that SFSF adapter right?

    And for each scenario one channel and one common channel for login if I am not wrong?

    Hi Raghu,

    yes, 1 Soap Axis channel for Login Interface and another Channel for remaining scenarios(upsert, logout operations).

    So which RDS content version you are using in your landscape?
