Pls help to answer in following queries.

1. Which one is free i.e. no License required?

2. Which one is recommended in what scenarios?

3. Does both requires CA SSL Certificates and Public IP System for HTTPS communication.

4. Can I Integrate SuccessFactors / C4C with SAP ERP using OP Cloud Connector via HCI? Meaning can data flow SF --> HCI --> CC --> ERP and vice versa?

SAP Web Dispatcher is a proxy server installed onPrem and can assist with certain challenges including CORS issues if you are connecting to multiple endpoints onPrem

SAP Cloud Connector (SCC) avails your onPrem SAP Landscape to the SAP Cloud Platform and therefore all its associated services. SAP Cloud Connector is free.

SSL is optional but supported (configurable). Your ABAP Servers that SCC would need to have SSL certificated created (straight forward).

Hi Alim,

I believe the following documentation will be able to assist you in your questions:

SAP Web Dispatcher - https://help.sap.com/viewer/683d6a1797a34730a6e005d1e8de6f22/7.5.9/en-US/488fe37933114e6fe10000000a421937.html?q=web%20dispatcher

SAP Cloud Connector - https://help.sap.com/viewer/DRAFT/cca91383641e40ffbe03bdc78f00f681/Cloud/en-US/e6c7616abb5710148cfcf3e75d96d596.html?q=cloud%20connecgtor

These documents should clarify exactly what the Web Dispatcher and Cloud Connector are used for and what scenarios, if you have any further questions on these then please let me know.

Best Regards,

Brendan O'Flynn

Hi Alim,

As Brendan provided, you can check the detailed help document.

If we say the difference in one word, the SAP web dispatcher is to perform the load balancing between CPI tenants, e.g. any http request to CPI will go through the web dispatcher first, and it will send the http request to the specific node.

While the SAP Cloud Connector, is a connector which connects cloud product and on-premise system, e.g. CPI send data to a classical ERP which is on-premise product, we can set up a cloud connector between these two systems, and use a virtual address which is mapped to the ERP. So the flow is CPI-> cloud connector-> ERP, in CPI receiver channel, we will not configure the address of ERP directly, rather to input the virtual address of cloud connector. Please also check the guide about how to use cloud connector in CPI:

Best Regards,
