Open hub Destinations - Third-Party Tools As Destinations

Dear all, below is the SAP Help process flow steps. I am quiet clear of all the steps except the APIs. Where do we define these APIs? When it says "You use API RSB_API_OHS_DEST_SETPARAMS to define the parameters for the third-party tool that are required for the extraction" where do I use it? Is it in the 3rd party tool? or is it in SAP BI.

If it is in 3rd party tool, where in 3rd party tool. Do I need to write as code ? or would I have an option in the 3rd party tool?

If someone can help me with Microsoft connector using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Integration Services packages to SAP BI that would be helpful.

Where in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Integration Services packages can I use/put this APIs? Any help Plzz

If it is in SAP BI where in SAP BI do I have to use these APIs? Any help is highly appreciated

Regards,

KK

Process Flow:

Extraction to the third-party tool can be executed as follows:

1. You define an open hub destination with Third-Party Tool as the destination type.

2. You create an RFC destination for your third-party tool and enter it in the definition of the open hub destination.

3. You use API RSB_API_OHS_DEST_SETPARAMS to define the parameters for the third-party tool that are required for the extraction.

4. You either start extraction immediately or include it in a process chain. You can also start this process chain from the third-party tool using process chain API RSPC_API_CHAIN_START. The extraction process then writes the data to a database table in the BI system.

5. When the extraction process is finished, the system sends a notification to the third-party tool using API RSB_API_OHS_3RDPARTY_NOTIFY.

6. The extracted data is read by API RSB_API_OHS_DEST_READ_DATA.

7. The status of the extraction is transferred to the monitor by API RSB_API_OHS_REQUEST_SETSTATUS.

    It's been a along time since i worked with open hub, but here goes:

    The Third Party tool needs parameters or switches to work correctly. Think of the old DOS commanda the "/a" "/b" suffix.

    The APIs are simply a way to pass these parameters from the BW source to the Third Party target.

    If your tool does not need them, don't worry about them.
