First SAP CPI integration

In this demostration, I’ll show how you can get to create your first SAP CPI flow.

First you need to get a CPI tenant. In this case, I have used the free trial tenant from SAP but you can also use a normal tenant. See how to get yours in the blog

It can take some days to get your instance running. And deploy the first iflow. In my video I had to abandon one deployment because it took 30 minutes to deploy. So I continued on an existing iflow.

See the process

  1. Create your CPI instance
  2. Create an iflow, starting by a scheduler
  3. Create modification of with Content Creation
  4. See find the trace information
  5. Create a mock service and see what data is send
  6. Process response


Mock service

To create a simple service I recommend you can read more on the service here.

Tools page

You may want to add some tools to SAP CPI, see the blog on 4 four best tools.  CPI helper is a must. The Figaf tools also really useful, but is currently not supported on Cloud Foundry.
