Use Studio to Configure SAP S/4HANA OData Connector 2.2 - Mule 4

Anypoint Studio (Studio) editors help you design and update your Mule applications, properties, and configuration files.

To add and configure a connector in Studio:

If you are new to configuring connectors in Studio, see Use Studio to Configure a Connector. If, after reading this topic, you need additional information about the connector fields, see the SAP S/4HANA OData Connector Reference.

Create a Mule Project

In Anypoint Studio, create a new Mule project in which to add and configure the connector:

  1. From the Studio main menu, select File > New > Mule Project.

  2. Enter a name for your Mule project and click Finish.

Add the Connector to Your Mule Project

Add Anypoint Connector for SAP S/4HANA OData to a Mule project to automatically populate the project’s XML code with the connector’s namespace and schema location, as well as to add the required dependencies to the project’s pom.xml file.

  1. In the Mule Palette view, click (X) Search in Exchange.

  2. In Add Dependencies to Project, type sap s/4hana odata in the search field.

  3. Click the connector name in Available modules.

  4. Click Add.

  5. Click Finish.

Adding a connector to a Mule project in Studio does not make that connector available to other projects in your Studio workspace.

Configure an Input Source

An input source initiates a flow when a specified condition is met. The act of dragging the connector’s operation from the palette onto the Anypoint Studio canvas automatically populates the XML code with the connector namespace and schema location.

Possible input source operations for this connector are:

  • HTTP Listener
    Starts your app using a browser or a command such as curl

  • Scheduler
    Starts your app at timed intervals

In Studio, drag the input operation you choose from the Mule Palette to the Source panel in the canvas, and supply the required parameters.

Add a Connector Operation to the Flow

When you add a connector operation to your flow, you immediately define a specific operation for that connector to perform.

To add an operation for SAP S/4HANA OData Connector, follow these steps:

  1. In the Mule Palette view, select SAP S/4HANA OData and then select the desired operation.

  2. Drag the operation onto the Studio canvas to the right of the input source.

Global Configuration Elements

To use SAP S/4HANA OData Connector in a Mule app, configure a connector global element for connector operations to use in your application.

You can put placeholder values in the mule-artifact.content configuration file in the src/main/resources folder of your project.

You can either enter your credentials in the global configuration content or reference a configuration file that contains the values for your credentials. Using a configuration file is recommended for simpler maintenance and better reuse of your project. Keeping these values in a separate file is useful if you need to deploy to different environments, such as production, development, and QA, where access credentials might differ.

Configure a Global Element

Use the Global Element Properties configuration dialog to configure a global element for SAP S/4HANA OData Connector:

  1. In your project, click the Global Elements tab at the base of the canvas.

  2. In the Global Configuration Elements screen, click Create:

    sap hana global config wizard
  3. In the Choose Global Type wizard, expand Connector Configuration, select SAP S 4HANA Config, and click OK.

  4. Configure the following values in the General tab:

    1. In the Connection drop-down menu, select the connection type:

      • Basic authentication
        For basic authentication, enter the following required values:

        • Service Base URL
          The URL of the SAP S/4HANA instance you want to manage

        • Username
          The user name used to initialize the session

        • Password
          The password used to authenticate the user

      • OAuth 2 Application Connection Provider
        For OAuth 2.0 authentication, enter the following required information:

        • Service base URL
          The base URL of the service provider of the SAP S/4HANA system to access from the connector. All other endpoints are derived from this base URL.

        • Client ID
          The OAuth client ID that is registered with the service provider

        • Client secret
          The OAuth client secret that corresponds to the client ID and is registered with the service provider.

        • Token URL
          Token URL that corresponds to the URL of the endpoint that provides the access tokens

    2. Click OK.

  5. Click Test Connection to ensure that your access credentials are correct.
