SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory Integration



Intro

For customers using SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory, it is now possible to integrate with SAP Field Service. When enabled, events for which there is a subscription in SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory will be sent.

The connector will automatically check (every five minutes) if there is a subscription for each event, and will then store this information in a local storage. This means that if you activate a subscription for a given event in SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory, you might need to wait for up to five minutes for the event to be sent


Supported Events

The following events are supported and communicated:

  • crowd.activity.accepted
  • crowd.activity.dispatched
  • crowd.activity.retriesexceeded

Previous Steps

Attention: SAP C/4HANA cockpit no longer supports the provisioning of extensibility runtimes. After June 30, 2020, the Extensibility tab will be removed from the cockpit, and you will only be able to access your runtimes directly from your “Kyma” consoles. Instead, you can now use SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory, “Kyma” runtime, or the open-source project “Kyma”. Please migrate your existing runtimes to one of these options by June 30, 2020. Until then, you can continue to access your existing runtimes in the cockpit.
