S/4HANA Cloud to Salesforce Product Broadcast

(0 reviews)

home

As a Salesforce administrator I want to synchronize products between a SAP S/4HANA and a Salesforce organization.

This template is a foundation for the process of broadcasting products from a SAP S/4HANA to a Salesfoce instance. Everytime there is new product or a change in an already existing one, the integration polls for changes in the SAP S/4HANA source instance and is responsible for upserting the product into Salesforce.

Requirements have been set not only to be used as examples, but also to establish a starting point to adapt your integration to your requirements.

As implemented, this template leverages the batch module. The batch job is divided into Process and On Complete stages.

The integration is triggered by a scheduler defined in the flow that triggers the application, queries the newest SAP S/4HANA updates or creations that match a filter criteria and executes the batch job. During the Process stage, each SAP S/4HANA product is be filtered depending on if it has an existing matching Product in Salesforce. The last step of the Process stage groups the products and creates or updates them in Salesforce. Finally during the On Complete stage, the template logs output statistics data on the console.

License Agreement

This template is subject to the conditions of the MuleSoft License Agreement. Review the terms of the license before downloading and using this template. You can use this template for free with the Mule Enterprise Edition, CloudHub, or as a trial in Anypoint Studio.

Considerations

To make this template run, there are certain preconditions that must be considered. All of them deal with the preparations in both source (SAP S/4HANA) and destination (SFDC) systems, that must be made for the template to run smoothly. Failing to do so can lead to unexpected behavior of the template.

Before you continue with the use of this template, you may want to check out this Documentation Page, that teaches you how to work with SAP S/4HANA and Anypoint Studio.

Run it!

Simple steps to get this template running.

Running On Premises

In this section we help you run this template on your computer.

Where to Download Anypoint Studio and the Mule Runtime

If you are new to Mule, download this software:

Note: Anypoint Studio requires JDK 8.

Importing a Template into Studio

In Studio, click the Exchange X icon in the upper left of the taskbar, log in with your Anypoint Platform credentials, search for the template, and click Open.

Running on Studio

After you import your template into Anypoint Studio, follow these steps to run it:

  • Locate the properties file mule.dev.properties, in src/main/resources.
  • Complete all the properties required as per the examples in the "Properties to Configure" section.
  • Right click the template project folder.
  • Hover your mouse over Run as.
  • Click Mule Application (configure).
  • Inside the dialog, select Environment and set the variable mule.env to the value dev.
  • Click Run.

  • Complete all the properties required as per the examples in the "Properties to Configure" section.
  • Right click the template project folder.
  • Hover your mouse over Run as.
  • Click Mule Application (configure).
  • Inside the dialog, select Environment and set the variable mule.env to the value dev.
  • Click Run.To make this template run on Studio there are a few extra steps that needs to be made.Check this Documentation Page: Enabling Your Studio Project for SAP S/4HANA.

Running on Mule Standalone

Update the properties in one of the property files, for example in mule.prod.properties, and run your app with a corresponding environment variable. In this example, use mule.env=prod.

Running on CloudHub

When creating your application in CloudHub, go to Runtime Manager > Manage Application > Properties to set the environment variables listed in "Properties to Configure" as well as the mule.env value.

Deploying a Template in CloudHub

In Studio, right click your project name in Package Explorer and select Anypoint Platform > Deploy on CloudHub.

Properties to Configure

To use this template, configure properties such as credentials, configurations, etc.) in the properties file or in CloudHub from Runtime Manager > Manage Application > Properties. The sections that follow list example values.

Application Configuration

Batch Aggregator Configuration

  • page.size 200
  • aggregator.size 100

Scheduler Configuration

  • scheduler.frequency 10000
  • scheduler.start.delay 100

Watermarking Default Last Query Timestamp

  • watermark.default.expression 2018-12-13T03:00:59Z

SalesForce Connector Configuration

  • sfdc.username bob.dylan@sfdc
  • sfdc.password DylanPassword123
  • sfdc.securityToken avsfwCUl7apQs56Xq2AKi3X

SAP4HANA Connector Configuration

  • s4hana.baseUrl your.sap4hana.address.com
  • s4hana.username your.sap4hana.username
  • s4hana.password your.sap4hana.password

API Calls

SalesForce imposes limits on the number of API Calls that can be made.
Therefore calculating this amount may be an important factor to
consider. Product Broadcast Template calls to the API can be
calculated using the formula:

X / ${page.size}

Being X the number of Products to be synchronized on each run.

The division by ${page.size} is because, by default, Products are gathered in groups
of ${page.size} for each Upsert API Call in the aggregation step. Also consider
that this calls are executed repeatedly every polling cycle.

For instance if 10 records are fetched from origin instance, then 1 api
calls to SFDC will be made (1).

Customize It!

This brief guide provides a high level understanding of how this template is built and how you can change it according to your needs. As Mule applications are based on XML files, this page describes the XML files used with this template. More files are available such as test classes and Mule application files, but to keep it simple, we focus on these XML files:

  • config.xml
  • businessLogic.xml
  • endpoints.xml
  • errorHandling.xml

config.xml

This file provides the configuration for connectors and configuration properties. Only change this file to make core changes to the connector processing logic. Otherwise, all parameters that can be modified should instead be in a properties file, which is the recommended place to make changes.

businessLogic.xml

Functional aspect of the template is implemented on this XML, directed by a batch job that's responsible for creations or updates. The several message processors constitute three high level actions that fully implement the logic of this template:

  1. Job execution is invoked from SchedulerFlow (endpoints.xml) every time there is a new query executed asking for created or updated products.
  2. During the Process stage, each SAP S/4HANA product is filtered depending on if it has an existing matching product in Salesforce.
  3. The last step of the Process stage groups the products and creates or updates them in Salesforce.
  4. Finally during the On Complete stage, the template logs the output statistics data on the console.

endpoints.xml

This file contains the endpoints for triggering the template and for retrieving the objects that meet the defined criteria in a query. You can execute a batch job process with the query results.

errorHandling.xml

This file handles how your integration reacts depending on the different exceptions. This file provides error handling that is referenced by the main flow in the business logic.
