In Service Pack 11, SAP now offers the ability to document Cloud Platform Integration – Integration Flows in the Integration Repository found in Solution Manager. The CPI Tool is a multi-step wizard which guides users through the process of retrieving Integration Flows from a CPI tenant, performing necessary mappings and importing the Integration Flows into the Integration Repository.
- The Cloud Platform Integration tool requires Solution Manager 7.2 Service Pack 11
- Google Chrome – In order to facilitate the retrieval of Integration Flows, the browser must make requests to the CPI tenant. Starting in Chrome 73, Google has added restrictions on how the browser can make these requests. These restrictions must be disabled for the tool to work. Please note, it is not recommended that this low security version of Chrome be used for web browsing, it should only be used for the purposes of running the Cloud Platform Integration tool.
It is planned that future releases of this tool will not require this version of Chrome.
- Neo Tenant – Currently, the APIs used to retrieve Integration Flows are only available on Neo tenants. Development of these APIs on Cloud Foundry tenants is ongoing.
