Nice to see SAP integration in library! Maybe standard connectors/functions in the future? (ie Zapier)


I’d like to test SAP S4 HANA Cloud unit test app, but we still used SAP R3 instead of SAP S4 HANA.

@youri.regnaud - Absolutely! We will be looking into standard middleware/platforms in the future :slight_smile:
Curious to know what are you thinking on the lines of Zapier? A standard Tulip<>Zapier integration?

@mcc6025 - Feel free to download the SAP S4 HANA Cloud Unit Test from the link & start testing with the out of box endpoints available in the SAP S4 Hana Connector for Tulip.
You would only need to generate an API key on SAP S4 HANA Cloud after creating a free account.
SAP API Business hub has very good documentation that covers a wide range of business use-cases.

With regards to SAP R3, depending on your specific use-case for Tulip<>SAP, you can leverage out of the box Odata web-services available in SAP or look into different middleware platforms that can make the data available in a form that is consumable by Tulip from SAP.

Let us know what your plans are :slight_smile:


Interesting topic. When I talk about Zapier, the idea is more to have in Tulip already preconfigured “connectors”, for example ERP (SAP, Netsuite, …) Collaboration (Teams, Slack, …) Serie database (InfluxDB, ) NoCode DB (Airtable, …) Another way as all this solution providen OpenAPI specification is to create a “function wizard builder” that help to build Tulip function based on OpenAPI specifications
