Introduction

An SAP connection is configured using the SAP connector and a Jitterbit Harmony Cloud or Private Agent to establish access to either SAP ECC version 6 and above or SAP S/4HANA on-premises. Once a connection is established, you can configure one or more SAP activities associated with that connection to use as a target within an operation.

Creating or Editing an SAP Connection

From the design canvas, open the Connectivity tab of the design component palette:

Next Steps

After configuring an SAP connection, you can configure one or more SAP activities associated with that connection to use as a source or target within an operation. For more information, see these pages:

  • BAPI: An SAP BAPI activity is a standard interface to business object models (function modules) and is used in an operation.

  • RFC: An SAP RFC activity is a special type of function module that communicates with remote servers and is used in an operation.
