Before you can create SAP functions in Jitterbit, you must create at least one SAP endpoint.

Click the orange jigsaw icon  the main menu and select SAP Function from the resulting pop-up.

  • The Endpoint screen appears. If you have not previously created an SAP endpoint, you can do so now on the Endpoint screen. If you have created one or more SAP endpoints, select one now from the Available SAP Endpoints drop-down.

  • Click the Next button. The Type screen appears.

  • The Type screen displays three radio buttons:
    • BAPI: Business Application Programming Interface, interfaces for use by external applications developed by customers and by other SAP applications.
    • RFC: Remote Function Call to an external system.
    • IDoc: Intermediate Document, an SAP document format for business data transfers.
  • Click the appropriate radio button.

BAPI Example

NOTE:  The SAP Connector now supports the Table Parameters type for any BAPI or RFC.

  • When you select the BAPI radio button and Click Next, the Function screen appears, displaying a list of BAPI functions.

  • You can filter the display by typing a few letters in the Filter window. For example, if you type "ACC" in the window, only functions containing the letters "ACC" will display.
  • You can also filter the function display by making a selection from the drop-down: Name, Description, or both. The screen will then display function names, descriptions, or both, that contain the letters you typed in the Filter window.
  • Click on a function to select it. A selection activates the Finish button. This triggers a download of request and response structures.
  • If you have not already logged in to a Jitterbit server, you will be prompted to do so now.
  • Following the download, response and request structures are displayed.

  • This completes the BAPI type SAP function. You can now use this function in a Jitterbit integration. As appropriate, click one of the buttons in the upper right corner. A Jitterbit Wizard steps you through the creation process:
    • Create Operation
    • Create Request
    • Create Response

RFC Example

NOTE:  The SAP Connector now supports the Table Parameters type for any BAPI or RFC.

  • When you click the RFC radio button on the SAP Function wizard Type screen and Click Next, the Function screen appears, displaying a list of RFC functions.
  • Follow the same steps for completion as for BAPI functions.
  • On completion, you will have request and response structures available for use in a Jitterbit integration.
  • As appropriate, click one of the buttons in the upper right corner of the display for request and response structures.
  • A Jitterbit Wizard steps you through the creation process.

IDoc Example

  • When you click the IDOC radio button on the SAP Function wizard Type screen and Click Next, the Category screen appears.

  • Note that you can view a document category description by hovering your mouse over the category name.
  • You can filter the display by typing a few letters in the Filter window. For example, if you type "MO_" in the window, only functions containing the letters "MO_" will display.
  • You can also filter the category display by making a selection from the drop-down: Name, Description, or both. The screen will then display category names, descriptions, or both, that contain the letters you typed in the Filter window.
  • Click on a category to select it. A selection activates the Next button. This triggers a download of the selected category, which displays on the Function screen.
  • If you have not already logged into a Jitterbit server, you will be prompted to do so now.
  • On the Function screen, select the downloaded category. This activates the Finish button. Click the Finish button to trigger a download of request and response structures.
  • Following the download, request and response structures are displayed.

  • This completes the IDOC type SAP function. You can now use this function in a Jitterbit integration.
  • As appropriate, click one of the buttons in the upper right corner. A Jitterbit Wizard steps you through the creation process.
