Business Case:http://Cloud Integration

SAP CPQ by default provides standard integrations with SAP tools like ECC/ S4HANA/ BRIM/ C4C ..etc . Using this approach we can Send and Get  information easily whenever we need (In a Click).

Here we will implement required Integration in SCPI and that IFlow will be called in CPQ script.

  • We can connect to an External System and get the required Information like Shipping/Cost/Pricing..etc
  • Can Send Quote information from CPQ to third party tool.
  • Can Create an ORDER in third party tools.
  • Can Send Information to other CRM solutions.

Steps:

Step1: Create an IFLOW in SCPI and convert that ENDPOINT as API.

More details can get from sap-cloud-integration-step-towards-building-api-based-integrations

Step2: Create a Script in CPQ. Based on requirement we can create script in 2 ways

    • Global Script:

we can make this as a global script and can attach to an EVENT. when that particular event happens this code will execute.

    • Custom Action:

We can create this script as an Action/Button and can call in any status or by any user.
