New tool pack enables organisations and partners to connect third-party applications with SAP Business One on SAP HANA (SL) and SQL Server (DIAPI)
Codeless Platforms today announced the release of SAP Business One Tool Pack v3.1 for BPA Platform which contains a new SAP Business One Service Layer (SL) Integration tool, alongside its market-proven SAP Business One (DIAPI) Integration tool and SAP Business One Event tool.
The Tool Pack provides consultants, developers and SAP Business One partners with everything they need to integrate applications and software with SAP Business One, whether on SAP HANA or SQL databases, and then automate the transfer of data between them.
Tasks such as retrieving information from a company or executing an operation to automatically Add, Update or Delete items, such as invoices, sales orders or business partner information, can easily be performed.
Matt Lidster, Managing Director, Codeless Platforms: “The introduction of the new Service Layer provides SAP Business One users with a great deal more flexibility as it exposes more objects, fields and operations, and can also respond quicker to SAP Business One developments, such as the release of a new object. Our integration tools simply enable organisations to easily connect to SAP Business One and automate the transfer of data no matter which database the ERP system is on.”
Historically, SAP Business One relied on Microsoft SQL for data management. However, the introduction of SAP HANA, its own database, has allowed SAP to offer customers a REST-based API (Service Layer) that enables them to connect applications and software directly to SAP Business One’s data and services as well as run the Service Layer in both cloud and on-premises environments.
The SAP Business One (SL) Integration tool is therefore useful for organisations wishing to communicate with SAP Business One over the Service Layer via REST APIs, in contrast to the SAP Business One (DIAPI) Integration tool which communicates with SAP Business One over the Data Interface (DI) API.
The tool can expose the objects and fields of multiple company databases allowing operations such as Get, Add, Update, Delete, Search, and in some circumstances, Cancel, or Close. These objects and fields can be consumed by BPA Platform tools including Run Microsoft Reporting Services and Web Service Connector.
The SAP Business One (SL) Integration tool can also be used to consume an XML or recordset data source, as well as output from BPA Platform tools such as Database Query (ODBC / OLEDB) and import flat file.
The third feature of Tool Pack v3.1 is the SAP Business One Event tool. The Event Agent monitors SAP Business One for modifications to the company database or when a specific event occurs. Once an event has been detected, it notifies the SAP Business One Event tool to trigger a task sequence. This tool works on both SAP HANA and SQL Server.
