4. After running the job, its giving the error: Invalid SOAP response.

Cause

As per functionality of Integration Center, we support SOAP calls in general.

But specifically for SFAPI, this is not supported. There has to  be an explicit SOAP call for login and then make next SOAP call to do the actual operation passing the cookies received from the first call. Which means, there has to be 2 SOAP calls with different operations within the same integration. And that can't be done using IC. That's why sfapi calls won't work with IC.

The SFAPI guide clearly says that before you can do any other SOAP operation you need to invoke Login API. While the IC document talks about only single SOAP call within an integration. There is no mention of multiple SOAP calls.

Please refer to this section in the SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite SFAPI: Developer Guide:

Resolution

If your use case is to make SOAP API calls from Integration Center using SFAPI, this is not supported.

However, if your usecase is to create a scheduled integration with Source and Destination as SuccessFactors, the correct option would be to create a query using the config as mentioned in the article 2748308
