2591063 - Learning (LMS) OData API Token in Boomi

Symptom

You are following the Learning (LMS) KBA "2318897 - LMS Webservices Knowledge Support and Tips" and you want to generate the OData Token in your Boomi custom development.

Environment

  • SuccessFactors Learning (LMS) - OData
  • Dell Boomi custom development / LMS OData API - HTTP connector

Resolution

This KBA has the objective to share how you can build your own Boomi SF LMS OData HTTP connector to generate the Token. Find below a simple suggestion how you can achieve this.

Step 1, include the Start Shape > "No Data"

Step 3, add in the parameters, the values that you want to pass in the JSON format. These values are described in the LMS KBA 2318897

Step 4, In the Connection of the "HTTP client", include your HTTP Token URL. In this example, I used my salesdemo account (https://supportpreview-stage.plateau.com/learning/oauth-api/rest/v1/token).

Step 5, In the Operation of the "HTTP client", select the following values.

In the "Request Profile" and "Response Profile", you will need to import the JSON format (can be seen in the Step 6 and 7).

In the Request Header, you should include the Authorization and the value with your Secret key converted with base64.

Step 6, import one JSON file with the following format.

{
 "grant_type":"client_credentials",
 "scope":{
  "userId":"GSOLIMAN",
  "companyId":"supportpreview",
  "userType":"admin",
  "resourceType":"learning_public_api"
 }
}

Step 7, import one JSON file with the following format

{
    "access_token": "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",

    "token_type": "Bearer"
}
