2733409 - BIB x EE (Legacy) Integrations - Cloud Platform Integration (CPI)

Symptom

  • What are the differences between BIB and EE(Legacy) Replication?
  • Which integration scenario should I Implement?
  • What are the limitations of each scenario?

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Environment

  • SAP ERP;
  • Cloud Platform Integration(CPI);
  • SuccessFactors OData API.

Resolution

BIB integration:

  • Query is built in the ERP and sent to HCI/CPI;
  • More options of customization if compared to the Legacy integration;
  • Single iFlow in HCI for Employee Master Data and Organizational Assignment. (This helps avoiding synchronization issues).

Reference Guides:

Reference Screenshot of the configuration in HCI: (note: Most of the options were moved to ERP side, that's why we see less configuration options)

EE Legacy integration:

  • Query is built on the HCI;
  • Less customization available if compared to the BIB integration;
  • 2 iFlows are deployed on HCI, one for Employee Master Data and another one for Organizational Assignment.

Observation: The ABAP code and framework is different for the 2 types of Integrations, since in the BIB most of the QUERY customization is made on the ERP side.
