WHINT Interface Documentation for SAP Cloud Platform Integration (CPI)

0

Functionality

This solution creates an automatic documentation of your integration artifacts by generating PDF documents in plain text describing your SAP Cloud Platform Integration iFlow / OData Service.

  • Update (09.2019): Release to customer

Features

  • Administrative Information (Metadata), Configuration Parameters, Descriptions, Service Endpoints
  • Message Processing Sequence Flow listing all Integration Processes with Objects, Names and Settings/Values (based on BPMN)
  • Resources (Scripts, XSD, WSDL, EDMX, XSLT)
  • One folder per Integration Package is created. Each folder contains an overview PDF (_<PackageId>.pdf) with an overview about the package and all artifacts listed.
  • One PDF per iFlow/OData Service is created
  • The PDFs are stored on an SFTP, SharePoint, SAP CP Document Service or any other document management service
  • Your individual company logo can be used

The add-on runs periodically (e.g. weekly) and generates the documentation of your cloud integration content automatically.

WHINT Interface Documentation helps to automate the documentation process (keeps the documentation always up to date) and allows quality checks about naming conventions, design principles or runtime robustness. 
The solution is using the Standard OData API of SAP CPI and can be deployed on your CPI tenant as an Integration Package or provided as a service (where we would receive read access from our SAP CPI tenant).
