In this blog I will be testing the SAPODataConnector using the SAP Gateway - Demo Consumption System.
The SAPODataConnector enables the connection to the SAP Netweaver Gateway through the ODdata specification. It is a specialized implementation of the ODataConnector. See Integration Connectors for documentation.
It relies on three components :
Integration Runtime : microservice that runs outside of ThingWorx and has to be deployed separately, it uses Web Socket to communicate with the ThingWorx platform (similar to EMS).
Integration Subsystem : available by default since 7.4 (not extension needed)
Integration Connector : SAPODataConnector available by default in 8.0 (not extension needed)
ThingWorx can use OAuth to access SAP, but in this blog I will just use basic authentication.
