Integrations at SAP Fieldglass consist of two overall components; the code to extract or populate the data (the connector) and the method for which the data file is passed to or from SAP Fieldglass to an external system.
SAP Fieldglass uses 3 different methods of file transfer:
Manual, which is an integration that is done within the User Interface. The manual transfer method simply means that the upload or download will be run manually through the UI by a user.
This is done directly in the Admin menu, under the Integration section: Download Data or Upload Data.
There you are able to select the file and connector you want to up or download and confirm the integration under the Integration Audit Trail.
- SFTP (secure file transfer protocol), in which a data file is placed onto a client hosted server.
- Web Service, in which SAP Fieldglass is configured and connected either directly to the client system or to middleware.
