Key Considerations for Complex Integration Models in SAP Build Work Zone

Having looked at different extensibility and integration scenarios for SAP Build Work Zone already, one aspect is shared across most, or even all scenarios: How can the user authentication with the integrated business application be handled securely? As outlined in the previous lessons, the SAP BTP connectivity service plays a critically important role in ensuring such a secure connection can be established. While the default choice (for example, when creating a UI Integration card) will likely have a direct connection from SAP Build Work Zone <> SAP BTP <> (SAP) business application, there are cases where more complex, enterprise grade integration patterns, are required.

Understanding Different Backend Integration Scenarios

Instead of leveraging a direct connection, there can also be integration setups that leverage principal propagation with SAP BTP to forward the principal (identity of a user) across several connections in a complex system landscape. This helps to avoid using technical users in each of the systems involved.

This lesson will cover several integration use cases where principal propagation can be applied.
