The managed gateway offers a set of pre-made mapping content by SAP that helps to convert the S/4HANA Cloud message format into SAP Business Network's native message format.

The mapping tool, a part of the SAP Integration Suite's extension tools for managing spend and business network, lets buyers set up their own specific mappings. This tool is a self-help option that supports a high demand for personalized mappings.

SAP Integration Suite provides three different kinds of mappings in its managed gateway for spend management and SAP Business Network.

SAP Integration Suite, managed gateway allows buyers to retain the format in which they send the transaction documents between SAP ERP and SAP Business Network. The managed gateway receives documents from SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA system in a non-cXML format, transforms them into cXML format, and sends them to SAP Business Network.

When you upgrade to a higher version of the managed gateway add-on, the mapping tool automatically migrates the custom mappings to the new version of the add-on.
