Connect SAP rules

Connect SAP rules support interactions between Pega Platform and SAP R/3 (ECC) or NetWeaver systems over HTTP. Use Connect SAP rules in your application to connect to existing SAP Web services and create connectors of SOAP or IDoc types.

Connect SAP rules are no longer being actively developed, and are being considered for deprecation in upcoming releases. Using Connect SAP rules does not follow Pega development best practices. Use Connect SOAP rules instead. For more information, see Connect SOAP rules.

The following tabs are available on this form:


To list the Connect SAP rules in your application, use the Application Explorer or click Configure Integration Connectors Connector Definitions & Simulations .

To list all Connect SAP rules that are available to you, use the Records Explorer.


To create a Connect SAP rule directly in your application, click Create Integration-Connectors Connect SAP . Identify the URL of the WSDL file or IDoc XSD document that describes the processing and methods of the SAP Web service you want to connect to. For more information, see Creating a SAP integration.

To debug your application, you can simulate a SAP connector when the external Web service is unavailable or lacks a test environment. For more information, see Creating Connector Simulations.

For details on gathering performance information about a connector, see Tracking system utilization for a requestor session with Performance Analyzer.
