This blog focuses on integrating SAP ERP with SuccessFactors through CPI, particularly addressing the configurable or standard Integration-Flow. Whether setting up initial connectivity with SAP or updating connectivity to a new SAP server, the steps outlined in this blog remain consistent across different SAP landscapes.

This blog will cover building the two-way communication channels:

  • SAP ERP to CPI Suite
  • CPI Suite to SAP ERP

Step :1 – Navigate to the CPI Suite and Copy the Name of the Integration Flow (I-Flow).

For Example: “Replicate Employee Master Data and Org. Assignments from SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central to SAP ERP or SAP S4HANA”


Step:2 – For all configurable Integration Flows (I-Flows), you can access the technical integration settings guide on the SAP Help Portal. Simply search on Google using the keyword "I-FlowName.pdf" to locate the relevant documentation.

For Example: “Replicate Employee Master Data and Org. Assignments from SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central to SAP ERP or SAP S4HANA.PDF
