ABAP access to Twitter

Former Member

Hi forum!

We have an app that post twits from the ERP when a problem occurs.

On june 30th, the basic authorization of Twitter's API will shut down and we'll have to use Oauth protocol (Oauth.net) to use Twitter's API.

Do you know how to interact with this protocol from ABAP?.

Thanks,

John.

Hi,

it looks like there is no OAuth library for ABAP right now. It would be nice community project. Anyway, as a workaround you can implement your functionality in different language (check http://oauth.net/code/) and call it via OS command (SM69 & SM49).

Hi John,

I have no solution for your problem but I have a favour to ask.

I also want to implement a twitter connection from the CRM. Could you tell me how you did your connection from the ERP?

Best regards,

Daniel

John, Daniel,

sorry for the late answer, just found your Q (marked as "not answered yet") here.

Regarding OAuth and Twitter: you can use the ABAP-Twitter API called Twibap: https://cw.sdn.sap.com/cw/groups/twibap

It might be possible to implement this functionallity in ABAP using the function modules 'HTTP_POST', 'SSF_KRN_SIGN', 'CALCULATE_HASH_FOR_CHAR', 'CALCULATE_HMAC_FOR_CHAR' and/or some other. But I've never tried something similar.
