In this post I would like to introduce a simple example of how to call a remote enabled Function Module via RFC from SAP Digital Manufacturing.

The involved components are the following (see Integration Guide😞


You have completed the Setup Guide. Especially relevant is the path marked in the picture:

DM Subaccount:

Cloud Integration Subaccount:
Destination: <YOUR_RFC_DEST>


1. Select a remote enabled function module you would like to use

For example:

2. Make resource available in Cloud Connector


3. Check if Technical Integration User used for Destination <YOUR_RFC_DEST> has sufficient roles for this particular Function Module

4. Develop an integration artifact in Integration Suite

  • To automatically get the structure of your Function Module it is easiest to get it from a Web Service. This Web Service does not need to be saved and is not used.

  • Follow Path Utilities>More Utilities>Create Web Service>From the Function Module

  • Click Through the Assistant

  • Download the WSDL

  • Close without saving

  • Log Into Integration Suite as a Integration Developer "AuthGroup_IntegrationDeveloper"

  • Go to Design Artifacts

  • Create a Package

  • Create a Integration Flow

  • Connect Sender with Start HTTPS

  • Disable CSRF Protection

  • Add JSON to XML Converter

  • Add Message Mapping on how to Create the Mapping
    For the source use for example Source.xsd as:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xs:schema attributeFormDefault="unqualified" elementFormDefault="qualified" xmlns:xs="">
<xs:element name="root">
<xs:element name="MATNR" type="xs:string" />

(note: for more advanced cases with occurrence != 1..1  use minOccurs maxOccurs)

Occurrence has to match for your connections. For example:
<xs:element name="item" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">

  • For target use the wsdl you downloaded earlier.

  • Connect everything up

  • Create a request reply and connect it to receiver

  • Put in the RFC Destination in your Cloud Integration subaccount

  • Deploy artifact


Now you can call your artifact via postman under the url: https://<<your-url>>-rt.cfapps.<<your-region>>

Body (raw json):




Use Basic Auth with your Integration Suite user credentials.
In Part 2 of this series you will learn how to use this API in SAP DM
