This blog post shows the steps to create a simple CPI monitoring App using AppGyver.

Final App Preview:


Configuration Guide:

High level set up guide for AppGyver:

  1. Use REST API Direct Integration to connect with API endpoint from SAP API Management, which is in turn connected to SAP CPI.

Data Tab

Request Schema          Response Schema

Sample Request Data   

Sample Response

** Please note, the data used in the blog post, are fake/test data.

If no record is found for the inputted data, the response will look like below:


No Record

2. A data variable is created which will store the request data from user's input.


Data Variable

Select Interface from Dropdown Menu       

Select Status from Dropdown Menu         

Pick Start Date          Pick End Date

3. In ‘Search’ button component tap event, a few checks are done using IF conditions.

IF condition

After that, 'Create Record' is used and the response is stored in App variable.     

Component Tap Event

This app variable contains similar structure for success case. 'Open Page' will open the 'Message View' page.

4. List Item in the 'Message View' will be repeated based on the number of occurrence of records in MessageProcessLog. This page also contains a text "No records found for the selected criteria" which will be populated if no record is found.

Message View List Item

Visible Condition for Text: IS_EMPTY(appVars.MessageProcessingLogs.MessageProcessingLog)


Text for no record found

5. On component tap event of list item, the current item is stored to another app variable. 'Open Page' opens the 'Detailed View' page.

6. Container in 'Detailed View' page will be repeated based on the number of occurrences of Message.

Detailed View

    • Text Content (1st cell) : IF(IS_EMPTY(repeated.current.ApplicationMessageType),"Not defined", repeated.current.ApplicationMessageType)

    • Text Content (2nd cell) : IF(IS_EMPTY(repeated.current.ApplicationMessageId),"Not defined", repeated.current.ApplicationMessageId)

    • Text Content (3rd cell): current.MessageGuid

Implementation guide for Cloud Integration:



Step 1:

Configure HTTPS sender channel to get request data from SAP API Management.

Step 2:

Use Router step to check if the method is POST or not.

If it is POST, then proceed, else terminate the message.


Step 3:

Use Groovy script to set filter criteria for ODATA API call.
def Message processData(Message message) {
def body = message.getBody(String)
def input = new JsonSlurper().parseText(body)
def status =
def iflowname =
def startDate = + 'T00:00:00.000'
def endDate = + 'T00:00:00.000'
StringBuffer str = new StringBuffer();
str.append("LogStart ge datetime'" + startDate + "'")
str.append(" and LogEnd le datetime'" + endDate + "'")
if (!iflowname.equalsIgnoreCase('all'))
str.append(" and IntegrationFlowName eq '" + iflowname + "'")
if (!status.equalsIgnoreCase('all'))
str.append(" and Status eq '" + status + "'")
def queryFilter = str.toString()
message.setProperty("queryFilter", queryFilter)
return message

Step 4:

Use Request-Reply to call MessageProcessingLogs ODATA API.

ODATA Receiver Adapter

Step 5:

Use Filter to remove records related to this iFlow.


Step 6:

Use Content Modifier to add root element.

Content Modifier

Step 7:

Use Router to check if any records exist.


Step 8:

Use Groovy Script to modify the structure.
import groovy.xml.MarkupBuilder
import groovy.xml.XmlUtil

def Message processData(Message message) {
def body = message.getBody(String)
def input = new XmlSlurper().parseText(body)
Writer writer = new StringWriter()
def xmlMarkup = new MarkupBuilder(writer)
xmlMarkup.MessageProcessingLogs {
def list = input.MessageProcessingLog.IntegrationFlowName.collect().unique()
list.each { this_item ->
def statusList = []
input.MessageProcessingLog.IntegrationFlowName.each { this_flow ->
if (this_flow == this_item) {
def groups = statusList.groupBy { it }
statusList.unique().each { this_status ->
groups.each { key, value ->
if (key == this_status) {
MessageProcessingLog {
Messages {
input.MessageProcessingLog.IntegrationFlowName.each { this_iflow ->
if (this_iflow == this_item && this_iflow.parent().Status == this_status) {
Message {

return message

Step 9:

Use Content Modifier to set text body in case no record is found.

Content Modifier

Step 10:

Use XML to JSON converter to convert it to JSON.

[Please note, instead of using Step 10, you can also directly convert to JSON structure using Groovy Script in Step 8 itself]

XML to JSON Converter

Set up guide for API Management:

Step 1:

Create an API Provider for SCPI.

API Provider

Step 2:

Create an API based on the SCPI endpoint and assign the route rules in the proxy endpoint as below.

Credentials for connecting runtime URL of CPI

API Proxy

Step 3:

Apply API policy to handle CORS.

Assign Message Policy

<AssignMessage async="false" continueOnError="false"
enabled="true" xmlns=''>
<Header name="Access-Control-Allow-Origin">*</Header>
<Header name="Access-Control-Allow-Headers">setcookie, origin, accept, maxdataserviceversion, x-csrf-token,
apikey, dataserviceversion, accept-language, x-httpmethod,content-type,X-Requested-With</Header>
<Header name="Access-Control-MaxAge">3628800</Header>
<Header name="Access-Control-Allow-Methods">GET,
<Header name="Access-Control-ExposeHeaders">set-cookie, x-csrf-token, x-http-method</Header>
<AssignTo createNew="false"

Step 4:

Apply API policy to verify API key.
 <!--Specify in the APIKey element where to look for the variable containing the api key--> 
<VerifyAPIKey async='true' continueOnError='false' enabled='true'
<APIKey ref='request.header.apikey'/>

Step 5:

Create a conditional flow for pre-flight request.

Conditional flow

Step 6:

Create an API Product and then add the API to it and publish.

Step 7:

Subscribe to the published API product by creating an application in API Business Hub Enterprise. It will generate an API key.

TakeAway Points:

  1. API Management is used for handling CORS.

  2. In Appgyver, app variables exist globally, in the context of the whole app. It can be used to share data between different pages.

  3. In Cloud integration, ODATA API is used for retrieving data related to message processing log.
