Graph is a new and innovative capability of API Management, part of the SAP Integration Suite. Extending traditional API Management, Graph enables you to expose all your business data in the form of a semantically connected data graph, accessed via a single unified and powerful API.


Enterprise landscapes continue to expand in scale and complexity. Each additional system, SaaS, or micro-service introduces new protocols, data models, connectivity, and security conventions. Real-world problems often span multiple lines of business, services, and APIs.

Consequently, even the most experienced developers struggle to understand all the technologies and interfaces involved. Developing new business-extending client applications requires an ever-growing range of expertise and skills. The phenomenal adoption of low-code tools by nonprofessional developers further increases the gap.

Enterprises use API Management to partially address this gap: APIs can be renamed, authentication can be streamlined, APIs can be protected against unauthorized access or threats. But this doesn't address the deeper problem: separate, disconnected APIs from different data sources and systems.


The integration of a new and more advanced release of SAP Graph into API Management was announced at SAP TechEd 2022. Graph in SAP Integration Suite is now available for a limited time as a closed beta program, and includes the following new functions:

  • A configuration UI to create business data graphs - an extension of the new Integration Suite configuration UI

  • The ability to extend the out-of-the-box Graph data model

  • Graph Navigator (enterprise edition) - a tool to explore and try out queries on your own configured business data graphs

  • GraphQL support (in addition to OData v4)

Additionally, we are happy to share that general availability for the Graph capability in SAP Integration Suite is now planned for Q2-2023, as seen in SAP Road Map Explorer.
