Graph is a powerful enhancement to API Management, capability of SAP Integration Suite , which supports in transforming APIs. You can easily and securely, provide your integration and application developers with selective, abstracted access to your enterprise data via a single, easy-to-use API. The enterprise data is semantically connected in the form of a business data graph.

This series is designed to support SAP customers and partners through building a first end-to-end implementation of Graph. To keep things straightforward, there are two personas in an end-to-end Graph implementation, which have the following responsibilities:

  • Administrator
    • Configures the SAP Integration Suite service plan in SAP BTP, as well as SAP BTP users and their roles
    • Enables connectivity to business systems in the form of SAP BTP destinations
    • Creates a business data graph (including model extensions, as required)
    • Explores the resulting business data graph in the Graph Navigator tool
    • Prepares the credentials file to the business data graph for the developer


  •  Developer
    • Uses the Graph Navigator tool to explore the connected entities and try out OData queries on the real data included in the business data graph
    • Creates and deploys an application which uses the Graph API (and the credentials file for the business data graph)
