Introduction

An integration flow usually contains multiple resource files which can be used by different adapters and flow steps. It becomes very important for the Integration Developer to have an overview of all these resources and manage them from one central location.

To serve this purpose, SAP Cloud Integration’s Web Application has now introduced a “Resources” view as part of the integration flow, which offer options like viewing, downloading, deleting and opening of the resources in its respective editor.

 

“Resources” View

When you open any existing integration flow or create a new one in the Web, you will see a new tab called “Resources”, which lists all the resources used within the integration flow.

The resources are grouped under these categories and types:

  • Archives

    • JAR



  • Mappings

    • Message Mapping

    • Operation Mapping

    • XSLT Mapping



  • Scripts

    • Groovy

    • Java



  • Schemas

    • XSD

    • WSDL

    • EDMX




 

From the "Resources" view, you can open the resource in its respective editor by clicking on the resource name.

You can also get the access path for each of the resources via the tooltip, which can be used in scripts or other flow steps for accessing a resource.

Download Resources

If you want to re-use a particular resource across multiple integration flows, you can use the "Download" button which allows you to download all applicable resources from the "Resources" view both in Edit and Read-only mode.

Now it is also possible to delete resources from the "Resources" view, using the "Delete" button which is available in the Edit mode.

Conclusion

Resource view supports options to view, open specific resource types via their respective editors, download and also to delete resources. In addition it is possible to add resources from the file system and also to add them from other integration flows within the same tenant.

Hope this blog was useful and helps you consume the resource view in the Web.
