Dear Experts,

I am very new to CPI API Management. We want to build a scenario using APIs. Will you please help how to build using ODATA. Please help with a sample scenario to understand from scratch and what kind of authentication is feasible ( Basic or Certificate based ) to achieve this requirement.

Thanks and Regards,

Raviteja Satuluri.

Hi Raviteja

One important thing to understand right off the bat, is that API Management manages APIs provided by other systems. Those other systems can be on-premise (like S/4HANA, SAP PI, SAP Gateway etc.) or in the cloud (like e.g. SAP Cloud Platform, SuccessFactors and S/4HANA Cloud).

APIs can be exposed to the outside world without API Management, for sure, but if you place API Management in front of your API, you get a lot of benefits like real-time analytics, monetisation options, improved security, protection from e.g. DDOS attacks and non-malicious spikes, mediation functionality, a streamlined developer portal cataloging the available APIs and much more.

Regards,

Morten
