Testing SAP APIs: Strategy and Execution

With our new SAP Press book “Testing SAP APIs: Strategy and Execution” which describes many different strategies on how to approach this topic and presents a set of advice on how to realize the vision from the strategy you will:

  • Learn how to set up your SAP API testing strategy
  • Learn more about SAP S/4HANA conversion API testing

  • Explore how to test SAP Cloud Platform Integration migrations,

Why should you test your SAP API?

Most of the modern enterprise class systems are using tons of APIs to communicate with other systems and business partners (EDI integration). For many companies SAP application integration is the main sales pipeline without which business cannot function. However when we start doing changes to the SAP application integration, testing them is still done mostly in a manual way – as if we were doing coding in the 70s or 80s. The point that many companies are missing is that SAP API testing for many project types like:

  • SAP Process Orchestration migrations 
  • SAP Clould Platform migrations 
  • S/4HANA conversions (brownfield, bluefield, greenfield) 

can be set up with almost no effort compared to the old fashioned User Interface (UI) testing just because an existing set of messages can be used.
