In this tutorial, you will learn how to configure the SAP Cloud Platform Destination for SAP Jam Collaboration API SSO.

Details

Connectivity destinations are a part of the SAP Cloud Platform connectivity service and are used for the outbound communication of a cloud application to a remote system like SAP Jam Collaboration. They contain the connection details for the remote communication of an application. Connectivity destinations are represented by symbolic names that are used by on-demand applications to refer to remote connections. The connectivity service resolves the destination at runtime based on the symbolic name provided. The result is an object that contains customer-specific configuration details, such as the URL of the remote system or service, the authentication type, and the relative credentials.


Step 1: Create your destination configuration file
  1. Create a text file named sapjam\_developer
  2. Copy and paste the following into this file:

    Name=sapjam_developer

    tokenServiceURL=https\://developer.sapjam.com/api/v1/auth/token
    ProxyType=Internet
    URL=https\://developer.sapjam.com/api/v1/OData
    
  3. Save this file.
