Create a Destination on SAP Cloud Platform

Create a Destination to allow SAP Cloud Platform to read/write data

Details

You will learn

Destinations are used for the outbound communication of your application to a remote system (which can be a cloud or on-premise system). You will create a destination by giving it a name, URL of the remote system or service, the authentication type, and some other configuration data.

The data source you will use in this tutorial series is called “Northwind”, which is a publicly accessible OData source hosted by http://www.odata.org:

Northwind comes in several versions. The tutorials currently use either V2 (http://services.odata.org/V2/Northwind/Northwind.svc/) or V3 (http://services.odata.org/V3/Northwind/Northwind.svc/). To support both versions, and other versions that may be added later, you will create a generic connection to the Northwind service. The exact path - and exact version - will be configured in later tutorials.


Step 1: Log into SAP Cloud Platform
