SAP SuccessFactors SFAPI User
To collect data from SAP SuccessFactors for Business Process Monitoring or Exception Monitoring an endpoint needs to be created in SAP Cloud ALM.
To create this endpoint a user is needed in SAP SuccessFactors. It is recommended to create a dedicated user in SAP SuccessFactors (e.g. SFAPI) for this purpose instead of using a personal or an admin user.

To avoid that the password for the user expires, please create a login exception for the SFAPI user.

- Click on "Set API Login Exceptions"
- Click the "Add" button
- Enter the username of the SFAPI user
