SAP Fieldglass scenarios covered by Focused Run

SAP Fieldglass integration happens via two major areas, batch integration and real-time integration. Batch integration is mainly used for master data like user data, organizational data and so on. Real-time Event-driven integration is used for data that needs to be exchanged based on workflows and in real-time like work orders, invoiced etc.

The following SAP Fieldglass scenarios are currently covered Focused Run:

  • Subscription Activity: Errors that happen during the data exchange for the batch integration
  • Integration Audit Trail: Errors that happen after the delivery during the data consumption
  • Real-time Event-driven data: Errors that happen during the data exchange of workflow-based information (Planned)

Preparations for SAP Fieldglass 

Maintain Fieldglass Partner

To connect to Fieldglass via any API you need to have a Fieldglass Partner Key. Usually, you get this partner key as soon as you integrate with Fieldglass via any web service API. This is usually already done during the Fieldglass Implementation. You can use this same partner key for the Focused Run integration.

If you didn't integrate via a web service API with Fieldglass but instead e.g. use file integration, you might not have a Fieldglass partner key yet.

To request a partner key for the Focused Run Integration you can either create a ticket with the SAP Fieldglass Service Desk or contact your Account Service Representative.
