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.
