SAP Integration Suite
SAP Integration Suite combines the integration capabilities such as Cloud Integration (Process Integration), API Management, Integration Advisor, and Open Connectors into a cohesive and simplified toolkit for enterprise integrations. To provide a comprehensive integration experience, these services are not available separately, but only as part of the Integration Suite.
The Integration Suite includes all integration capabilities in simple service plans. To know more on these plans, see Integration Suite service catalog.
This part of the series lets you experience few capabilities offered by SAP Integration Suite. For the complete series, see Request Product Details with an Integration Scenario.
IMPORTANT: Trial accounts are not intended for productive usage or team development. See: Trial Scope. If you’re using Integration Suite from a production account for your proof of concepts or real-time business cases, refer to the product documentation on SAP Help Portal for step-by-step explanation of the initial set up and further information.
The Use Case
Using this scenario, you design and execute an integration flow that reads product details from a public product catalog (
WebShop) for a given product identifier. Product details include data such as the product name and price, for example. To accomplish the scenario, you use SAP Integration Suite, and in particular, its capabilities Cloud Integration and API Management.
You use Cloud Integration to design and deploy an integration flow. Then, you use API Management to expose the integration flow endpoint as an API.
- You also define how to access the API in terms of authentication by assigning a dedicated predefined policy template.
- Using this policy template, you define API access based on the OAuth client credentials grant method.
- Finally, you use API Management to call the API and get the product details in a response.
- Step 1
WHERE TO START:
Are you new to SAP BTP? - skip the rest of the note and continue with the tutorial.

To know more about resources offered by the Integration Suite Launchpad, see Working with Integration Suite Launchpad.
To access each capability’s tile, you must first assign capability-specific roles which is explained in the next step.
- Step 4
In this step, you execute a booster that will assign you the necessary roles to access and use the activated capabilities, and create service instance of Process Integration Runtime.
A Booster is a set of guided and interactive steps that enable you to select, configure, and consume services on SAP BTP to achieve a specific technical goal. In this case, the Integration Suite booster will help you with assigning roles and creating service instances.
A service instance defines how a service of SAP BTP (in our case, the Process Integration Runtime service) can be called from a remote component. In the context of Cloud Integration, a service instance is the definition of an OAuth client. The service key generated out of the service instance contains credentials and other information that is required at a later step to call the integration flow.
Navigate to the overview page of your SAP BTP global account.
Choose Boosters on the left navigation pane.
From the list of boosters, look out for the tile Enable Integration Suite. You can start the booster execution by choosing Start on the tile.
Alternatively, you can open the tile, read the information, and choose Start in the booster page.
In the Configure Subaccount tab, select your subaccount, organization, and space in which you have subscribed for Integration Suite service. Choose Next.
In the Select Activated Capabilities tab, select Design, Develop, and Operate Integration Scenarios and Design, Develop, and Manage APIs. Choose Next.
IMPORTANT: Make sure that you select only the capabilities that you activated in step 3.
In the Review tab, check your selections and choose Finish. You can see that the booster is being processed.
Upon successful execution of the booster, choose Go to Application. Also, choose Access Service Instance(s) to view the service instance and service key.
