Has anyone successfully used SAP Business By Design as a data source on Skuid? If so, how?

    Hi Matt, could you share more details about your question, e.g. a link to an online documentation? In general, Skuid has greater support for JSON-based responses, but XML APIs are also supported. Please find more information here: https://docs.skuid.com/latest/en/data/rest/

    For others who come across this post in the future, we were able to successfully establish connectivity to Matt's SAP Business By Design instance with the following configuration:

    Data Source Type: OData
    Data Source configuration details:
    - URL: copy the Service Metadata URL that is displayed within your SAP OData services configuration, but make sure to NOT include the "/$metadata" at the end
    - Authentication: Basic HTTP Authentication. Enter your Username and Password.
    - OData version: 2
    - Supports batch operations: leave un-checked

    The biggest problem that we ran into when troubleshooting this was the "/$metadata" at the end of the data source URL. Once we removed that, everything worked fine.

    Also, for anyone in need of help setting up the odata service in SAP Business by design, I used some of these api samples.
