In this blog post, I want to share with you how you can use Azure Event Grid to handle events from SAP S/4HANA, the leading enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. SAP S/4HANA events are business events that occur in the system, such as creating a sales order, posting a journal entry, or changing a customer address. These events can be useful for integrating SAP S/4HANA with other applications, such as analytics, workflow, or notification services.
Azure Event Grid is a cloud service that enables you to easily build event-driven applications. It allows you to subscribe to events from various sources, such as Azure services, custom applications, or third-party providers. Azure Event Grid then delivers the events to your chosen destinations, such as Azure Functions, Logic Apps, or Webhooks. You can also filter and route events based on your business logic.
To use Azure Event Grid with SAP S/4HANA events, you need to do the following steps:
- Enable event publishing in SAP S/4HANA. You can use the SAP Event Mesh service to publish events from SAP S/4HANA to a cloud-based event bus.
- Create an Azure Event Grid topic and a subscription. You can use the Azure portal or the Azure CLI to create a topic and a subscription for SAP S/4HANA events. You need to specify the endpoint of the SAP Event Mesh service as the source and the endpoint of your destination as the sink.
- Configure the event mapping and filtering. You can use the Azure portal or the Azure CLI to map and filter the events based on their type, subject, or data. For example, you can map the event type “SalesOrder.Created” to “SAP.SalesOrder.Created” and filter only the events that have a certain customer ID or sales organization.
- Test and monitor the event delivery. You can use the Azure portal or the Azure CLI to view the event delivery status and metrics. You can also use tools like Azure Monitor or Application Insights to track and analyze the event data.
That’s it! You have successfully integrated SAP S/4HANA events with Azure Event Grid. You can now leverage the power of event-driven architecture to build scalable and resilient applications that respond to business changes in real time.
