Brainbox Unboxing: SAP Ariba APIs

The Developer Portal provides access to solution-extending APIs that can make your organization more efficient and effective. From here, you can create applications to make web service calls. These calls can take place in various modules of SAP Ariba:

  • General
  • Ariba Network
  • Catalog
  • Procurement
  • Strategic Sourcing
  • Supplier Management

Prerequisites of using the Developer Portal:

  • Your organization must have a current license for one or more SAP Ariba solutions or an Ariba Network solution component to use the APIs. Example solutions include SAP Ariba Buying, SAP Ariba Discovery, SAP Ariba Invoice Management, SAP Ariba Payables, and others.
  • Your organization must be in the United States of America or another supported country.
  • If your organization works with the public sector, you may need to fulfill specific prerequisites prior to using certain APIs. Details are outlined in the documentation associated with each API.
  • An SAP Ariba APIs administrator account is required. Your organization’s SAP Ariba administrator can request this account at the SAP Ariba developer portal: https://developer.ariba.com/api. Once your SAP Ariba APIs administrator access to the SAP Ariba developer portal has been established, additional developer accounts can be added to your organization.
  • You must use a compatible browser. SAP Ariba APIs supports the following browsers:
    • Firefox 47.0.1
    • Chrome 63.0.3
    • Safari 11.0.2

SAP Ariba ERP Integration for Suppliers


SAP Ariba is one of the market-leading procurement platforms for B2B business. Customers and suppliers alike benefit from fully electronic purchasing processes because Ariba enables them to improve their trading partner relationships and create value rapidly.

Suppliers reach numerous customers, associations, and purchasing organizations through the Ariba network at a single point of integration. Through collaborative e-commerce, they can automatically receive orders from their customers and send invoices electronically. International suppliers maintain multiple accounts, one per country, to serve customers worldwide.

Suppliers receive invitations from their customers to use Ariba. With acceptance, they log on to the portal. They can specify through which channels they would like to receive orders and create order confirmations, shipping notifications, invoices, etc. In addition to e-mail, fax, online or direct connection via cXML, the electronic transmission via an integration platform via EDI or web services is also an option to increase efficiency, reduce costs and generate incremental revenues.
 

Importance of SAP Ariba ERP Integration for Suppliers

Suppliers benefit even more from efficiency and cost savings when they handle increasing volumes via SAP Ariba and digitize associated processes. The best way to do this is to comprehensively integrate all systems involved.

Using middleware such as SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite, seamlessly connected to the customers of the Ariba network. This also includes a deep ERP or SAP integration. For the latter, both the classic tRFC connection and connections to S/4 systems are supported via corresponding API interfaces. The SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite contains all integration options that are necessary to integrate into existing IT landscapes. It includes standardized technologies for all types of data exchange, business processes that can be extended at any time, and the option of transferring them to the cloud.

The main advantage is not only the automation of the entire order-to-cash cycle, but also the rapid and transparent handling of all processes. The speed of transactions and the establishment and intensity of business relationships between customers and suppliers are increasing, and suppliers are benefiting from faster cash flows.
 

Technical Challenges of SAP Ariba ERP Integration

For integration, systems, processes and trading partners have to be connected simply, quickly and without much effort.

The SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite ensures this seamless integration of order processing and invoice automation. Preconfigured processes based on standardized Ariba partner mappings are the basis for fast implementation of B2B message exchange, while customer-specific adaptations in the area of data conversion and validation are also supported. In addition, SEEBURGER Business Tracking can be used to generate reports and monitor functions. 

A classic EDI connection of these processes is possible, but via web services it is more convenient to communicate in real time. HTTPS requests/responses that request the Ariba Cloud centrally are automatically adapted to changing URLs and the corresponding content is nested and transported.

The following figure shows the processes described between an SAP system and the Ariba Cloud. The various API interfaces are coupled with an integration platform such as the SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite. More demanding requirements for messaging, queuing, or mapping a business process model are supported. The leading system can be an SAP ERP or any other ERP such as Oracle.

Further integration requirements

Catalog data is usually approached as a separate topic.

Static catalog data is often manually uploaded into the Ariba Supplier environment. They contain purchasable items that are usually permanently available. Frequently changing article data can be automatically uploaded to the Ariba portal as a zip file via web services after certain time intervals via the integration platform. For critical or configurable products, a  current pullout is possible which provides the latest price/item data or availability. The integration of a multi-backend landscape is  necessary in nearly all scenarios. This mainly includes a Production Information Management (PIM), a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) or an inventory management system, as shown in the figure below.

Other marketplaces can then also be connected quickly and easily using the integration platform.

Depending on the supplier, Ariba Supplier Integration consists of a mixture of API-based real-time processes and batch-oriented B2B/EDI processes. This illustrates the need to cover a wide range of integration requirements via a hybrid integration platform and to bundle all interfaces to reduce complexity.

SAP Ariba is a cloud supply chain and procurement platform used by mid-to-large companies to manage the entire source-to-pay process. It’s a powerful solution that offers financial visibility, supplier data, and payment automation for holistic access and increased automation. 

But there are a few things you’ll need to consider before you build a proactive or customer-requested integration to its API. Let’s dive in. 

sap ariba integration

API Protocol: Is SAP Ariba SOAP or REST?

Ariba’s API is a hybrid and supports two standards - REST and cXML. In practice, that means that most GET calls can use the REST service, whereas most POST/ PATCH/ DELETE operations are better served by the cXML service. Given that Ariba connects both buyers and sellers in its network, whether you're automating internal workflows or building a digital product that needs to integrate with Ariba, use cases where you only need to pull data from Ariba are few and far between. 

Ariba Authentication

Ariba uses a custom auth method. It requires that for every object you want to work with (GET or POST/PATCH), you have to create an object-specific ‘app’ in Ariba, which creates a unique API key. Authenticating requires a client ID, client secret, and all of the API keys for the various data objects you want to work with in order to get the access token. The API key and network ID are available from the sandbox and the access token is generated by a /POST call to a specific URL. Custom auth methods generally require unique IF/ THEN/ ELSE logic in your code.

Documentation For the Ariba API

Ariba offers a massive amount of comprehensive documentation. For those who aren’t super familiar with XML schemas, Ariba lays out examples for only 2-3 of its 8-10 objects in its documentation. 

Because cXML is an XML language, it’s defined by Document Type Definitions (DTDs), which are available for all cXML versions at cXML.org. The DTD format can be tricky to extract/get a hang of, so keep that in mind.

Polling

The native Ariba API does not support polling capabilities. With this, you’ll need to add-on or amend the API to add these features so you’re alerted by any state changes, workflow executions, trigger actions, etc. 

Integrate More Easily

Our team just released our Ariba Element (what we call our industry-leading, robust APIs), which offers all the capabilities you need out-of-the-box (say goodbye to developer time spent adding a polling facade..)

Our Elements are RESTful, feature-loaded, and ready for quick integration into your digital product. Learn more about our platform or check out our Catalog of 200+ Elements.
