API for SAP Success Factors (Employee Central)

Jump to solution

We are moving from PeopleSoft to SAP Success Factors (Employee Central) and will need to switch our Employee Information import adapter from PeopleSoft to SAP Success Factors. We have been using a flat xml file exported from PeopleSoft and then imported into Flexera. We are wondering if there is an API we can use instead to import this information straight from SAP Success Factors instead of using a flat file export/import.

@EHacking - Today, there is no published API for importing data into Flexera One ITAM.  Assuming that SAP Success Factors does have an API for extracting the data you need, a process could be built such as:

1) Create a PowerShell Script (or something equivalent), that authenticates and connects to the Success Factor API to pull the data that is needed
2) Post the data from API into a structured format that a Business Adapter can read, such as CSV
3) Have a Business Adapter read the CSV file for import

Thanks. That's what we have planned. It would be nice to have a connector already set up by Flexera, though.

Flexera's connector is included with its SaaS mgt. offering, please refer to Employee Central (SAP SuccessFactors)
