The Custom Actions are included in an ERPConnect Services license and are installed on the SharePoint server with a separate installer. After the installation, the Custom Actions are available in the Nintex Workflow Designer and can added easily to the workflow via drag & drop. The Call SAP Function Custom Action enables you to call any remote-enabled SAP function module or BAPI for read/write access to SAP.

  • SAP Tables and Views
  • SAP Queries
  • SAP BW InfoCubes and BEx Queries and
  • SAP Function modules (to read and write data)
