SAP connector for Pimcore

I am not an expert on SAP and Pimcore, so I am wondering whether there is a prebuilt connector to integrate PIMcore with SAP. Our requirement is to be able to connect, in real-time if possible, the two systems as follows:

  • to transfer product data, incl. photos, videos, etc., from SAP into PIMcore
  • to transfer pricing date from SAP into PIMcore
  • to write order data into SAP

If there is no-ready made connector that can do the above, how easy is it to build one?

Thanks

As far as I know, there is no standard API to SAP, so there is no Standard way for a connector. You have to build it manually, how easy: hard to tell without knowing how the API looks like, but surely will take couple of days to implement

Thanks for your reply. The idea is to be able to:

  1. receive product data (incl. photos, videos) from SAP into Pimcore
  2. receive product pricing from SAP into Pimcore
  3. send order data (a basket incl. one or more products) from a third-party system to SAP
    Does the above sound possible?

sure. Everything is possible with Pimcore :wink:

If you really need something close to real-time than you have to build REST API’s on both sides. For SAP there is a tutorial on youtube which will give you some insights:

On the pimcore site you might be able to use the data hub. Sending media through http requests could be problematic (but is possible), so i would consider copying the media library and write a command so that your imported data gets a reference to the copyid media library.

And whenever you have a solution, let me know. I got a similiar customer in mind who needs a similiar setup :wink:
