To integrate SAP Success Factors (SF) with Beekeeper, follow these steps:
To start, go to the Admin Center and create a user (click Update User Information and Add New Employee).
The specific details don't matter, but we recommend you set the user’s name to something like “Beekeeper Connector”.
Once the user has been created, go back to the Admin Center. We’re going to reset our new user’s password, so in the “Manage Employees” section, click “Reset User Passwords”. Search for our new user (as below) by clicking “Search Users”.
Select the result you want (it’s an easily-missed radio bubble), and then enter a new, secure (preferably auto-generated) password. Make sure you record the password to share with us later. You’ll also want to take note of the username of this user, which is conveniently available in the search.
If the process worked, you’ll see a message saying “1 users passwords have been reset”, as below.
Now return to the Admin Center and click on Manage Employees > Set User Permissions > Manage Permission Groups.
Click “Create New” to make a new Permission Group. Name the permission group “Beekeeper Connector Permission Group” and assign it to the “Beekeeper Connector” user we created earlier.
Once you’re finished, click “Done” to create the Permission Group.
Finally, head back to the Admin Center and click on Manage Employees > Set User Permissions > Manage Permission Roles. On that page, click “Create New” and name your role “Beekeeper Connector Permission Role”, as below.
Then, click “Permission…” and on the next menu scroll down to “Manage Integration Tools” (it’s under the Administrator Permissions section) and select “Admin access to OData API”. Then click Done.
Now, under “Grant this role to…”, click “Add…” to associate our Permission Group to our Permission Role.
Click “Select…” and select “Beekeeper Connector Permission Group”. Then hit Done on both screens.
Finally, click “Save Changes”.
And now you’re good to go!
What should I send to Beekeeper?
Beekeeper needs a few credentials to connect to SAP:
- The username of the Beekeeper Connector user
- The password for the Beekeeper Connector user
- Your SAP Company ID
- The URL you use to access SuccessFactors (e.g., https://company-name.successfactors.com)
Uninstalling the SAP SuccessFactors Integration
If the app is uninstalled in Beekeeper, you should also revoke the permissions of the Beekeeper Connector Permission Role that we created in SAP.
