SFSFOnboardingCandidateInfo - Scenario with SOAP instead of OData

Hi Team,

I would like to inform you that am implementing Successfactors implementation in SAP PI 7.3.1.

I already implemented Employee Profile and Job Requisition successfully. Now am implementing Onboarding Scenario.

These are the below tasks I handled and technical flow process in Onboarding.

1. Already downloaded latest patches and installed Integration Addon in both HCM and PI system.

2. As per standard packages given by SAP, please find the below interface flow.

There are 2 flows.


          a) ECC Proxy <----> PI <----> SFSF (OData/SOAP API in SFSF Adapter.

          b) ECC Proxy <----> PI <----> SOAP Axis (Begin Session Scenario)

          c) ECC Proxy <----> PI <----> SOAP Axis (NEW HIRE Scenario)

          d) ECC Proxy <----> PI <----> SOAP Axis (Cancel Session Scenario)



Now My issue is with point a)

AS IS - As per SAP standard packages we need to first fetch the candidate Information from SFSF back to SAP in a synchronous interface from ECC to PI to SFSF vice versa. using SFSF Adapter either ODATA or SOAP protocol.

Limitations: In order to deploy or use SFSF Adapter as per compatability matrix my PI system needs to upgrade which is not possible currently due to many other projects and their golive dependencies.

I already achieved all other Employee Profile and Job Requisition using SOAP Axis framework including Session Handling and interface functionality. Even in Onboarding New hire and begin session scenarios are also using SOAP AXIS framework.

TO BE - Hence I would like to use SOAP AXIS framework to fetch the employee records using SOAP Axis framework.

For that I need SOAP END POINT URL and its WSDL file to fetch the CANDIDATE INFO.

My Observations:

Unfortunately I tried to search all SDN and Marketplace threads but I couldnt able to find a WSDL links or SOAP scenarios related links to handle CandidateInfo through SOAP Call.

Can anyone help me did you achieved this functionlity using SOAP Call or SOAP UI or anywhere?

Note: Until I fetch the Candidate info - ONB-NEWHIRE scenario cannot be triggered. We cannot onboarding candidate unless there are candidates in ECC.

Kindly help me and do the needful.
