You cannot edit the mappings between SuccessFactors and BMC Helix Business Workflows fields provided by the integration.

Task 5: To deploy and enable the project

Deployment is a one-time activity that initializes the integration configurations. The UI displays a message for the deployment status.

To deploy the project and then enable the integration:

  1. To deploy the project, next to the project name, click the ellipsis ..., and select Deploy Project.
  2. To enable the integration, next to the Enable Integrations workflow, click the ellipsis ..., and select Deploy

The following image shows the steps to deploy the project and enable it by deploying the workflow:

After you enable the project, you can perform multiple SuccessFactors operations, such as retrieving employee information from SuccessFactors or updating an employee's address or legal name in SuccessFactors, by creating a case in BMC Helix Business Workflows.

Task 6: To retrieve the BMC Helix Business Workflows operation details from the SuccessFactors API

To complete the integration, retrieve service URLs for the operations you want to perform by using the integration.

  1. Select API Manager > My APIs.

  2. Open the SuccessFactors API and perform the following operations:
    1. From the top of the page, copy the service URL. 
      The format of the service URL includes the BMC Helix iPaaS host name, environment, and the SuccessFactors operation. For example, https://<hostname>/<environmentName>/<integrationName>/<SuccessFactorsOperation>.
    2. Add this URL as the Path when you define the web requests for the SuccessFactors use cases in BMC Helix Business Workflows. Replace <SuccessFactorsOperation> with one of the following values, depending on the operation you want to perform:
      • getEmployee 
      • updateEmployeeAddress 
      • updateEmployeeName

After you enable the integration and configure BMC Helix Business Workflows to receive the SuccessFactors data, you can perform multiple actions in SuccessFactors, such as retrieving employee information from SuccessFactors or updating an employee's address or legal name in SuccessFactors.

(Optional) Task 7: To set the time for API debug mode

By default, the debug mode is set to 2 hours after you run the integration. Debug logs are updated for the time set for the debug mode. To increase the debug mode for a longer period of time, perform the following steps:

  1. In BMC Helix iPaaS, powered by Jitterbit, select API Manager > My APIs.

  2. Open the SuccessFactors API.

  3. Select Enable Debug Mode Until: and set it for the required date and time.

  4. Save and publish the API.

Task 8: To set up BMC Helix Business Workflows to use the SuccessFactors API by using BMC Helix iPaaS

After you deploy the integration, configure BMC Helix Business Workflows to use the SuccessFactors API to perform operations in SuccessFactors from BMC Helix Business Workflows. Complete the following procedures to configure BMC Helix Business Workflows to use SuccessFactors APIs.
