Follow the guidance to test the newly installed and configured module on SAP S/4HANA Cloud Essentials.

Product Master Data

In this section we’ll show you how to upload an attachment to a Product so it’s shown in the Business Object Types > Product folder in Content Services.

  1. Log in to SAP S/4HANA Cloud Essentials.
  2. Open the Product Master Data app and select any Material (e.g. FG111):

    Product Master Data App

  3. Navigate to section Attachments - Document Management Service on the Material.
  4. Click Edit and upload a document with the Upload button.

    Choose Office Documents as Document Type for now:

    Upload Attachment

  5. Once the document is successfully uploaded, it is set to Draft mode.

    Note: DO NOT CLICK the Save button for now. We just want to verify that Draft mode is supported.

    Uploaded Attachment

  6. Log in to Content Services and navigate to the Knowledge Provider > DMS_PCD1 folder in the repository.

    You’ll see the document is available in this folder but it hasn’t yet been moved to the final/expected folder (i.e. under Business Object Types > DocumentInfoRecord). This is because it’s still in Draft mode:

    Draft Mode Content Services

  7. Now, switch back to SAP S/4HANA Cloud Essentials and click Save for the recently stored Attachment.

    Note that the Product is not in Edit mode anymore, hence the attachment is no longer in Draft mode:

    Saved Attachment

  8. Again, switch back to Content Services and refresh the page.

    The document is removed from the previous location and is no longer in Knowledge Provider > DMS_PCD1. It’s now been moved to the final folder under Business Object Types > DocumentInfoRecord:

    Saved Attachment

In this section we’ll show you how to upload an attachment to a Material Master so it’s shown in the Business Object Types > Product folder in Content Services.

  1. Go to transaction MM03 and choose any material:

    SAP transaction MM03

  2. In the GOS menu click Create… > Create Attachment and upload any desired file. This stores it in Content Services via CMIS:

    SAP transaction MM03

  3. Verify the availability by checking the attachment list. Open the document, so that it’s retrieved from Content Services via CMIS:

    SAP transaction MM03

Troubleshooting

Sorry you’re having trouble with the Content Connector for SAP Cloud. Your problem may be related to any one of the following issues.

SAP on-premises: RFC destination connection test fails (HTTP response code 400)

The connection test of the created RFC destination (SM59) returns with 400 response code:

RFC Connection Test fails

This may be due to an incorrect Path Prefix specified for the target system. Make sure you use the exact value mentioned in step 3 of creating the RFC Connection.

SAP on-premises: RFC destination connection test fails (HTTP response code 402)

The connection test of the created RFC destination (SM59) returns with 402 response code:

RFC Connection Test fails

This may be due to a missing (or expired) license file. Make sure you’ve applied a valid license file.

SAP on-premises: Upload of attachments fails

The upload of an attachment fails in any transaction with the following error:

SAP Application Error

In most cases, this is due to an expired license file. Make sure you’ve applied a valid license file for the SAP Cloud Connector.

If the license exists and is valid, this error may be due to incorrect configuration of the related repository in OAC0. In this case, check the repository configuration again.

SAP Cloud: Upload of attachments fails

The upload of an attachment fails in any Fiori app with the following error:

SAP Application Error

If it’s not related to a missing or expired license (see above), make sure you’ve entered the correct Content Services CMIS endpoint for the Destination in the SAP Business Technology Platform.
