AccountCollection

Customized header

Use this field set to add customized HTTP request headers for implementing specific HTTP requests other than the ones listed in the Using Customized Headers section (SAP S/4HANA Read Snap). Only one customized header can be specified in each row. Click  to add a new row in this table and define the values accordingly.

This field set comprises the following fields:

  • Field name
  • Field value

Field name

StringThe field name of the customized HTTP request header.N/AIf-Match

Field value

StringThe field value for the above field in the customized HTTP request header.N/AW/"'82F636DC08F14D22260CE67E505C231D0D2ACD95'"

Key parameter

Required. This field set enables you to specify the key parameters for a specific entity. Providing values for all key parameters in the drop-down list enables SAP S/4HANA to identify a unique record. 

Key parameters are NOT the same as filters which can return multiple records. To use a filter like normal select, use the parameters at the Filter records section instead.

Click  to add a new row in this table and define the values accordingly. Only one key parameter can be specified in each row. 

This field set comprises the following fields:

  • Field name
  • Field value

Field name

StringSpecify the reference parameter.N/AaccountID

Field value

StringSpecify the value for the reference parameter in this field. The data type—String, Integer, Boolean or any other—depends on the Field name you specified for the parameter.N/ATEST_001

Connection details

Use this section of Snap Settings to specify the connectivity parameters: timeout, retry count and retry interval. 

This field set comprises the following fields:

  • TimeOut
  • Maximum request attempts
  • RetryInterval

TimeOut

Integer

Required. Enter, in seconds, the duration for which the Snap must try to establish connection with SAP S/4HANA On-Premise instance. If the connection cannot be established within this duration, the Snap times out, writes the event to the log, and waits until the specified RetryInterval before attempting to reconnect.

300

120

Maximum request attempts

Integer

Required. Specify an integer value to set the maximum number of reconnection attempts that the Snap must perform, in case of connection failure or timeout.

0

5

RetryInterval

Integer

Required. Enter, in seconds, the duration for which the Snap must wait between two reconnection attempts, until the number of retries is reached.

Snap Execution 

String

Indicates how the Snap must be executed. Available options are:

  • Validate & Execute: Performs limited execution of the Snap (up to 50 records) during Pipeline validation; performs full execution of the Snap (unlimited records) during Pipeline execution.
  • Execute only: Performs full execution of the Snap during Pipeline execution; does not execute the Snap during Pipeline validation.
  • Disabled: Disables the Snap and, by extension, its downstream Snaps.

Additional information

Here is some information to assist you while using the SAP S/4HANA Delete Snap.

Snap General Behavior

The SAP S/4HANA Delete Snap supports the following:

  • DELETE operation to delete data from SAP S/4HANA On-Premise instance.
  • Customized HTTP Header. For more information, see Using Customized Headers (SAP S/4HANA Read Snap).
  • Display of only the delete-compatible input parameter set from the upstream input Snap.
  • Dynamic loading of API metadata with a Parent-child dependency structure. This means that you can:
    • Select an API object from the API object field to view only entities that are related to the API object and support delete queries (delete operations).
    • And then, select an entity to view values for only delete-compatible parameters related to this entity in Key parameter field.

Using Customized Headers

See Using Customized Headers (in SAP S/4HANA Read Snap). 

Examples
