The New Application Interface Register for SAP Integration

Application Interface Register for SAP Integration

SAP PE Build Partnership is applicable to all partners who complement SAP Application’s features by extending it. So, SAP PE Build Partners uses APIs to get and post data to/from SAP applications. There is a very important announcement that happened in November 2020 which was towards SAP PE Build Partners. It is being notified in SAP Partner Portal that from February 15th, 2021 all PE Build Partner’s Solutions that integrate or connect to SAP Applications via APIs must use a Unique Integration Key provided by SAP. This is also known as the Application Interface Key. They must use this unique key in the API Header.

SAP PE Build Partners need to locate and use the Application Interface Key which will be required to call every SAP LoB API as part of the Application Interface Register. Each Registered Partner Application will get a unique 8 character alphanumeric key which will be called as Application Interface Key. Partners can deploy qualified and compliant applications by providing the Application Interface Key when calling SAP APIs.

Where to get Application Interface Key

If you are an SAP PE Build Partner, you can access the Application Interface Key through:

If you are using Microservice Architecture with multiple services calling SAP APIs, the key header should be included every time.
