ActiveControl offers a variety of ways to integrate inbound and outbound scenarios using documented API’s. ActiveControl provides an Integration Framework that can manage outbound interactions with external systems (including queuing, re-sends, error processing and reporting) and inbound integration scenarios – those initiated by a system external to TE – by exposing several fully documented API’s and web-services that allow manipulation of TE objects by these systems.
In addition, as TE is a Netweaver certified product, all standard SAP integration techniques are available, including tRFC and IDoc communication. But for the purposes of this document, it is assumed that web services will be the preferred integration method, and these are therefore described in detail in this document.
Important: Terminology of Inbound and Outbound in this document. Inbound refers to triggers and data from a 3rd party tool into SAP/AC. Outbound refers to triggers and data from SAP/AC into a 3rd party tool.
