OData does not foresee initial values for the following EDM data types:

Fiori Elements UIs offer the empty operator in filter bars for these fields. Although they appear as visually empty in the UIs, the actual value sent to the client is null.

To be able to select records with empty values for these data types, the client filters null values and the filter is transformed to filter for initial values for the backend. Real null values cannot be retrieved from the database by filtering for them in OData V2.

You can use your company's login credentials company (IdP) to log in to the SAP Conversational AI platform using your tenant-specific URL.

Community Bot Import

If you are using the enterprise edition of the platform, you can directly import (fork) your bots from the community tenant into your enterprise tenant. This is to ensure that you do not need to manually recreate your bots and leverage the data isolation provided by your own tenant.

Besides this you can continue to use destination services for API calls or single-sign-on with the SAP Web Client with your enterprise tenant.

A new property, aad.user.attributes.membership.active, retrieves information about the groups to which the users from a Microsoft Azure AD source or proxy system are assigned. There is also an update in the user mappings of the default transformations.

If you add a new Microsoft Azure AD system (source or proxy), the transformations will be up-to-date by default.

If you have a previously existing and customized system, and you do not want to create a new one, just add the following mapping to the user section:

{
    "sourcePath": "$.groups",
    "preserveArrayWithSingleElement": true,
    "optional": true,
    "targetPath": "$.groups"
},

There is a change on the way a user can start operating with the Identity Provisioning admin console if they buy the service after September 1, 2020. Also, for such kind of tenants, the following systems are currently not available:

  • SAP Cloud Platform Java/HTML5 Apps
  • Local Identity Directory

However, if you have purchased your Identity Provisioning before September 1 but enable the service on your subaccounts after this date, these two system types will be available for you.
