Subscription ManagementLocate this document in the navigation structure


This service will support creation of subscriptions only in the context of the new OData library 1.0.

An administrator can subscribe for notifications on behalf of a user or a role (a set of users). In both the cases, the users subscribed by the administrator gets the notifications and not the administrator. The notifications for the subscribed collections are pushed from the SAP backend to the SAP Gateway Hub system when the collections are modified. SAP Gateway then pushes the notifications using HTTP POST to all subscribers based on their delivery address. In case of roles, they are resolved by application specific implementation in the SAP Gateway system and corresponding users are sent notifications.
