The Core Module (sap.apf.core)Locate this document in the navigation structure

The core module (sap.apf.core) has a public API that supports the following:

  • Loading an analytical content configuration and other static resources

  • Creating an analysis step from the given configuration

  • Creating OData requests

  • Adding a step to an analysis path

  • Manipulating, processing, and updating the analysis path and its steps

  • Creating filters and setting a context

  • Interaction between APF and an external Web application (UI), for example, by passing callback functions

  • Error handling and sending error messages to a registered handler

  • Saving and retrieving a named analysis path on the server

  • Extending possible configurations by new representation entities

The core component contains the entire logic for path processing, but no UI logic. For more information, see Analysis Path Processing.
