    1. Select the group template.
    2. Enter a group name
    3. Optionally, enter a description of the group.
    4. Click to select the Group Permissions.

The available options for adding a business records application are:

    • SAP CRM
    • SAP ECC (SD)
  • SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer: Preconfigured integration of SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer only.
  • SuccessFactors Learning: Preconfigured integration of SuccessFactors Learning only.
  • SAP Cloud Platform and Third Party OData Source: Develop a new integration of an application accessed by the SAP Cloud Platform or one that already has its own OData API. Please note that if you are developing a new or custom integration with a business records application, you should be following the procedures in the External Applications section of the SAP Jam Developer Guide.
