SAP Cloud for Customer OData API v1 and Web Services (SOAP, A2X) is deprecated since February, 2020 release. Customers should stop using them to avoid data inconsistency, since their support is no longer available.


With the introduction of SAP Cloud for Customer OData API v2, we are deprecating OData API v1 and Web Services APIs (SOAP, A2X). Please use OData API v2 for any new project. If you have implemented integration based on the deprecated services, please adapt and switch to OData API v2.

Below you can find examples of past Web Service which were deprecated (all of them were, but these are few examples)

Why Use OData API v2:

OData API v2 covers more than 40 main business objects, allowing read and write access to more than 1000 collections (data points). OData API offers improved performance and is more versatile compared to the more traditional SOAP APIs (Web Service, A2X). The new OData API comes with enhanced documentation covering more entities, entity data model diagrams, and sample payloads for Create, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) operations.
