3210642 - Is HTTP connector in CPI supporting OAuth for SuccessFactors connection?


You are using an HTTP adapter in CPI to perform API calls to SuccessFactors because some functions like "generateNextPersonID" are not available in the SuccessFactors adapter.

You want to confirm if HTTP adapter is able to connect to SuccessFactors using OAuth instead of basic authentication.

Currently the HTTP adapter is not supporting OAuth when connecting to SuccessFactors.

However this is already being worked internally by the responsible teams and should be available in the future. Once it gets implemented you'll receive a communication.
