Gathering the information for linking SAP SuccessFactors
This guide will outline the steps needed to find your SAP SuccessFactors OAuth credentials and set up your integration.
Step One: Find your SAP SuccessFactors API Server URL
1.) To find your API Server URL, go to this link.
2.) In the listed API Server URLs, search for the environment that matches your subdomain. For example, if your domain was https://salesdemo4.successfactors.com, search for salesdemo4.
**If you are using the Merge sandbox, please enter: api68sales.successfactors.com**
3.) Copy the entire URL.
In this example, it would be: apisalesdemo4.successfactors.com/
4.) Enter your SAP SuccessFactors API Server URL into the integration authorization component as shown below:

2.) Click Register Client Application.
3.) Fill out Application Name & Application URL (what actually goes in these fields is not important).
4.) Click Generate X.509 Certificate. Fill out Common Name (name doesn't matter) and hit Generate.
5.) Once the certificate populates, download and save it. You will have downloaded a file called Certificate.pem.
6.) Click Register (it will have replaced the Generate button).
7.) Back on your Manage OAuth2 Client Applications, go to the application you just created and click Edit.
8.) You will now see an API key listed - this is your Client ID. Copy and save this Key.
9.) Open up the "Certificate.pem" file that you downloaded previously in a text editor. The string between ——BEGIN ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY——- and —-END ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY——- is your Client Secret. Copy the Client Secret and save.
