Application: Multi-layer extensibility for enterprise portal (Patent ID: US20240095239A1)

The patent filed by SAP SE describes a system and method for facilitating extensibility for an enterprise portal in a cloud computing environment. The system includes a multi-level extensibility framework server that provides a graphical view of existing services of the enterprise portal to the user, receives extension information for technical layers, generates an intelligent extension proposal based on the received information, displays simulated results, and transfers extension fields, entities, and mapping to multiple technical layers of the portal. The extensibility framework server utilizes metadata from different technical layers, such as the enterprise portal design system layer, cloud application programming model layer, cloud integration layer, and ERP solution layer, to generate the extension proposal and facilitate the transfer of extensions.

Furthermore, the system allows for adjustments to the intelligent extension proposal by the user and includes frameworks for reading field extensions and tables via an API, as well as determining intra and inter-layer data mapping. The extensibility relationship framework provided by the system supports extensibility in various models, including REST ABAP RAP for on-premises applications, UI elements, CAP model for cloud-native applications, and cloud integration suite. The method described in the patent involves providing a graphical view of existing services, receiving extension information, generating an intelligent extension proposal, displaying simulated results, and transferring extensions based on user confirmation. The system aims to streamline the process of extending and customizing enterprise portals in a cloud computing environment by automating the proposal generation and transfer of extensions across different technical layers.
