A typical use case is where an external application uploads a file to a S3 bucket. Once the file upload is complete, Amazon S3 will generate a event notification. This notification can be forward to an Amazon SQS queue, an Amazon SNS topic or something else. In this blog, we describe the steps required to handle the S3 – SQS event notification. Once the event is published to SQS queue, SAP PO will use the Advantco AWS adapter to pull the event message from SQS. The event message has all the information required for us to query the S3 file. We use Async – Sync bridge feature in this scenario to return the file for downstream processing.
