Effective December 1, 2020, SAP Concur will be retiring the existing Concur Request APIs (v1.0, v3.0, and v3.1). These APIs are replaced by the Concur Request v4 API.
The Concur Request APIs v1.0, v3.0, and v3.1 only support the previous authentication method, which is not best security practice and does not meet the Oauth2 standards. In addition, the previous versions of the Concur Request APIs provided limited possibilities for moving a Request through the approval workflow, as well as managing custom simple & connected list fields. These issues are resolved with the new Concur Request v4 API.
In addition, SAP Concur has run a backward compatibility project between the current Concur Request APIs and the new Concur Request v4 API (not iso-compatibility) in order to have the vast majority of use cases managed in the previous versions also be managed in the Concur Request v4 API.
SAP Concur is deprecating the Travel Profile Notification v1 APIs due to low usage.
The Travel Profile Notification v1 APIs support older, less secure authentication methods.
The Travel Profile v1 APIs is being deprecated in accordance with the SAP Concur API Lifecycle & Deprecation Policy.
The Financial Integration Service (FIS) allows an external system to interact with financial documents generated from SAP Concur, for financial postings into their financial system. This service provides an automated solution to request available data objects such as approved expense reports, cash advances, and invoices to import to the client internal system, with an opportunity to send posting confirmation back into SAP Concur before the object is locked down and cannot be altered in SAP Concur.
With FIS there are several benefits:
The Financial Integration feature is available for all clients using Expense and Invoice for Professional and Standard Editions. This setting is only visible to the SAP Concur Internal users who log into the company as SAP Concur admin from HMC. Invoice Standard customers should reach out to their Concur representative to receive more information on implementation. Clients will need to reach out to their PM to enable the FI feature.
