The following section gives a general introduction to working with yunIO. The information described in the following section is a prerequisite for all subsequent sections.
Starting yunIO #
To access the yunIO Designer, enter the designer-URL in a web browser.
The URL pattern to access the yunIO Designer is
- If the yunIO service runs on a local server, replace
- If the yunIO service does not run on the same machine as the browser, replace
[host]with the name or IP address of the host on which the service runs.
- After the installation the yunIO Designer is accessible under the default port 8077.
You can configure the port under Settings in the yunIO Designer.
Note: Make sure that the yunIO service is running and that the default port 8077 is not blocked by your firewall.
Adding an SAP Connection #
In the Connection menu you can add new SAP connections and edit or delete existing connections.
- To add a new SAP connection, click [Add Connection] (1).
To edit an existing connection, click the edit icon () of the connection you want to edit (2).
- Enter the connection information of your SAP system under System (3).
- Enter your SAP credentials under Authentication (4).

For more detailed information on establishing an SAP connection, see SAP Connection.
Creating a Service #

How to run a Service #
Web services created with yunIO can be integrated into all cloud applications that support REST API/Swagger (OpenAPI), e.g. Power Automate, Nintex, etc.
- To test a service after creation, trigger the URL of the service endpoint under Service (1). The service is then executed in your web browser.
- To integrate a yunIO web service into a tool that supports Swagger/OpenAPI, copy the code or download the service definition (2).
Note: Only services that do not require parameters supplied by a caller will display any SAP results in the browser. For parameterized services, use a tool that supports Swagger/OpenAPI definitions (e.g.Swagger Inspector, Postman) .
POST vs GET
yunIO services support the http methods
|Data Length||No restrictions.||Maximum URL length is 2048 characters.|
|Parameters||Parameters are part of the http request body.||Supports query parameters in the URL.|
|Data Safety||Parameters are not stored in the browser history or in web server logs.||Parameters are visible in the service URL. Data is cached.|
|Data Types||No restrictions.||Only supports ASCII characters.|
Recommendation: We recommend using the POST method with Transport Layer Security (HTTPS) to ensure data protection. Do not use the GET method to send sensible data, e.g. credentials.
When using the OpenAPI/Swagger definition,
GET are both available. Select the method you want to use:
Example for using
POST with an input parameter NAME1:
