Handling data with care and delivering a positive experience for our customers is paramount at SAP Concur. To ensure an appropriate level of data security and good customer experience, all apps that integrate and appear in the App Center go through our App Review process.
NOTE: This only applies to developers who are building an integration across multiple clients (that is, an app that would appear in the App Center or TMC integrations). SAP Concur clients who are using these APIs for interaction with their own data do not need to go through certification.
Start with an overview of the whole process: API documentation. During the Business Development phase, you will be provided access to a Professional Edition Sandbox. Sandboxes are required for partners or customers looking to use SAP Concur APIs to read and write data from SAP Concur. It is important that you contact your assigned technical resource at SAP Concur to gain access to a sandbox that best fits your scenario. If you are unsure of your technical contact, consider these 3 scenarios:
You will continue to use this sandbox during your development and certification. Once a Certification Project Manager is assigned to your team, you will be provided access to another Standard Edition sandbox that will be used to validate token management across different data centers and, if necessary, differences between Professional Edition and Standard Edition.
As you develop your app, your Certification Project Manager will record the exact APIs (including the version and verbs) that you will use for your application. See the requirements to pass certification in these Overview docs (including Support requirements expected of the Partner):
Note: These do not apply a Triplink app integration.
Once you complete the walkthrough demonstration(s) of your integration, you may be asked for additional information or be requested to make changes to your app integration depending on the outcome of the review.
After your app is approved, your SAP Concur App Center Listing will be reviewed before publishing in the SAP Concur App Center.
SAP Concur conducts an initial application and security review in the sandbox environment. For solutions that process, transmit or store sensitive information, an additional review may be conducted in our sandbox as well as your production environment.
The App Review process includes a review of:
