Remove the (Buyer) role from a User in the HR system.
The ERP Connector platform should trigger an API call to Coupa using GET API to query the User’s
<id>that you need to update (based on “login”, for example, but any queryable field/tag can be used depending on business scenario).
The ERP Connector platform should trigger a Coupa PUT API to update the status for the User in Coupa using the User's
Ensure that you get a 200 API response and it is logged in your ERP Connector platform logging engine. If you get a different API response (for example, 400) error, the API error (returned on API response
<errors><error>tag(s)) must be logged in the ERP Connector platform logging engine and a notification must be sent to the relevant person to investigate.
Validate that the User in Coupa has the (Buyer) role removed.
Sample API Calls
In this example, a User is queried based on the User's “login” name (
USER_TEST); then the API response Coupa user
<id> is used to update the Coupa User's status to have the (Buyer) role removed.
The return payload has the Coupa user
277) and all the roles the User already has.
Remove a role
Removing a role is a two-step process where you first remove all the roles from the user and then put back the desired roles
1. PUT the following payload to the desired user (for example
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <user> <roles> </roles> </user>
2. PUT the role(s) you want to add back to the user with a payload like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <user> <roles> <role> <name>role name</name> </role> </roles> </user>
See Add a Role to a User for more info.
See Add a Role to a User, but in the CSV file, list the role(s) that the User should have.
Remove all roles from a User by adding
--NULL-- to the
User Role Names field.
The CSV flat file upload is monitored in Coupa at
https://<instance>/data_sources. Coupa sends a notification to Coupa Admin on an upload failure, and Coupa Admin needs to investigate further.
