The SAP ODM API at CDQ serves as a pivotal bridge in the landscape of APIs provided by CDQ, specifically designed to enhance the integration experience with SAP services adhering to SAP ODM standards. Unlike other APIs within CDQ that may offer additional content perspectives, the primary purpose of the SAP ODM API lies in its ability to seamlessly deliver content already available through other APIs in a format that is comprehensible to SAP services operating under SAP ODM compliance.
To elucidate this concept further, consider the following example: The endpoint URL https://api.cdq.com/sap-odm/v2/referencedata/rest/v3/businesspartners/lookup corresponds to the underlying endpoint referencedata/rest/v3/businesspartners/lookup. In essence, the SAP ODM API operates as a transformation "proxy" for this underlying API. It does not inject additional business content but serves as an intermediary layer, ensuring that the data exchanged aligns with the SAP ODM standard.
