[CAP] Check if User exists in SuccessFactors

To check if a record exists, you can simply use the HEAD query.

“HEAD is almost identical to GET, but without the response body.” (https://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_httpmethods.asp)

Unfortunately, there is no shortcut in CAP for a HEAD query, so simply use send with method HEAD.

    sfsfSrv = await cds.connect.to('sfsf')

    try {
        await sfsfSrv.send('HEAD', `/User('${userId}')`)
        return true  // status 200
    } catch (err) {
        return false // status 404
    }

[CAP] Invoke custom handlers when querying local entity

const cds = require('@sap/cds');

module.exports = async srv => {

     const { Objects } = srv.entities // entities from myService.cds
   
     srv.on("myAction", async req => {
        const query = SELECT.one.from(Objects).where({ id: req.data.myId })
        const srv = await cds.connect.to('myService')
        const data = await srv.run(query)
        console.log(data) 
        return data
    })

    srv.on("READ", Objects, async req => {
        console.log("Objects called")
        // Select data from db or forward query to external system
        // ...
        // return data
    })

}

[CAP] Query teamMembersSize from SuccessFactors

const sfsfSrv = await cds.connect.to('sfsf')

// Option 1: Query Notation
const response = await sfsfSrv.run(SELECT`teamMembersSize`.from`User`.where`userId = ${req.user.id}`)
console.log("option 1: " + response[0].teamMembersSize)

// Option 2: HTTP method-style
const response2 =  await sfsfSrv.get(`/User('${req.user.id}')/teamMembersSize/$value`)
console.log("option 2: " + response2)
