Rapidly create and deploy powerful .NET applications that integrate with SAP Concur data including Attendees, Entries, Lists, Items, and more!

Are you in search of a quick and easy way to access SAP Concur data from PowerShell? This article demonstrates how to utilize the SAP Concur Cmdlets and the CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP Concur for tasks like connecting to SAP Concur data, automating operations, downloading data, and more.

The CData Cmdlets for SAP Concur are standard PowerShell cmdlets that make it easy to accomplish data cleansing, normalization, backup, and other integration tasks by enabling real-time and bidirectional access to SAP Concur.

PowerShell Cmdlets or ADO.NET Driver?

The Cmdlets are not only a PowerShell interface to SAP Concur, but also an SQL interface; this tutorial shows how to use both to create, retrieve, update, and delete SAP Concur data. We also show examples of the ADO.NET equivalent, which is possible with the CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP Concur. To access SAP Concur data from other .NET applications, like LINQPad, use the CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP Concur.

Once you have acquired the necessary connection properties, accessing SAP Concur data in PowerShell can be enabled in three steps.

SAP Concur uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. You will need to obtain the OAuthClientId and OAuthClientSecret by registering an app with SAP Concur. See the Getting Started section of the help documentation for an authentication guide.


  1. Install the module:

    Install-Module SAPConcurCmdlets
  2. Connect:

    $sapconcur = Connect-SAPConcur -OAuthClientId "$OAuthClientId" -OAuthClientSecret "$OAuthClientSecret"
  3. Search for and retrieve data:

    $id = "1668776136772254" $departments = Select-SAPConcur -Connection $sapconcur -Table "Departments" -Where "Id = `'$Id`'" $departments

    You can also use the Invoke-SAPConcur cmdlet to execute SQL commands:

    $departments = Invoke-SAPConcur -Connection $sapconcur -Query 'SELECT * FROM Departments WHERE Id = @Id' -Params @{'@Id'='1668776136772254'}


  1. Load the provider's assembly:

    [Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFile("C:\Program Files\CData\CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP Concur\lib\System.Data.CData.SAPConcur.dll")
  2. Connect to SAP Concur:

    $conn= New-Object System.Data.CData.SAPConcur.SAPConcurConnection("OAuthClientId=MyOAuthClientId;OAuthClientSecret=MyOAuthClientSecret;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH") $conn.Open()
  3. Instantiate the SAPConcurDataAdapter, execute an SQL query, and output the results:

    $sql="SELECT Id, OfficeId from Departments" $da= New-Object System.Data.CData.SAPConcur.SAPConcurDataAdapter($sql, $conn) $dt= New-Object System.Data.DataTable $da.Fill($dt) $dt.Rows | foreach { Write-Host $ $_.officeid }

Update SAP Concur Data


Update-SAPConcur -Connection $SAPConcur -Columns @('Id','OfficeId') -Values @('MyId', 'MyOfficeId') -Table Departments -Id "MyId"


$cmd = New-Object System.Data.CData.SAPConcur.SAPConcurCommand("UPDATE Departments SET Id='1668776136772254' WHERE Id = @myId", $conn) $cmd.Parameters.Add(new System.Data.CData.SAPConcur.SAPConcurParameter("@myId","10456255-0015501366")) $cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

Insert SAP Concur Data


Add-SAPConcur -Connection $SAPConcur -Table Departments -Columns @("Id", "OfficeId") -Values @("MyId", "MyOfficeId")


$cmd = New-Object System.Data.CData.SAPConcur.SAPConcurCommand("INSERT INTO Departments (Id) VALUES (@myId)", $conn) $cmd.Parameters.Add(new System.Data.CData.SAPConcur.SAPConcurParameter("@myId","1668776136772254")) $cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

Delete SAP Concur Data


Remove-SAPConcur -Connection $SAPConcur -Table "Departments" -Id "MyId"


$cmd = New-Object System.Data.CData.SAPConcur.SAPConcurCommand("DELETE FROM Departments WHERE Id=@myId", $conn) $cmd.Parameters.Add(new System.Data.CData.SAPConcur.SAPConcurParameter("@myId","001d000000YBRseAAH")) $cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
