We will learn step by step tutorial for “UiPath SAP Automation”.Uipath sap activities designed for automating SAP system, by encapsulating script actions into UiPath activities through DLL interface provided by SAP. (Requires script to be enabled in SAP)
SAP enterprise software is very demanded in the current market. It is mainly used across various industries for managing business operations and customer relations. The flow of data that SAP handles require multiple repetitive tasks to be conducted, which can get quite tedious and time-consuming.
We automate those SAP task which requires reading and manipulating data in uipath. Some common use cases include starting or closing a case, filling a form on-screen, comparing data fields using screen scraping, data mining, migrating data between SAP and other applications, updating the status field, and many more.
Uipath SAP automation work can be performed with the help of recording activities, manually inserting Click Text actions, sending keyboard shortcuts, and extracting text, as well as focusing on SAP-specific approaches.
SAP Automation Project Example :
We will learn how to login to SAP using UiPath studio.
Step1: Refer to the below screen. The SAPLoginMain.xaml invokes a workflow for closing any running SAP instances, using a Do While activity that checks for any open SAP windows and attempts to close them three times, it uses If activity. The If also contains a Throw activity for generating an exception if the workflow is unable to close the SAP windows.
Step2: Refer to below screen. If all SAP windows are closed, the SAPLoginMain.xaml comes into play. The Try Catch activity invokes the SAPLoginDoLogin.xaml workflow, which logs into SAP using the credentials and parameters passed as arguments
Step3: Refer to below screen.The UiPath Attach Window activity inside the SAPLoginDoLogin.xaml workflow inserts arguments like client and language, which are optional, together with the username and password. Once you enter the credentials, the Send Hotkey activity presses Enter so that the SAPLoginMain.xaml can check for a welcome message and bypass it with a Click activity.
Step4: Refer to below screen. UiPath workflow then checks if the user is logged in, and then verifies if the copyright popup appears so that it may bypass it using a Click activity. The last sequence in the workflow uses an Element Exists activity to check if the SAP main screen exists, and an If activity to log a message if the login was successful or throw an exception if it failed.
