HI @Norrapat_Thongnop

I am doing SAP automation for more than 10 years and hearing such customer worries almost on daily basis. I fully understand your worries, but the good news is they this topic can be easily clarified.

So, lets consider some aspects:

  1. Enabling SAP WinGUI API scripting allows you to create reliable automations for the SAP WinGUI.
    It means you will get an SAP automation which is running today, tomorrow, in one week and not breaking every time because of changing elements position, elements views and, and, and…

  2. In relation to any security concerns, the SAP server sees no difference between SAP WinGUI communication generated by a script and the one generated by a user. The script has the same rights to run SAP transactions and enter data, just like a user would

  3. The SAP Scripting security guide from SAP explain the whole concept
    https://help.sap.com/doc/97d2d0bc2ed248a4a85a0bec608704f8/760.01/en-US/sap_gui_scripting_sec_guide.pdf

  4. SAP API Scripting can be allowed for the whole SAP instance or even for a single user.

  5. You are not alone, there are thousands of companies using SAP Scripting in their systems :slight_smile:


UiPath Computer Vision could be used in the case, when the SAP scripting is not allowed. See more here: https://www.uipath.com/product/platform/ai-computer-vision-for-rpa

Hope this help you
