How to run SAP script starting from initial logon screen

I’ve been trying to create a workflow where knime will open SAP then open a specific T-code which it would then take a screenshot of. I know that I can record a script from SAP which will lead to the page I want to take a screenshot of, the problem is that I can’t seem to find a Node that can run the SAP Script. Majority of the SAP tools I see just extracts data directly.

  1. Is there any node that I can run SAP Scripts with?
  2. If not, is there any node that is similar to how creating Macro tools in excel functions

I know Macro tools has the capability to open SAP to the page I want so I’m hoping that knime has a node with the same functionality if ever.

Thank you in advance!

Hi @Sharonlau15 and welcome to the forum.

I’m not aware of a node that supports this directly. As you know, SAP is wildly complicated and offers many, many different types of access.

It’s possible this could be done with a short Python script within a KNIME node; maybe someone with more experience with me can jump in to provide a more comprehensive answer.

Hi @ScottF, Thank you for the warm welcome.

I have considered python script but unfortunately I’m not knowledgeable enough to make it work. Is there a node that can run visual basic atleast?

I would go with @ScottF solution.
Have you already checked that article python sap
Alternatively you could run a batch script in KNIME if that helps

I don’t believe so. I suspect in this case Python will be your best bet.
