The UiPath Accelerators for SAP ECC for Basis Administration offer a wide variety of pre-built activities for typical automations that UiPath customers use on top of SAP ECC to automate their Basis Administration processes.
Predefined workflows can be used for both SAP Robotic Process Automation and as an SAP Test Case, thus creating synergies in your automation journey.
They are built for both SAP WinGUI automation as well as native integration via SAP BAPI to ensure that automations are robust, stable and performant.
Use them out of the box to accelerate implementation time of your SAP automation projects.
Sample use case: Create, change, and unlock users
As part of their migration project from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA, a large enterprise UiPath customer had to create and update hundreds of SAP users. User creation was required when new employees joined the project, and also for testing purposes, to simulate users with different roles. All these activities were historically performed manually and required many repetitive steps. They were also prone to error. The UiPath solution deploys a robot that reads the requested changes from an Excel file and then performs all corresponding actions in SAP S/4HANA. The business user can focus on relevant project activities and leave the mundane tasks to the robot. The SAP BAPI activities from the accelerators simplified user administration and significantly improved productivity.

The transaction codes listed for BAPI are provided as a guidance and do not guarantee the exact same functionality as the listed WinGUI transaction. SAP BAPI in some cases can have more complex structures than transaction code, which includes large number of tables parameters.
The package was formerly known as SRC Components for SAP ECC, which was built and delivered by UiPath Japan and it is owned and maintained by the team.
