Connecting to SAP

The Celonis on-prem client needs to establish a connection to the SAP system and be able to make RFC calls. For this purpose, we use an industry-standard library - The SAP Java Connector (SAP JCo), which is maintained and published by SAP. The JCo library should be downloaded and set up separately.

To connect to SAP:

  1. Download the respective package from the SAP Marketplace.


    Only SAP Service User (S User) can download software from SAP portals. Usually, customer's SAP BASIS has this access.

  2. Copy the Library files into the dedicated jco folder in the Celonis SAP Shared folder.

    The Celonis SAP Shared folder is located in the installation directory. The default is .../Program Files/Celonis SAP Components. The downloaded jco folder already contains two files: a Java part “sapjco3.jar”, and an operating system-specific part e.g. sapjco3.[.dll | .so | .sl ]. After downloading the files make sure to copy the two files to the folder "jco". The Celonis Agent is configured to read the library from this directory.


    After setting up the jco, the Windows Service Celonis Agent needs to be restarted for the jco related changes to take effect.
