Connecting to SAP

This step is only required when automating in SAP.

If you don't want to connect to SAP, you can directly jump to Creating Application Key for Celonis Agent

Responsibility: SAP basis and server/ infrastructure administrator

In order to be able to call BAPIs/RFC calls directly in an SAP ECC or S4 / Hana system, the environment variable must be set up on the server on which the Celonis Agent will be running.

The SAP basis team will usually provide the required SAP packages. The server/ infrastructure administrator has to update and save the files in the Agent package.

Administrator permissions will be necessary in order to perform the following steps on your system.

Install SAP NW RFC SDK
For Windows and Linux

Steps:

  • Install the SAP NW RFC SDK 7.5 - available for download via SAP. This will require an SAP ID account, therefore it might be necessary to involve a stakeholder of your SAP Basis Team to download the SDK.

Note

Please make sure to select the correct operational system e.g. Windows.

  • Open the downloaded SAP NW RFC SDK package and navigate to the nwrfcsdkfolder.

  • Copy all folders inside nwrfcsdk into the sap-lib folder of your Celonis Agent package.

Note

Please note that for an agent running as a windows service, the sap-lib/lib folder needs to be added to the Path system environmental variable.

Additional notes for Linux

If you are using a glibc version lower 2.17, you might run into a connection error when trying to set up the Agent. In this case, please contact the Service Desk for support.
