About SAP WinGUI

SAP WinGUI is the most commonly used interface for accessing SAP functionality in SAP applications, such as SAP ERP, SAP ECC, SAP S/4 HANA, and the family of SAP Business Suite applications, such as SAP BI/BW, SAP CRM, SAP SCM, SAP PLM, and others.

Enabling SAP WinGUI API scripting allows you to create reliable automations for the SAP WinGUI. Studio and Robots require SAP WinGUI scripting to be enabled on the local machine as well as on the server side. Before you can create your first automation projects for SAP, you need to go over the configuration steps.

UI elements in SAP are known as controls, and you might need a particular approach or activity to detect and use them. Find out more about supported SAP elements.

SAP WinGUI Additional Information
