In order to enable Studio to interact with SAP WinGUI, you need to perform the following configurations steps on the server side and the client side. This enables the default and recommended element detection framework SAP for interactive selection.
In relation to any security concerns, the SAP server sees no difference between SAP WinGUI communication generated by a script and the one generated by a user. The script has the same rights to run SAP transactions and enter data, just like a user would.
