New Pricing for SAP Intelligent RPA

SAP introduces a new metric and pricing for SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation effective January 25, 2021. SAP will change the metric from Transactions to Concurrent Sessions:

Concurrent Sessions (CS) are the aggregated number of sessions accessing the cloud service at any one time. ​

A session refers to the time between logon and logoff or time out where a unique user, application, bot, or platform accesses the cloud service either directly, or indirectly via a custom application.​

Concurrent Sessions count the maximum number of bots (aka as scripts, automations etc.) which are executed simultaneously. Attended and unattended concurrent sessions are counted separately.

Service Plan for Attended Bots

Service Plan for Unattended Bots

Access to Cloud Studio and Control Room is included. The developer license includes now also the execution of the bot as an execution of a bot in test mode will not count as a concurrent session.


SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation is available as subscription and via the Cloud Platform Enterprise Agreement (CPEA).
