How to use input parameter or values defined in environment parameters in SAP Process Automation

Hi SAP RPA experts,

I wonder is there a way to use values from input parameters or environment parameters in "Recognition Criteria"? From its editor dialog, I can't see there is a way to achieve this. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Regards,

Nick

Good day nick.yang1

I don't think this is possible. But why not add the dynamics into your automation itself?

Hi Gunter,

Thanks for your suggestion. The target system that I am working on is a S/4HANA cloud system.

When you open the system, it will re-direct you to its logon page if not authenticated yet (SAML authentication).

This is the approach mentioned in page 497 in below SAP online help.

https://help.sap.com/doc/464781c43f264b8fb956c6e1594cd723/Cloud/en-US/29e8302075ea4c75a5952d44625ce5...

And this tutorial step 2 to 4.

The alternative approach that I can think of is to add all the URLs from two systems (dev and prod) to "Recognition Criteria". Not very nice but should work.

Regards,

Nick

Hi Nick,

I see. I suppose you did a good analysis already. When working with S/4HANA Cloud: For what you want to do is there an API? Because if it is, this will be likely the most stable setup you can achieve. E.g. check this blog https://blogs.sap.com/2022/07/20/supplier-invoice-posting-with-sap-process-automation/

One more idea: Would it be an approach to look for a screen element rather than the URL? Like "if this text/button/field with that ID or name shows up, then continue." See example below:

Maybe I still didn't get it why the URL is the only way to identify.
