Windows-based SAP support

You can use the Windows-based SAP testing support provided with the UFT One SAP Solutions Add-in to test user-interface objects in SAP GUI for Windows user-interface objects.

General Information

Add-in Type

When testing SAP GUI for Windows applications, much of the functionality is the same as other Windows-based add-ins.

Supported Environments

For details on supported Windows-based SAP environments, see the SAP Solutions Add-in section of the UFT One Support Matrix.

Important Information
  • When recording on SAP GUI for Windows applications, the steps are added to the test only when you submit the form or switch to another form. If you manually stop a recording session before submitting or switching away from the form, no steps are recorded.

  • The SAP NWBC Desktop Add-in is installed with the SAP Solutions Add-in. However, in order for full support for NWBC Desktop applications, you must do the following:

    • Install both the SAP Solutions Add-in and the WPF Add-in.

    • When opening UFT One, in the Add-in Manager, select the SAP NWBC Desktop Add-in under the SAP Add-in and the WPF Add-in.

Test Object Methods and Properties

The SAP Solutions Add-in provides test objects, methods, and properties that can be used when testing objects in SAP GUI for Windows applications. For details, see the SAP GUI for Windows section of the UFT One Object Model Reference for GUI Testing.
