Challenge Submission – SAP Intelligent RPA: Master Data Creation using SAP MDG

This is a submission for the SAP Intelligent RPA Tutorial Challenge.

Use Case Selection:

Master data stewards / owners to create/change several master data entries and attributes, often use MDG screens. This is a very tedious, repetitive manual task, which takes lot of time for a user to create this data in the system. SAP Intelligent RPA is a useful tool to automate the tasks where BOT can take care of repetitive actions like open, enter and submit, just to fill the master data.

The purpose of this blog post is to show you how to create Master Data in SAP MDG (Master Data Governance) with SAP IRPA.

  1. Desktop studio and desktop agent installed and configured Link
  2. SAP MDG screen and its corresponding URL to connect to record.
  1. Base knowledge of SAP iRPA (creating a project/workflow, adding applications/pages,…) – Link

IRPA Flow

  1. Start the MDG Application.
  2. Open MDG Master Data Create Screen
  3. Extract data, Check and Submit the Change Request.
