While automating with SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation, the initial steps involve recording various pages of the application to be automated. In this process, especially when a user wishes to capture SAP S/4HANA Applications, there would be situations wherein the automation scenario would involve WEBGUI apps too.
In this blog, I wish to throw more light on the steps involved in recording WEBGUI applications. The elements to be captured in a WEBGUI page reside inside iframes. By simply choosing the application page, in the ‘Capture Page’ pop up, often the required elements are not captured.
The following steps would be helpful in automating WEBGUI apps.
Step 1: Open the WEBGUI application in your preferred browser.
Step 2: Choose ‘Capture a New Page’
Step 3: In the pop up, click on the refresh button to view active pages.
Step 4: Click on the chevron to expand the list.
Step 5: Choose the page from the expanded list, which would contain the contents of the iframe. In turn, this would capture the DOM elements required to be automated. Finally, click on ‘Save and Capture’.
