SAP Intelligent RPA 2.0 – Download excel file from SAP Analytics Cloud to desktop

Hello,

In this blog post I would like to showcase a scenario that uses iRPA to automate the process of downloading an excel from an SAP Analytics Cloud story to the user’s desktop. The screenshots and recording are all my own. I am using Cloud SAP trial account for the purposes of this exercise.

I have divided this scenario into two automations –

Part 1: Login to SAP Analytics Cloud application

Part 2: Download a file which is stored at the location “My files / Public / IRPA Test / Test IRPA file” in the SAP Analytics Cloud application

Here are the pre-requisites –

  1. An SAC story already is available in your SAC tenant.
  2. SAP IRPA installation and set up of the Desktop Agent should be completed.

Part 1: Login to SAP Analytics Cloud 

Create an application within iRPA.

Capture%20the%20login%20page%20as%20an%20application%20and%20declare%20elements%20%28username%2C%20password%20and%20login%29

Capture the login page as an application and declare elements (username, password and login)

 

Create automation for Login

Start%20ScreenSet%20element%20username%2C%20password%20and%20click%20on%20Login

Set element username, password and click on Login

Start Screen

Part 2: – Download a file which is stored at the location “My files / Public / IRPA Test / Test IRPA file” 

 

Part 2.1 Create application to capture all the pages and declare the required elements

 

Capture the page and declare the element “Public Folder”

Capture%20SAC%20page%20and%20declare%20elements%20Public%20Folder

Capture the  page and declare the element “IRPATest”

 

Capture the application and declare the element “Test_RPA”

Capture%20the%20application%20and%20declare%20the%20element

 

Since the next pages are different views of the same page, we will capture multiple screen under one application and declare the required elements

 

capture%20multiple%20screen%20in%20one%20application

capture multiple screen in one application

Capture 1 – The application is created to click on the unique element in the page so that the 3 dots appear, this will be declared as an element in capture 2

Capture 2 –  define the three dots as an element “More”

Capture%202%3A%20define%20the%20three%20dots%20as%20an%20element%20More

 

Capture 3 – Declare element as “export”

Capture%203%20Declare%20element%20as%20export

Capture 4 – Declare the element “ok” to download the file

Part 2.2 Create automation

For the SAP Analytics Cloud login, refer to the automation defined in Part 1
