Selenium remote WebDriver infrastructure for Synthetic User Monitoring with SAP Cloud ALM


How to configure CALM ist well explaint from Xavier DUPEYRAT  in his Article Synthetic User Monitoring for S/4 HANA with SAP Cloud ALM

But, what is “the Selenium remote WebDriver infrastructure”? How to configure it? Is it version 3 or 4?

Because Selenium ist not a SAP Product, but you need it to configure synthetic User Monitoring, you need to know how to configure!


Here are my findings (for the moment)

Which version should I use?

Only Verision 3 is working (tried with verision 4, but I always have a Error like “”message”: “Unable to find handler for (GET) \u002fwd\u002fhub”.

Which operating system should I use?

Use Ubuntu Linux – because Docker Desktop for Windows doesn’t run stable!

how should I start it?

Use Containers:

  1. download image with “docker pull selenium/standalone-chrome-debug:3.141.59-20210607”
  2. start image with “docker run -d -p 4444:4444 –shm-size=”2g” selenium/standalone-chrome-debug:3.141.59-20210607″

That’s it, easy – go on configure the Runner in CALM ! 🙂


May you have a wonderful journey with SAP Cloud ALM. Thanks for reading. I would be happy getting some Feedback. Let’s work together!

      Hi Christopher,

      would you please give more insight where you run the docker image? How did you make it reachable from Cloud ALM? How did you secured the access?

      Maybe you add also a link to Synthetic User Monitoring - Setup & Configuration to give more context.

      Best Regards
