      Dear Veera Manikandan Sudalaimuthu,

      as is see this is an classic SAP GUI solution.

      What is the solution from SAP for your customers in a S4/HANA puplic or private cloud, where the UI, accoring to SAP, is (puplic cloud) or shoulf pe (private) NOT SAP GUI, but Fiori ?

      This questions rises, because SAP want to move the customers in the cloud, and classic SAP GUIs are not an option for the future.

      Thanks for your responce
