Step 3: Configure Scripting Settings

In the same window, click on the ‘Scripting’ button. This will open a new window where you can configure additional scripting settings.

  • Tips:
    • If you are using UiPath Studio on a different machine than your SAP application, make sure to check the box next to ‘Enable external automation support’.
    • You can also choose whether to allow access for single or multiple sessions.
  • Security:
    • If you are concerned about security, you can enable ‘Notify when a script attaches to SAP GUI’ or ‘Notify when a script opens a connection to SAP GUI’. This way, you will be prompted whenever an external script attempts to interact with SAP.
