This post is part of the SAP Build Community Challenge (April 2023)
We're mixing it up for this week’s challenge, moving to SAP Build Process Automation and automation bots – which are a bit tricky but really cool!
It feels great to set up your bot, step by step, add all the activities and commands and configurations, and then click a button to have your bot do all your work. I love watching my automation open Excel, read data, open Outlook, create and send emails, open a web app, interact with it ... and a million other tasks.
We will be using the RPA Challenge web site for the community challenge.
Essentially, you will have to do 3 things:
The trick is that the fields on the web page move each time you click Submit, so you have to know how to find the right fields on the page (hint: based on CSS class).
If you’re new to SAP Build Process Automation, you should do the following tutorials:
Together, they will give you the knowledge to do the challenge.
You must have an SAP BTP account with SAP Build Process Automation. Luckily, it is available for free on the trial version of SAP BTP, or you can use your own account with the free-tier service plan. Setup is described in the SAP Process Automation now available in your Trial Account blog post.
You will also have to install the desktop agent, which automatically installs the Chrome extension. This is described in Install SAP Intelligent RPA On-Premise Components tutorial.
Once you are set up, do the following:
Ideally, you should get a score of 100%, with a time of under 30 seconds. But even if you don't, show us what you were able to do.
It is a little challenging, especially for newbies to SAP Build Process Automation, but it is doable in a couple of hours, and worth it.
Good luck (and join this SAP Builders group! 😺
