This article shows how to use the integration type Transaction in yunIO.
The following example application uses transactions to create new equipment in SAP. For more information on creating equipment, see SAP Help: Creating a Piece of Equipment.

Note: The transaction feature only works with SAP dialog users.

Prerequisites #

  1. Log off the SAP GUI.
    When running transactions, a connection to your SAP system is established using the credentials in your connection settings. It is not possible to run multiple instances of SAP with the same user in parallel with yunIO.
  2. Create a new Transaction service in yunIO. Make sure that the SAP user assigned to your service has enough access rights to create new equipment.
    For more information on creating a service, see Creating a Service.

Note: The integration type Transaction is currently marked as “experimental” and is not fully funcional. Future versions will work with any SAP transaction code.

Tip: The transaction feature of yunIO offers the same functionalities as the SAP GUI. Therefore knowing how to navigate the SAP GUI makes it easier to use the transaction feature.
