2.1 Client PC Configuration

Configuring SAP GUI on Client PC

Users need an active connection to their SAP server to run SAP GUI and load the scripts in to debugger. To set the connection, open SAP GUI system properties wizard. The system properties box for SAP 7.10 looks as shown below:



This system properties dialog box contains the following information:


The description specifies information about the server. Typically, this is either the name of the SAP server or the Liquid UI Server that the user will connect to. In our example, the description is Your SAP Server.

Application Server

The application server is the name of the application server the user will connect to. In our example, the application server is named “”.

Instance Number

Instance number specifies the target port that connects to either the SAP application server or the Liquid UI Server. In our example the instance number is “28”.

System ID

The System ID is the SAP client ID to which the Server will be connecting. The System ID can be different depending on your corporate environment. Some examples might be ‘DEV’ for development, ‘QAS’ for regression testing or ‘PRD’ for production. Each of these can have specific data and restrictions associated. For example, development might be prohibited in PRD so as not to risk damaging the production system or data.

SAP Router String

The SAP Router string contains router address if you are connecting to your SAP server using a router. However, you will only enter a SAP Router string if the Liquid UI Server will be used as a SAP Router. Using Liquid UI Server as a SAP Router is explained below. Leave this blank for a standard Liquid UI Server connection.
