Important!

  • Keep the original system for 3rd party packages
  • Panaya uses standard SAP Workbench Change Requests (CRs). For accurate results, verify that the CR includes all the required information to be considered as a valid transport (e.g., routing information).
  • You cannot submit an automatic fix for objects with Syntax errors. Your sync request will be declined to protect the existing code.
  • For every Object, a target system must be allocated. Panaya requires this information to be able to determine where to submit the CR.
  • To submit Intelligent Code Remediation (ICR) fixes to your SAP development or sandbox system, all custom objects Original System should point to the system where the fixes are submitted.

Caution
Panaya RDx synchronizer requires that a transaction with the exact hard coded name ZPANAYA_ACC_SYNC be present in the system.
Be sure to create such a transaction and keep the name unchanged.

How to Uninstall?
To remove the Intelligent Code Remediation Synchronizer, delete the ABAP program ZPANAYA_ACC_SYNC.

Step 3 - Set Server Parameters

  • Enable GUI Scripting
    The Intelligent Code Remediation synchronizer requires SAP GUI scripting to be enabled.
    Please set the system profile parameters as shown below - 

    - sapgui/user_scripting = TRUE
    - sapgui/user_scripting_disable_recording = FALSE
    - sapgui/user_scripting_set_readonly = FALSE

More detailed information can be found here -

Step 4 - Enable Authorizations for Users

Each user running the Panaya Synchronizer must have a set of authorizations within the SAP system as listed below:

  1. Object S_TCODE
    a. Value ZPANAYA_ACC_SYNC
     

  2. Object S_GUI (Authorization for GUI activities)
    a. ACTVT (Activity) – 61 (Export)
    Note - This authorization is required only in versions 4.7 and higher

Step 5 – Create a Transport

  1. Create a Workbench transport request for each target system where changes are required. All transports should be created before the sync run begins.
  2. In the created transport, create tasks for each user who will be required to submit changes.
  3. The transport(s) must have this exact description - 
    “PANAYA Automatic Code Corrections”

Good to Know!
If you only plan to apply changes to a single target system, one transport request is sufficient. 

 

 

Client Side Installation

 

Step 1 - Enable GUI Scripting & Deny Pop-Up Notifications

Panaya sync requires SAP GUI scripting to be enabled as well as disabling SAP pop-up notifications for accelerated testing.
The process described here must be repeated for every client machine using the Synchronizer.

Step 2 - Set SAP Network Settings to High-Speed Connection

To assure completeness and accuracy of data recorded please make sure the Network Settings is set to High Speed Connection for every client machine using the Synchronizer.
Follow the instructions described here.

 

Step 3 - Install .NET Framework
.NET Framework version 4.6.2 or above must be present on the local machine of each user running the Intelligent Code Remediation Synchronizer.
We recommend using .NET Framework version 4.0. Most computers already have .NET Framework, so normally no installation is needed.
If you experience issues while installing the Synchronizer, please install the .NET Framework from Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.

Step 4 - Security Settings Configuration
Please ensure that proxy settings are not preventing the Synchronizer from working properly. 

If you have an anti-virus, VPN, Remote Machine or Virtual Machine, you might need to add Panaya to the safe domains list. Sites on this list do not require proxy or any other security permission.

Please add *.Panaya.com to your white-list, or to your exceptions lists (e.g. proxy, anti-virus etc.)

Alternatively, add the following URL's to your white-list:
