Compression utility Definition is required for automatic compression and uploading your custom code to Panaya and for the server-side installation of the Panaya Recorder & Player. Defining the compression utility requires the compression of the XML file into a Zip archive using standard archiving software like Gzip. You can download Gzip hereIf you prefer using WinRAR, follow WinRAR definitions in the instructions below. 

Note

RAR file type is not supported

gzip Installation

SAP servers running UNIX or Linux have a built-in gzip facility.
The activities described below are necessary for SAP servers running Windows.

  1. Click here to download gzip
  2. Locate the gzip.exe file installed in the previous step and copy it to the Windows directory.
    Alternatively, adding the gzip directory to the system path is possible.


Defining an Operating System Command

  1. Start transaction SM49
  2. Select
  3. Under Command, for Command name, type the command name as follows - 
    • For automatic compression and extraction of custom code - ZZ_COMPRESS_ETL
    • For the server-side installation of the Panaya Recorder & Player - ZZ_COMPRESS
    • For SCMON extraction capabilities - ZZ_ARCHIVE_ETL
  4. Under Definition, for operating system command -
    For gzip type: gzip
    For WinRAR type: C:\Program Files (x86)\WinRAR\winrar)
    For tar type: tar
