The Store for Process Automation Content

The figure shows the store of SAP Build Process Automation

The Store is a central component within SAP Build Process Automation that offers prebuilt content created and curated by SAP that can be used free of charge. This content could contain prebuilt, directly usable packages, including templated automations, workflows, processes, process visibility dashboards, forms, and actions.

Activate Process Automation Content

Business Scenario

A department within your company regularly creates Microsoft Excel documents that contain data about goods and materials that are required by the department. In order to trigger the purchasing process, purchase requisitions need to be created within the company’s SAP S/4HANA system. As it is a tedious task to go through the Excel list line by line and to create purchase requisitions for each required product manually, you as a (citizen) business process developer are given the task to implement an automation that creates the required purchase requisitions from the list automatically. The finished automation will free up your colleague’s valuable time. Before you start to create the automation from scratch, you browse through the SAP Build Process Automation Store. Fortunately, an appropriate Task Automation content is already available as a template in the Store. It makes your life easier as you only need to activate the content and adjust it in case of more specific requirements.

  1. Browse for required Task Automation content in the SAP Build Process Automation Store.
