After completing the preparation and installation activities on the Central system, the bots can now be configured.
The following sections will take you through the bot setup
There is also a section for trouble shooting should you still have issues.
Note the Bot machine requirements and architecture below.
Remote Desktop/Virtual Machine Requirements for the Bot
|64-bit Windows System (Windows 10, Server 2016, Server 2019)
|Windows administrative access for setup
|Access to the Central and Target systems (Latency should be less than 8ms)
|SAP GUI 7.60 patch 4 required (lower levels have memory leaks that will impact performance)
|As supplied by BTI, Save the executable in a directory on a local drive. (e.g. C:\BTI_BOT\)
|Windows .Net (usually installed with Windows 10, Server 2016/19 ), MS Office, Web Browser, PDF Viewer
|2+ GHz dual core
|50 GB free space
|Expected around 50 to 100 active user sessions
|Automatic windows updates should be disabled on bot machines as this can result in the machines being updated while bots are running which will cause significant issues for a playback.
|Must have network connectivity to Central and Target systems
The Testimony bot architecture is shown in the diagram below. You can have many physical or virtual desktop machines each running one bot, with each bot launching multiple SAP user sessions. Each bot can handle around 90 concurrent SAP user sessions. Note you will also require one worker (background) job to run each bot.
