Justin Valley outlines the steps required to log in to the SAP GUI.
- [Instructor] We're now going to logon to the SAP GUI, which stands for graphical user interface. To logon, you need the SAP software installed correctly, and an internet connection. Oftentimes, you'll need to be on your company's network to establish a connection with the system you want to access. This could mean you need to logon to your company's VPN if you're working remotely. When installed properly, there will be an icon on your desktop called SAP Logon. Double-clicking on the SAP Logon will open the SAP Logon Pad. When your SAP system is installed properly and a connection has been created, you'll see the appropriate server in your connections list.
My connection is HS4 - Commercial SAP S/4 HANA. I click on it and click Log On. The first field we'll want to look at is Client. Clients are a way to separate data. For example, many organizations will have a testing client to test different functionality and a production client, where all the real-world operations are being done. In a way, it's just the number of the database you're accessing. In this case, my client is 130, so I'll click in that field and enter 130.
Next is the User field. This is just the username. In this case, my username is student001. Next is the Password. I'll enter my password here. And once all three fields are filled out, we can press Enter. This brings us to the SAP Easy Access screen, where all transactions begin.
