5. How to Automate SAP if it is available in Citrix or Cloud Server?

Answer: In case if Automation Anywhere Client (version 11x) is accessible from outside Citrix or Cloud server and SAP is installed in Citrix Server. In that case, we won’t be able to use most of the commands or features like Metabot.

But still, it can be automated using Keystores, OCR, and Image Recogniation. Using these options we may get low accuracy as result due to OCR and Image Recogniation command limitations. We can use Keystrokes to pass the value from AA Client to SAP, OCR command can help on reading information SAP and Image Recognition command can help on performing other actions like performing Click or double click.
