1. Define the scope

All SAP company codes with less than 50k entries per company code in a given fiscal year in table BKPF are free of charge. So, let's identify company codes with less than 50k postings per year in your organization first. Simply:

  • login to SAP
  • open transaction SE16 or SE16N
  • Type “BKPF” in the “Table” field
  • select a company code and a fiscal year
  • click "number of entries."

This link will provide you with detailed guidance on how to do this.

3. Identifying suitable hardware

The best thing about company codes with less than 50k postings per year is that you don’t need a large server to test zap Audit. As a starting point, we recommend a Windows notebook with 8GB RAM available and a minimum of 100GB of free SSD hard disk space. That's it.

If you want to analyze a more extensive company code, than please read and follow the steps in our article about hardware requirements here:

4. Identify or apply for a suitable SAP User

Probably one of the most significant advantages of zap Audit is that there’s is no need to update SAP. All you need is an SAP User with RFC read table access. To be more precise, the user profile needs to look like this:

rfc_access_rights

If you’d like more details on how to set up the user, please have a look at the following article:

Also, please make sure you already have these SAP connection parameters to hand (message/application server, system name, system number, client, router string) and have downloaded the SAP JCO file from the SAP Marketplace, which is free of charge.
