Error Message: Scripting is disabled on server
Symptoms: When doing a GUI Script recording or upload, you get the message "Scripting is disabled on server".
Cause: This error indicates that GUI Scripting is disabled on the SAP server that you are connected to.
Resolution: SAP GUI scripting can be activated by setting the profile parameter sapgui/user_scripting to TRUE.* You can activate it dynamically via RZ11 if your system features a 6.20 kernel or above. For systems with 4.6D kernel, you need patch 972.
*Note: This value is only set temporarily and will revert after the SAP instance is re-started. To set it permanently they will need to add the parameter value into the instance profile via RZ10 and then re-start the SAP instance.
To enable scripting on the server, follow the steps below:
- Run transaction RZ11.
- Enter sapgui/user_scripting and click Display.
- Click Change value.
- Enter TRUE (uppercase)* in New value and click Save.
