Use Case Selection:
Master data stewards / owners to create/change several master data entries and attributes, often use MDG screens. This is a very tedious, repetitive manual task, which takes lot of time for a user to create this data in the system. SAP Intelligent RPA is a useful tool to automate the tasks where BOT can take care of repetitive actions like open, enter and submit, just to fill the master data.
The purpose of this blog post is to show you how to create Master Data in SAP MDG (Master Data Governance) with SAP IRPA.
