Sana Add-on Installation (SAINT)

When SAP system landscape is ready, the Sana add-on can be loaded and installed using the SAP Add-on Installation Tool (SAINT).

Prepare for installation

Sana Commerce installation includes the ABAP object oriented methods developed under our own SANAECOM namespace as well as configuration of the admin / user tables that will enable you to configure and map the relevant data from your SAP system to the Sana web store. You must also backup your SAP system so that it can be recovered to an original state if needed. It is required to do the backup before running installation tasks on SAINT.


  • You need the required authorizations for Transaction SAINT (client:000).
  • The Change and Transport System (CTS) should be correctly set up.
  • There should be enough free space in the transport directory (UNIX:/usr/sap/trans).
  • You should use the latest version of SAINT.

You should import the installation packages only when system load is low since all the application servers should be shut down during the import process, except for the central application server. No other users should be logged on; otherwise this may cause problems, for example, terminated transactions, synchronization problems.

Install the Sana add-on

Step 1: Place the .SAR file (Sana add-on) on the local SAP environment in order to be able to load it into SAINT.

Step 2: Log in with your Basis client: 000.

Step 3: Open the transaction: SAINT.

In the top menu click: Installation Package > Load packages > From Front End > Select. Select the .SAR file stored on the local environment. You will see the SAP GUI Security message asking you to grant access to this file. Click Allow.

Step 4: Click Decompress in the Content of the compressed file window where you will see the 'Sana [version].SAR' file.

Afterwards, you should select the line with the SANAECOM add-on package and click Continue, and then click Continue again under the Support Package Selection tab.

Proceed to the Installation queue window by clicking Continue. You will get a notification screen asking: "Do you want to add Modification Adjustment Transports to the queue?" where you can click No (if none are applicable in your installation scenario).

After that, there will be a notification message informing you that the SANAECOM add-on is being installed. You can proceed by clicking the checkbox and wait till import request queue is finished. Click Finish to complete installation.

As a final step, you will be asked to run the SPDD check in order to validate whether there are no objects in your system that will be modified / overwritten based on the current add-on installation. When it is checked, you can confirm adjustments and proceed.

The result of the installation procedure should be presented in the notification message informing you that: "The Add-of Sana [version] was installed successfully".
