Enhancements

ABAP Agent

Data collectors for SAPGUI transactions

Added support for SAP GUI data collectors. Now it's possible to record SAPGUI screen field values into the transaction snapshots.

If analytics agent is enabled, the data collectors are passed to the transaction analytics for all business transactions.

In addition, SAPGUI match rule now contains also function code as a filter, allowing to monitor individual actions on screen, e.g. "SAVE" button.

End-user monitoring for WebGUI (SAPGUI for HTML) applications

Browser instrumentation (Javascript agent injection) can now be enabled also for the WebGUI applications. Available only as of SAP 7.40 and higher.

Call graphs in ABAP agent

ABAP call graphs are now supported for snapshots which contain the ABAP trace. Currently not available for SAPGUI transactions.

IS-U: Business Transaction Detection for Customer Interaction Center

For SAP IS-U systems a new match rule type was added to enable business transaction splitting in the Customer Interaction Center (CIC0). Now it's possible to split the business transaction based on executed front-office processes.
