  2. (Optional) In the Description field, enter more than one line of text description for your activity.
  3. In the Transaction Name field, enter the name to give to your SAP transaction. You must give the same transaction name for all the activities in a SAP transaction session.

    If you use a Begin Transaction activity, a session starts with the transaction name and in End Transaction activity if you give the same name, the session is closed. Between these two activities, you can use one or more Call SAP Function activities with or without transaction names. If you give the same transaction name as in Begin Transaction activity, it will use the same session. If not, it will create a new session. In this way, you can use the same session for all SAP calls.
