please can you send the steps.

sapSystem="QAS"
from com.sap.conn.jco import JCoDestinationManager
destination = JCoDestinationManager.getDestination(sapSystem)
function = destination.getRepository().getFunction("RFC_READ_TABLE")

inputTableParam = function.getTableParameterList().getTable("FIELDS")
inputTableParam.appendRow()
inputTableParam.setValue("FIELDNAME", "CHECT")

inputParamList = function.getImportParameterList()
inputParamList.setValue("QUERY_TABLE", "PAYR")
inputParamList.setValue("DELIMITER", ";")

optionsTableParam = function.getTableParameterList().getTable("OPTIONS")
optionsTableParam.appendRow()
optionsTableParam.setValue("TEXT", "CHECT = '436396'")

function.execute(destination)
table = function.getTableParameterList().getTable("DATA")
print table

I have written this code in Script console, I am getting error as below:

Hi,
May be a bit off topic, but why not use the Sepasoft SAP Certified Business Connector? See Interface for SAP ERP is certified by SAP Labs | Sepasoft MES Solutions

In our company they dont want use Sepasoft. we want to get data from SAP to Ignition.

You have python syntax error from improper indentation. Nothing to do with your library or SAP. Fix your syntax. (Learn how python uses whitespace and follow the rules.)

Tip: use the </> code formatting button when posting code. It will indent properly (important for Python) and give syntax highlighting.

You can use the 🖉 edit link to fix your post. Select the code block and press </>.

Did you get your code to work?

I very much want to read data from SAP as well.

few steps we succeeded, still getting error.
You can get some details in the below link.

How is your progress @kavya_shree?

I think Sepasoft is slower than custom SQL and not as effective with Perspective.

we are able to call BAPI from Ignition without using Sepasoft.

Sure, using JCO lib helps. But for whom is not a developer, using third party modules (and certified) is a real accelerator. And what about updates... Maintenance of system can be a nightmare. Also, think that end user are likely to want low or no code solution...

What is BAPI?
business application interface?
I don't know how you mean.

Do you mean that you have a perspective page that shows the SAP BAPI Explorer?

I was wondering about running queries on data in SAP to use in my graphs and tables on perspective pages.
Do you have some links to help me?

Can I request somewhere to get videos on implementations accessing SAP from Ignition without Sepasoft or do the videos exist, and I don't know it?

BAPIs are the primary method through which customer code and third-party applications interact with SAP products.
I didn't find any videos on this, we tried using Forum Help only.
U can refer all the steps in the previous links.
