HRMS (SAP) Access

There are two methods for accessing HRMS: SAP GUI Windows client, and the Virtual Private Network (VPN). SAP GUI is available to HRMS professional users only. The following areas will assist in accessing both the SAP GUI and the Virtual Private Network (VPN):

SAP GUI Windows Client Software

SAP GUI is the preferred access method for frequent HRMS users, and must be used when the user:

  • Needs full scope of HRMS functionality
  • Uses Windows oriented applications in conjunction with HRMS (Microsoft Office and etc.)
  • Requires multiple user sessions (maximum of 6)
  • Creates Ad Hoc reports
  • Prints large reports
  • Accesses Business Explorer
  • Requires file transfers

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

If your agency is not in the State Government Network (SGN) contact WaTech to discuss VPN services in order to establish an alternate method of accessing HRMS remotely.

SAP 7.60 Software Download

All current SAP GUI updates and patches can be downloaded from this page.

Downloads are primarily upgrades and patches for applications that reside on the desktop, or agency networks and enable interaction with HRMS.

The most current SAP GUI 7.60 is available for download. If you currently have SAP GUI 7.40 installed, the installation file will automatically convert the HRMS menu entries in the “saplogon.ini” file to “SAPUILandscape.xml” when you upgrade to SAP GUI 7.60.

SAP GUI 7.40 version interface remains viable, and though we are not requiring an immediate upgrade to SAP GUI 7.60 at this time, the upgrade to SAP GUI 7.60 is recommended prior to requesting technical support from the OFM Help Desk.

Always review instructions prior to downloading.
