SAP ABAP and PGP Command Line

Created: 02 Aug 2012 • Updated: 02 Aug 2012 | 3 comments


I had the traiversion of PGP CL download and installed on a windows2003 server.

I wrote a ABAP-report in SAP with the task: A normal file to a create of a encryption file. But report doesn't work.

But on the OS promt works fine (the same pgp command). Is this a problem with the trialversion or others limited?

Best Regards

How does it "not work" when run from your script?

My guess is that there is either a problem with licensing, or with finding the appropriate keys.

Add "pgp --version --verbose" to the front of your SAP script and look for differences in the "File information" and "Licensing" sections, compared to running it from the OS prompt.

Assuming the trial version is correct (see above post) what output do you get?  try adding the --verbose option to the end of your script to get a more detailed output
