API for Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights

ABAP Interface /AWS1/IF_AIN

The "TLA" is a Three Letter Abbreviation that appears in ABAP class names, data dictionary objects and other ABAP objects throughout the AWS SDK for SAP ABAP. The TLA for Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights is AIN. This TLA helps squeeze ABAP objects into the 30-character length limit of the ABAP data dictionary.


To install the AWS SDK for SAP ABAP, import the Core transport, along with the transport for the Application Insights module and other API modules you are interested in. A few modules are included in the Core transport itself. For more information, see the Developer Guide guide.

About The Service

Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights

Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights is a service that helps you detect common problems with your applications. It enables you to pinpoint the source of issues in your applications (built with technologies such as Microsoft IIS, .NET, and Microsoft SQL Server), by providing key insights into detected problems.

After you onboard your application, CloudWatch Application Insights identifies, recommends, and sets up metrics and logs. It continuously analyzes and correlates your metrics and logs for unusual behavior to surface actionable problems with your application. For example, if your application is slow and unresponsive and leading to HTTP 500 errors in your Application Load Balancer (ALB), Application Insights informs you that a memory pressure problem with your SQL Server database is occurring. It bases this analysis on impactful metrics and log errors.

Using the SDK

In your code, create a client using the SDK module for Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights, which is created with factory method /AWS1/CL_AIN_FACTORY=>create(). In this example we will assume you have configured an SDK profile in transaction /AWS1/IMG called ZFINANCE.

DATA(go_session)   = /aws1/cl_rt_session_aws=>create( 'ZFINANCE' ).
DATA(go_ain)       = /aws1/cl_ain_factory=>create( go_session ).

Your variable go_ain is an instance of /AWS1/IF_AIN, and all of the operations in the Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights service are accessed by calling methods in /AWS1/IF_AIN.

API Operations

For an overview of ABAP method calls corresponding to API operations in Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights, see the Operation List.

Factory Method

/AWS1/CL_AIN_FACTORY=>create( )

Creates an object of type /AWS1/IF_AIN.


Optional arguments:







/AWS1/IF_AIN represents the ABAP client for the Application Insights service, representing each operation as a method call. For more information see the API Page page.

Configuring Programmatically

DATA(lo_config) = DATA(go_ain)->get_config( ).

lo_config is a variable of type /AWS1/CL_AIN_CONFIG. See the documentation for /AWS1/CL_AIN_CONFIG for details on the settings that can be configured.


Paginators for Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights can be created via get_paginator() which returns a paginator object of type /AWS1/IF_AIN_PAGINATOR. The operation method that is being paginated is called using the paginator object, which accepts any necessary parameters to provide to the underlying API operation. This returns an iterator object which can be used to iterate over paginated results using has_next() and get_next() methods.

Details about the paginator methods available for service Amazon CloudWatch Application Insights can be found in interface /AWS1/IF_AIN_PAGINATOR.
