API for AWS Price List Service

ABAP Interface /AWS1/IF_PRI

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 AWS Price List Service is PRI. 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 Pricing 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

The Amazon Web Services Price List API is a centralized and convenient way to programmatically query Amazon Web Services for services, products, and pricing information. The Amazon Web Services Price List uses standardized product attributes such as Location, Storage Class, and Operating System, and provides prices at the SKU level. You can use the Amazon Web Services Price List to do the following:

  • Build cost control and scenario planning tools

  • Reconcile billing data

  • Forecast future spend for budgeting purposes

  • Provide cost benefit analysis that compare your internal workloads with Amazon Web Services

Use GetServices without a service code to retrieve the service codes for all Amazon Web Services, then GetServices with a service code to retrieve the attribute names for that service. After you have the service code and attribute names, you can use GetAttributeValues to see what values are available for an attribute. With the service code and an attribute name and value, you can use GetProducts to find specific products that you're interested in, such as an AmazonEC2 instance, with a Provisioned IOPS volumeType.

For more information, see Using the Amazon Web Services Price List API in the Billing User Guide.

Using the SDK

In your code, create a client using the SDK module for AWS Price List Service, which is created with factory method /AWS1/CL_PRI_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_pri)       = /aws1/cl_pri_factory=>create( go_session ).

Your variable go_pri is an instance of /AWS1/IF_PRI, and all of the operations in the AWS Price List Service service are accessed by calling methods in /AWS1/IF_PRI.

API Operations

For an overview of ABAP method calls corresponding to API operations in AWS Price List Service, see the Operation List.

Factory Method

/AWS1/CL_PRI_FACTORY=>create( )

Creates an object of type /AWS1/IF_PRI.


Optional arguments:







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

Configuring Programmatically

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

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


Paginators for AWS Price List Service can be created via get_paginator() which returns a paginator object of type /AWS1/IF_PRI_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 AWS Price List Service can be found in interface /AWS1/IF_PRI_PAGINATOR.
