API for Synthetics

ABAP Interface /AWS1/IF_SYN

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 Synthetics is SYN. 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 synthetics 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 Synthetics

You can use Amazon CloudWatch Synthetics to continually monitor your services. You can create and manage canaries, which are modular, lightweight scripts that monitor your endpoints and APIs from the outside-in. You can set up your canaries to run 24 hours a day, once per minute. The canaries help you check the availability and latency of your web services and troubleshoot anomalies by investigating load time data, screenshots of the UI, logs, and metrics. The canaries seamlessly integrate with CloudWatch ServiceLens to help you trace the causes of impacted nodes in your applications. For more information, see Using ServiceLens to Monitor the Health of Your Applications in the Amazon CloudWatch User Guide.

Before you create and manage canaries, be aware of the security considerations. For more information, see Security Considerations for Synthetics Canaries.

Using the SDK

In your code, create a client using the SDK module for Synthetics, which is created with factory method /AWS1/CL_SYN_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_syn)       = /aws1/cl_syn_factory=>create( go_session ).

Your variable go_syn is an instance of /AWS1/IF_SYN, and all of the operations in the Synthetics service are accessed by calling methods in /AWS1/IF_SYN.

API Operations

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

Factory Method

/AWS1/CL_SYN_FACTORY=>create( )

Creates an object of type /AWS1/IF_SYN.


Optional arguments:







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

Configuring Programmatically

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

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


Paginators for Synthetics can be created via get_paginator() which returns a paginator object of type /AWS1/IF_SYN_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 Synthetics can be found in interface /AWS1/IF_SYN_PAGINATOR.
