API for Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client

ABAP Interface /AWS1/IF_WST

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 WorkSpaces Thin Client is WST. 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 WorkSpaces Thin Client 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 WorkSpaces Thin Client is an affordable device built to work with Amazon Web Services End User Computing (EUC) virtual desktops to provide users with a complete cloud desktop solution. WorkSpaces Thin Client is a compact device designed to connect up to two monitors and USB devices like a keyboard, mouse, headset, and webcam. To maximize endpoint security, WorkSpaces Thin Client devices do not allow local data storage or installation of unapproved applications. The WorkSpaces Thin Client device ships preloaded with device management software.

You can use these APIs to complete WorkSpaces Thin Client tasks, such as creating environments or viewing devices. For more information about WorkSpaces Thin Client, including the required permissions to use the service, see the Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client Administrator Guide. For more information about using the Command Line Interface (CLI) to manage your WorkSpaces Thin Client resources, see the WorkSpaces Thin Client section of the CLI Reference.

Using the SDK

In your code, create a client using the SDK module for Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client, which is created with factory method /AWS1/CL_WST_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_wst)       = /aws1/cl_wst_factory=>create( go_session ).

Your variable go_wst is an instance of /AWS1/IF_WST, and all of the operations in the Amazon WorkSpaces Thin Client service are accessed by calling methods in /AWS1/IF_WST.
