Scenario Description

The integration between the SAP Solution Manager and SilkCentral Test Manager supports following scenarios: Synchronize SAP business blueprints data from the SAP Solution Manager to SilkCentral Test Manager. In SCTM a corresponding requirements structure will be created. Example for SAP structure: Example for SCTM structure:

After the synchronization the SilkCentral Test Manager can be used to create test plans, test cases etc. This is completely under the control of SCTM and not part of this document.

For reporting purposes the test results will be synchronized back from SilkCentral Test Manager to the SAP Solution Manager. All data relevant to SCTM are displayed in a separate tab called "SCTM":

A SAP Solution Manager issue tracking plug-in for SCTM is now available in the SAP Solution Manager in order to create issues/incidents in the SAP Solution Manager Service Desk for certain test cases. The created incidents are linked to the test case in SCTM. It is also possible to link existing incidents to a test case in SCTM based on the incident ID. Status changes for SAP Solution Manager incidents will be reflected in the SCRM Issue Tracking.

User GuideProject Synchronization to SCTMGeneral Information

"Project synchronization" means that following data are transferred from the SAP Solution Manager to SCTM: Project structure (scenarios, business processes, business process steps) Structure attributes Documents o o automatically selected documents based on the document types (see customizing) documents added manually by a user in the SAP Solution Manager

Document attributes

3.1.2

Synchronization of the project structure

The project structure is always synchronized completely, i.e. there is no possibility to restrict or change the information to be synchronized.

3.1.3

Synchronization of documents

Documents are always transferred as links not as binaries. That means that the SCTM user always has access to the latest version of the document. For documents the synchronization can be restricted based on the selected document types in the customizing. All document types chosen in the customizing are synchronized automatically to SCTM. If no document type was configured, then all documents are synchronized. In order to get an overview which documents were synchronized the user has to select the node (i.e. the scenario, business process or business process step) in the transaction SOLAR02 and navigate to the tab "SCTM -> Synchronized Documents":

The column "Sent to SCTM" displays the timestamp when the related document link was sent to SCTM. The column "User Name" is empty if the document was automatically synchronized to SCTM. Otherwise it shows the name of the user that added the document to the synchronization process.

The user can also manually select a document for synchronization. In order to add a document manually, use the button above the table. The popup window shows all documents of the current node that are not synchronized automatically.
