You create a test plan for a project in the SAP Solution Manager if you want to reuse the project structure created in the Business Blueprint for a process-oriented test. You can select all the test cases and transactions which you have assigned to the project structure, for the test plan. These test cases are performed by testers; they can call assigned transactions and run test cases in them.
If you want to create a test plan based on the structure of an SAP Solution Manager project, you have created a project. You have created a system landscape for the project. You have also defined a Business Blueprint with the Configuration transaction, created test cases in the Test cases tab, and assigned them to the structure.
You can also base test plans on test catalogs which are assigned to the application component hierarchy (see Creating Test Plans).
You can also create a test plan as a template for an implementation project that uses templates. For more information, see:
1. Start the Test Plan Management.
2. Choose Test Plan → Create.
3. Enter the following data in the following dialog box:
○ Choose a Solution Manager project and a system role from the possible entries help.
○ You can specify a system data container if you want to put eCATT configurations in the test plan. You can also specify a target system, in which the eCATT configuration is to run.
The values which you specify are displayed as default values in the eCATT configuration initial screen. You can change them.
○ Enter a title for the test plan.
○ Optionally, enter a planning level for expected costs, for example Test Case, as well as planned start and end date.
The planned data as well as the actual values determined for it is applied by the system on the Planning Data tab of test plan attributes.
○ You can specify a test sequence. Test sequences are attributes of test plans, with which you can group test plans, and by which you can filter in the status info system
You define test sequences in Customizing for SAP Solution Manager under SAP Solution Manager → Capabilities → Test Administration → Extended Configuration.
4. Choose Continue.
5. Specify a package in the dialog box for the object directory entry, and choose Continue.
If there is a transportable package for the selected project, it is used to generate the test plan. Otherwise, the system shows you a dialog box for the object directory entry.
The system automatically puts the transactions which you have assigned to the project structure in the Transactions and Test Cases tabs, in the test plan.
The structure of your project is displayed. You see the attributes of a test case, in the General Data tab.
6. Choose elements from the project structure for your test plan.
You can filter the project structure, for example by assigned keywords or status. You can also filter test cases by attributes and base a test plan on the selection.
You use a link filter, for example, when creating or changing a test plan. To do so, enter the title of a document in the Link tab, for example that of a requirements document or a specification. The system then determines all test cases to which the document with that title is assigned.
7. Choose Generate Test Plan.
The system generates a test plan based on your selection, and returns to the initial screen.
The system has generated a test plan based on your selection. You can now:
● change, copy or delete the test plan
● combine test cases and transactions into test packages, and assign them to testers
You can change your test plan later. You can, for example, select additional test cases or transactions, and regenerate your test plan, without losing the status information for test cases which you have already run.
