In BW reporting in test management, you analyze BW-relevant test plans through time. This is based on the test plan structure, which contains all test cases assigned in the business process hierarchy. BW reporting can analyze a lot of large test plans.

BW-based reporting uses web templates basd on BEx Web applications, which display data graphically or in tables. The data is from the time of the last data extraction. You call the web templates in the BW system, where you apply detailed queries to the data.

You format the information for your analysis, in graphical and tabular form, by adjusting and fine-tuning it with attribute filters at various levels, and by expanding attributes.You use the filters listed, or the context menu functions. For example, you can combine several attributes to extend the scope, for a higher resolution of your data, and then filter by attribute values. Each filter restricts the data displayed, and affects further filters.

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text.

  • Message report by priority and processing status:

    You get an overview of the number, priority and processing status of messages at a specified time. By default, the system uses the date of the last data extraction as a filter.

    You can filter the list of relevant messages, by double-clicking on a processing status or priority, in the graphic.
