Function documentationTest Plan Management


With this function you can:

  • Create

  • Change, copy or delete test plans


You organize tests after you have created a project structure in Create Business Blueprint. You have Configured the process requirements, and want to test these configurations by process. When you create a test plan for a project, the default test plan structure is based on the structure of the Business Blueprint that you have previously created for your project.


To use this function, you must have defined a project in the Project Administration. You have also either defined a project structure in the Business Blueprint and assigned test cases or transactions in the Configuration of the project structure, or you have created a test catalog using the Test Workbench. You have also set up a test system landscape in Landscape Management, before organizing the tests.


With test plan management, you can:

  • Create, change, or copy test plans

  • Delete an individual test plan, or delete several test plans at the same time, after a test campaign, to clean up the system

  • Transport test plans

  • Divide test plans into test packages and assign them to testers

  • Monitor test progress with the status info system, and export test results

With test plan management, you can create test plans that are based on:

  • The project structure that you created in the Business Blueprint

  • One or more test catalogs

The test plans are the set of all test cases which you need for a specific test phase, and can comprise the following objects:

  • Manual test cases

  • External applications, for example, third-party test tools or an MS Word document

  • CATTs

  • eCATT test configurations

  • Function module tests

You can create and print a test report which contains, for example, the test case descriptions, messages and status, in the Goto menu.

You can sort the test cases in test sequences within a test package or assign test cases to different testers. For better test execution control, you can set up a workflow that is based on a release status schema.
