Procedure documentationExcluding Objects from the Optimization Strategy


The system optimizes the test scope under the assumption that an object has been completely tested when it has been tested at least once. So even if an object is used in several business processes, testing one node in the business process hierarchy is sufficient for the optimization strategy “test each object once only”. If you want to test some objects in their node contexts, you must exclude them from the optimization strategy.


  1. Start the transaction SM30.

  2. Edit the view AGS_BPCA_C_EXMPT.

  3. Add the required objects to the list of exceptions. Enter the following information for each object:

    • Dictionary: line position

    • Program ID

    • Object type

    • Object name

    • Software component

    • Package

    Note Note

    You find these specifications for example in the TBOM content display or the information displayed in the Business Process Change Analyzer. You can also use placeholders.

    End of the note.
  4. Save.


If you have excluded an object from the optimization strategy and the object is simultaneously present in multiple nodes in the business process strategy, the system handles the object separately in each node. To achieve test coverage of 100%, you must therefore add all nodes that contain the object to the test scope.

If multiple nodes that use such an object are not yet in the test scope, the object is displayed multiple times under Objects Not in Test Scope. If you select the object at least once and choose the Put in Test Scope function, the system automatically adds all nodes that use the object.
