Function documentationCalculation of Configuration Status


To have an up-to-date overview of the configuration status of SAP Solution Manager, the system provides status information on different levels:

  • Status of individual activities is displayed in the Status column. For further information, the log area provides detailed information on each activity performed.

  • Status of step or substep is calculated based on the activities belonging to the step. The status of a step or substep is displayed in the roadmap area.

    Note Note

    In some cases, the step status may not be displayed in the roadmap. In general, the status is not shown for steps and substeps for which displaying the status does not make sense for a configuration, such as for the scope selection in some scenarios.

    End of the note.

  • Grey: Activity Not Yet Performed

  • Green: Activity Performed

    Activity has been performed successfully.

On step level, a yellow status symbol with an exclamation point can appear. This symbol indicates that activities have to be re-executed due to changes to the system. If you display the step, the activities affected are marked in the Updates Needed column.
