Procedure documentationAssigning Release Status Schemas to Test Workbench Objects


  • You have checked the preset release status and, if necessary, adapted it to your requirements. For more information, see the Customizing for SAP Solution Manager, at Start of the navigation path SAP Solution Manager Next navigation step Capabilities Next navigation step Test Management Next navigation step Extended Configuration Next navigation step Release Status Profile End of the navigation path.

  • You have creates a new test plan for a project in SAP Solution Manager (see Creating Test Plans for Projects).


  1. Call the Test Plan Administration.

  2. Select a newly created test plan (from the input help or your favorites) and choose Attributes.

    You go to the test plan attributes screen.

  3. On the General Data tab, assign a release status schema to the test plan and set a new release status value.

    You can select a release status schema in the test plan attributes as long as the test plan has the status New. The initial release status value is NEW.

    Note Note

    A test plan is only in status New if:

    • The test plan does not have a test status.

    • The test plan either has no status schema or it has a status schema and the release status is still NEW.

    End of the note.
  4. Save the attributes.

  5. If a signature strategy is assigned to the release status value, the system triggers the signature strategy automatically.

    The specified persons have to sign before the system can set the end status.

  6. On the History tab you can check the data changes, for example:

    • Which release status value was set

    • Whether a signature process was triggered

    • Whether the signature process was completed or cancelled

    • The person who signed and their role

  7. The system applies the values of the release status schema as follows:

    In the header of the test package management, the system displays the release status value set for the test plan as well as the execution lock, if available. If execution of the current test plan release status is locked, the system displays this lock in the worklist of the tester of the corresponding test package.


You can now change the release status again and check the data in the change history at any time.
