Procedure documentationDefining Leading System Role and Adding, Changing or Deleting Other System Roles



  • Check, or change, the assignment of logical components to your systems, to ensure the monitoring of your business processes (see Editing Logical Component)

  • Add other system roles, if applicable, to ensure monitoring of all the systems in your transport path


You have:


  1. Choose the Solution Directory application (SOLMAN_DIRECTORY).

  2. Select your solution.

    You can define, change and delete the system roles and logical components of your solution on the System Group tab, as follows: Proceed as follows:

    • Specify the leading role of the solution

      Note Note

      In the Solution Directory, along with a leading system role for your solution, you specify a navigation role. The standard role selected is production system. The navigation role is user-dependent, but not solution-dependent. The navigation role must correspond to the leading system role.

      An exception would be the following: You have included a system with a role other then the leading role in the solution, for example a quality assurance system. You want to call transactions in this system, instead of in the system of the leading role. To do this, you select the quality assurance system as the navigation role.

      To change the navigation role, choose Start of the navigation path Solution Directory Next navigation step Change Navigation Role... End of the navigation path, select the desired entry, and confirm.

      End of the note.
      1. Use the input help to choose the leading system role on the System Group tab.

        Once you have saved your entries, you can no longer change the leading system role.
