Function documentationImplementation/Upgrade Work Center


This work center is the central access to all the information and functions you need to implement and upgrade SAP solutions. The views follow the project sequence, from the evaluation of your process requirements until your solution goes into production.


You are authorized for this work center. See the SAP Solution Manager Security Guide in the SAP Service Marketplace: Start of the navigation path published on non-SAP site Next navigation step SAP Components Next navigation step SAP Solution Manager <current release> End of the navigation path.



There is a structured diagram of the status of your projects. You can choose between the following project views:

  • My Projects

    Shows the projects to which you are assigned.

  • All Projects

    Shows the projects for which you are authorized

The project status is derived as follows:

  • Current projects

  • Completed projects

    Projects in whose project administration actual data the project end is in the past

  • Overdue projects

    Projects in whose project administration plan data the project end is in the past, but the project end, or a project milestone, is not in the past in the actual data


There is a Project List, sorted by project type and status, depending on the active query. When you mark a project in the list, the system displays details of this project below the list.

  • Project header data

  • Existing locks in Business Blueprint:

    Note Note

    In SAP Solution Manager Project Administration, you can determine the scope of a project. You can, for example, lock changes to the project structure, to freeze a Business Blueprint or restrict the expansion of a project. For more information about project scope, see Specify Scope.

    End of the note.

    The system shows whether a maintenance or project cycle has been started to manage change requests.
