Background documentationUCIA Result List


Working with the Upgrade/Change Impact Analysis result list

To access the UCIA result list, click the Display Results activity in the Display phase. Specify the development classes or business processes that you want to use. Note that filtering by business processes is only possible for solution manager systems.

The result list screen contains of the following areas:

  1. Navigation Menu

    The Navigation menu is represented by different folders (left hand side panel)

  2. Result List

    The Result List is the table in the main UI frame

  3. Menu Bar

    You use the menu bar (top of screen) to switch between the compressed and detailed views, and view results that are not included in the result list.

Navigation Menu

The navigation menu contains three views:

  1. Object View

    In the object view, you can select the objects by object type and then sort the objects that you want to analyze.

  2. Severity

    In the severity view, you can view the objects that have a particular severity. For example, you can view all objects that have the severity Yellow.

  3. Processing Status

    The Processing Status view allows you to view the status of the objects. For example, when processors have adjusted an object, they set the status to Completed. You can use this view to view all objects that have this status.

  4. Summary

    The Summary view provides an aggregated view of result list. For example, if you summarize by Processing Status, you can view the number of results that are In Progress, Completed, Not Started, and so on.

Note Note

If the control system is a Solution Manager system, then you can also see the Business Process View. In the business process view, you can view information about the business processes.

End of the note.
Compressed View

The compressed view is the default view for the result list, and provides information such as:




The processing status of the custom object

Object Type

The type of customer object

Object Name

The name of the customer object


The name of the processor who is processing the customer object (normally the author)

Severity Text - Customer Objects

A text that describes the severity of the impact

Comment when the Status is Changed

A comment that can be added when changing the status


A time stamp that is set, as soon as the status is changed


A time stamp that is set, as soon as the status is changed


Name of the author of the customer object

Severity of the impact

Indicates the severity that the impact has on the customer object.


Description of the impact.

Severity Text-Customer Objects

A textual description of the severity, for example, green, yellow or red.


The name of the package that the custom object is a part of.

P. Adjustment Time

The planned average adjustment time for the custom object.

To navigate directly to an object in a remote system, click the name of the customer object. You must specify an RFC connection from the control system to the remote system. This feature is also available in the Detailed View, and is useful when you want to make some changes to the selected object in the remote system (generally a development system).

You can change the status of an object. Initially, the status field of each object is either Not relevant or Not Started.

In the Compressed View, the column Comment when the Status is Changed indicates if the custom object has references to SAP objects. If the column is empty, there are no references to SAP objects.

In the Reasons columns, the system displays the impact of the change for the reference object, for example the method has changed or the program coding has changed.

If the system displays the message text Object is impacted due to indirectly referenced object then another indirectly referenced SAP object is responsible for the change.

Example Example

Direct and Indirect References to objects

Example: Direct Reference

A custom object, for example a program that references a standard table. The program makes a direct reference to this table.

Example: Indirect Reference

A custom object, for example a program, that references a data element within a standard table. This is an indirect reference because a data element is directly referenced by a table, not a program.

End of the example.
Detailed View

You can also determine the relationship between the referenced SAP objects and the customer objects by navigating to the detailed view of the list. To do this, choose Detailed View.

Here, you can view the relationship between custom objects and referenced SAP objects.

For a custom object, you can view the details of any changes to a referenced object (if a new version exists because of an upgrade or support package implementation), in the Reasons columns. The system displays the reason, for example Method has Changed or Program Coding has Changed. If the reason is Object is impacted due to indirectly referenced object, then there is no impact of the directly referenced SAP object that is displayed. This means that another indirectly referenced SAP object is responsible for the change.
