Question ID: 104147

As an SAP User, If I upload requirements in to Quality Center manually, then add the Solution Manager to Quality Center Adapter to my tool set, when I do an export of the Blueprint From Solution Manager to Quality Center – Will it overwrite my manually entered requirements?

What is the source data for the SM Keywords, SM Components in HPQC requirements details. Is the data coming from SOLMAN ?

The data that is moved over from Solution Manager to HP Quality Center 'MAY' include the following:

Blueprint, which includes Master Data, Org Units, Scenarios, Business Process and Process Steps.

Documentation, which 'MAY' come from the Proj Documentation, Gen Documentation, Configuration, Development or Training Tabs. Documents will display in Solution Manager within the 'Paper Clip' icon to the left of each Business Process and/or Process Step.

Transactions (T-Codes), Config Objects (IMG's) and 'other' development objects 'MAY' be copied over as well. As a matter of best practice, you'd want to associate only the T-Codes that are relevant for your Process Step as an item to export to QC.

Also should take advantage of requirements traceability with this export function for Unit, Scenario/String, Integration and User Acceptance Testing. You can now very easily demonstrate full requirements traceability at each testing phase for your organization.

Also note...When 'Defects' occur that get pushed to the process teams, then to ABAP...and it's determined that they are SAP related...there is a NEW 'Status' that automatically pushes that defect, along with all the defect history, screenshots etc...over to SAP via Service Desk, to be worked. Once SAP completes work, they simply change the 'Status' and the now resolved defect is ready for you to test. This visibility is available with the integration between Solution Manager and Quality Center.

Hope this helps!

Hi Andrew, when you move reqirements from the SolMan Blueprint to QC a new folder structure is created in QC with all the requirements sent by SolMan. This folder structure is tied to SolMan so if you need to modify any requirement you have to do it from the SolMan side.

In regards with the requirements entered manually, they will not be affected when you enter your SolMan requirements, but they will not count as part of the integration between SolMan and QC.

My question here for you is there any reason why you want to enter manual requirements? Isn't it better that you move all your requirements from SolMan?

Best Regards.

Yes Cesar, It would be best to have all your requirment in Solution Manager and have one source of the truth.
