SAP Solution Manager is being used for Test Management from ages but many customer prefer third party tools for automation like QTP (Quick Test Professional ) etc.

Before Solution Manager 7.1 version we have to integrate the HPQC to use the tools like QTP but from now on in Solution Manager 7.1 onwards the Test Automation framework is been introduced.

This takes care of directly integrating HP QTP and Solution Manager. Yes you read it correct no need for a HPQC license.

This will save cost and I think will attract more customer to utilize Solution Manager 7.1 for testing.In addition it is easy to register and integrate HP QTP with Solution Manager.

The configuration is very simple just logon to solution manager Test Management workcenter and register the QTP their and this way integration is easily achieved.

The above pdf on pg 12 cover those simple steps (HOW TO).

Thus, Test Automation Framework allows a seamless creation of automated test cases from Solution Manager BPR with 3rd party Testing tools like QTP.

      Hi Karthik

      we always have the option of integration of solman with hpqc or tao and qtp

      test automation framework is basically used when you want direct integration of QTP with solman without QC but it is required and you can always integrate QC with solman

      hope it clarifies

    Hi Prakhar

    With Solman 7.1 sp 10 , we have now CBTA as another option, as in comparison with QTP it allows unlimited testers, whereas QTP provides you only 2 free license.

    Functionally how the two products are different or how can we make our choice between the two?

    Many Thanks
