Next week the new support package 5 for SAP Solution Manager 7.1 is supposed to be shipped. All existing Business Process Monitoring and Business Process Analytics customers might be surprised when they enter the setup environment after the support package implementation. The setup environment was completely renewed. You will now find a Web Dynpro application in which you can actually maintain confguration across all solutions (if you have corresponding authorization). Within the navigation tree the structure below the solution remained the same (Business Scenario > Business Process > Step).

With this new setup environment there also come a few new features, e.g. it is now possible to generate and activate monitoring for single monitoring objects while in former times you always had to generate and activate an entire business process. You can also see the individual status whether a monitoring object is activated or not. If you switch-on monitoring for background jobs that are documented within the SAP Solution Manager then you can also find the assigned Job Documents in a separate tab strip. Another tab strip can contain Monitoring Requirements, i.e. requirements that have been previously maintained in the SAP Solution Manager CRM (transaction type SMOR).

The last entry in the screenshot above shows the new “Monitoring Object List”. This list allows the search for all monitoring objects according to certain criteria, e.g. all monitoring objects belonging to a certain business process. Within the result list you can perform mass maintenance (generating, activating, changing schedules).

    Hi Volker,

    Thank you for a short ovierview. I have been trying to find more detailed description of the setup, however I could find only previous version documentation. If there is a document for the new version could you share it?

    Regards,

    Jolanta

      Hi Jolanta,

      a detailed new Setup Guide is still work in progress and will be uploaded to http://service.sap.com/BPM > Media Library > Technical Information as soon as it is finalized. For the time being there is “only” a high-level Setup Guide available as part of the Ramp-up knowledge transfer page http://service.sap.com/RKT-SOLMAN. You can download this document via http://www.service.sap.com/~sapidb/011000358700000706302012E.pdf

      Kind Regards

      Volker
