IT Calendar and CHARM integration Solman 7.1 SP10 (How To)

In this document you can find additional Auth. Roles/Objects which are not document by SAP and they are necessary for normal work with IT Calendar.

To be able to use IT calendar integrated with the CHARM features  you should perform customizing in SPRO like is presented in the  IT Calendar Customizing PDF document.

In my case Change Manager should have responsibility to maintain IT calendar from the SMMN document type.

then you will get Calender

Now you will be able to either  Schedule New IT event or to Schedule Work mode :

To Schedule an Work Mode

The Change Manager Authorization  Roles To Maintain IT Calender

Change Manager should have additional authorization roles besides his standard ones to be able to maintain IT calendar. In order to work with calendar CM should have below SAP roles:

  1. SAP_ITCALENDER_DIS with the slight modification like is presented in the below pictures
  2. SAP_SM_DTM_ALL with default authorization.

SAP_ITCALENDER_DIS

After you make copy to Z* role you should add additional  authorization object  SM_ITE_ACT

/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/2013_11_13_16_08_10_323178.jpg

SAP_SM_DTM_ALL

Make copy SAP role to Z* one.

      Hi Boris,

      A very nice blog, thanks for sharing.

      Just a short correction, the first role is SAP_ITCALENDER_DIS instead of SAP_ITCALENDER_DISP.

      Appreciate the effort.

      Regards.

      Hello,

      is there a way to synchonize Solution Manager IT Calendar with other application. Especially from SOLMAN to another downtime manager.

      If no! Could we expect functionality in future?

      Best regards

      Jan

      Hi Jan,

      as far as I know there is possibility to integrate it, but how I do not know!

      If you are regular SAP customer please create OSS note and ask SAP support for this possibility  .
