Below step will hep to configure the BRF+ using category id.


Test Management configuration.

Incident Management configuration


SAP Solution Manager 7.1 SP11 System used for below screen shot capture and configuration.


1. In the test management, for the test status “Fail Retest Required”  needs to raise the defect message .

In my scenario we used ZMIN for defect incident configuration for BRF+ action profile usage .

so for BRF+, active the action definition ZMIN_STD_FIND_PARTNER_FDT in ZMIN_STD action profile


2.During the defect incident creation in test management using the category schema  like shown below

  • Hi Karthik,

    Nice blog.

    I tried this as we had similar requirement. The simulation gives me correct result, however on the screen this is not working. I have activated the action definition in action profile.

    Any clue what else could be the issue.

    Thanks in advance.
