Before we start with this subject will be nice if you can read blog related to maintenance of the Template project in SAP Environment:
- A template project have to be maintained in the SAP system (client) where you have possibility to make changes (which is not productive client according to SAP rules and best practice) – client should be open for changes. For more info on this subject please refer the blog Template Projects in Productive Systems – Solution Manager – SCN Wiki
To explain complete process (ARIS <> Solman) please follow the steps on the below screen shot.
Template Project Creations and Preparation
In our BLOG example we will create our Template project in the DEV environment , therefore client will be open for changes.
First you will create a template project:
create a template project
Activations of the Global Roll out activity
now it’s a time to create a template name for your template project
next step in solar01 transaction is to select which BP belongs to which template by following the below steps:
After you fished with set up of the your Z_TEMPLATE_1 to the corresponding BP Scenarios and choosing Global Attribute as the Local, you can go back and to the SOLAR_PROJECT_ADMIN transaction to activate yours template – Z_TEMPLATE_1 in order to become visible!
You have to make your template visible because only then you can use it in the other project like is Implementation ,…!
after you switch visibilities yours template will be ready for use, and visible for other projects!
In case you are maintaining your Template project in your DEV environment now is proper point of time to transport your Template project from your development environment to your production environment for the further work!!
after creations of the implementation project go to the project SCOPE tab and there select your recently created templates.
now you can go to the solar01 transactions to check are your templates are available in your implementation project and to check is the source is your template project (in our case BM_TEMP_XX)
Now you implementation and template project are ready for further use in the ARIS process of synchronizations and maintenance .
