Simulate notes added to SAP systems; seems to be a useful tool. This is a brief recap of today’s SAP Mentor Monday webcast.
EasyNotes is still in beta, allows you to do an ad-hoc implementation in the system
The note could create side effects
Introduced with part of NetWeaver 7.1
Two sessions when you start debugging
It takes time to implement a note, create transports, to see if note fixes
EasyNotes – program generates XML script to simulate note
Three steps shown above
How it interfaces – the architecture
The flow of the program
Only works in ABAP systems
Manual instructions (like create DD object) not supported
IP – patent approved
See the number of notes it works with
Today deploy with a package
Two Complementary Developments
Test change dynamically
Enhancements/modifications for customers – pilot note, using EasyNotes, bypass customer enhancements
Runs as plain system
Question & Answer
Q: What are the authorizations?
A: Roles come with package, and assign roles to the package
Q: What if I have multiple notes?
A: Only addresses one note at a time; future look at putting them in one script file

Q: Are you considering to extend this tool to Business power user for helping developer during the testing?
A: Yes, all driven by authorizations
Q: How could we inplement easy note in our ABAP system ? through another SAP note ?
A: No SAP notes; reach out to SAP
Plan to release as a note end of this quarter
Tammy, you're getting slow! This took you a whole three minutes from the end of the call to post the notes! 😉
Wow, this is really interesting!
My recollection -
1 - yes
2 - new roles come with the package
3 - will defer to speaker Setu Jha
Please see my response below:
1. You can only test a Note in a system that is marked changeable. Typically scripts are disabled in production environment. The tool can be used in Q systems.
2. Debug authorization and a new authorization to run the scripting report is needed. Once the script is generated anybody who has debug authorization can load and test the script.
3. You sure can 🙂
Thank you both for the explaining words!
Eager to try it out once it is on our system 🙂
