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: Limitations?

A: Limitations from the kernel; challenge to pass data between work processes – working to overcome them

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!  πŸ˜‰

      Wow, this is really interesting!


      1. Does this mean I can "test" a Note on quality or production in the Debugger withoug going through the whole transport cycle from development system?
      2. Do I need debug and replace authorization in the system to use it or is debug enough?
      3. Can I generate my own scripts and propose them to SAP support for solving errors?

      cheers Carsten

      Hello Carsten,

      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 πŸ™‚
