Step 1: Enter transaction sm_workcenter or open launchpad. Click on Solution Documentation

Step 2: Click on the menu as shown to select Process document option

Step 3 : Now we can select the various element to be put in the Process document as per our requirement

Step 4: Below pop up just shows the images as I have some in the solution documentation already created and want to export them as selected in above step.

Step 5: Done, A document will generated and saved to your local desktop/laptop. Below is the sample one generated for me as per selection and also including my process diagram and their relevant information.

      Hello Prakhar,

      Thanks for sharing your knowledge. This is a nice and simple document to understand the new features of Solution Documentation in Solution Manager 7.2. I am looking to forward to have more such knowledge documents on Solman 7.2 in future.

      Thanks once again.

      Were you able to generate the process document by bringing the IMG object with the help of each IMG's SPRO together in the document generated with the Configuration option?

      Hi, Prakhar!

      What do you think about some stretched diagrams in Process Document? Can we avoid it?

      Best Regards!

      This is a great find.  When I run the above steps though, two things.  1.  Each row says that it fails, says 'Diagram Needs to be reconstructed'.  Also, how do I select only a certain process or select items on a process?  My pop up has 3038 items in it that it is trying to generate for?

      Dear Luis/ Harsha,

      Make sure that the Embedded Search is configured correctly and you don't have any errors in 'Solution Administration', all green 🙂

      Go to Solution Administration and perform in the Global Functions menu Service Activities  -> Check Search Infrastructure.

      Regs,

      Hi Prakhar Saxena,

      when I generate the process document, selecting configuration, it only generates the document with the IMG objects and not with the IMG Help description contained in SPRO, could you help me?
