After a long wait or more than a decade(personally), we finally have the most awaited feature in document management capability in SAP Solution Manager 7.2 version in SPS 06 onwards.
Yes, it is now possible to have the mass upload of documents in SAP Solution Manager including their attribute maintenance.
We recently upgraded couple of customer on Solution Manager 7.2 SPS06 or SPS07 and finally seen this new functionality working out of box. Ofcourse, it was earlier working in Build Add-on etc. but it was with few customers only.
Above is now available to all and it is really a much awaited features boosting the usage of documentation in Solution Documentation scenario of Solution Manager.
However, if you have upgraded your solution manager from 7.1 version to latest Solution Manager 7.2 SPS06 or SPS07 then it will be hidden be default in SOLDOC.
You should perform below simple step to enable it.
Step 1 – Goto solution documentation tile from fiori launchpad or enter soldoc transaction code.
Choose the ribbon or global menu and select SHOW DROP AREA.
Step 2 : We should be able to see the button or area in the lower portion of screen DROP DOCUMENTS HERE as below.
Hence, we can now drag and drop several documents which can be of type pdf/document/excel files etc. from our local desktop/laptop to specific location in solution documentation.
In addition, I would like to also share that I have seen sometime a below error i.e. SERVICE CANNOT BE REACHED.
It is a bit difficult to troubleshoot as it didn’t provide much information here but basically we need to activate one SICF service.
Kindly visit SICF transaction and activate below service i.e. SMUD_DROP_DOCS.
Once it is activated you will be able to see the button for mass upload as below.
Really an exciting feature and will share some information regarding the same latter. It is really saving huge efforts for maintaining or uploading several documents at the same time.
Feel free to share your opinion about the same.
