Tricentis Test Automation for SAP Available

New version of Tricentis Test Automation for SAP Solution Manager 7.2 has been released.

This new version is based on Tricentis Tosca version 14.2. All details can be found on the wiki.

The download still take places from here: https://support.sap.com/en/alm/partners/test-automation.html

 

In July 2020, SAP and Tricentis announced an exciting new partnership in software testing and test automation.

One of the aspects of this partnership is to provide the automation capabilities of Tricentis (restricted to testing SAP products) with SAP Solution Manager 7.2 to SAP Enterprise Support customers.

This new offering is called Tricentis Test Automation for SAP (acronym: TTA).

I am really thrilled to let you know that Tricentis Test Automation for SAP is now available for SAP Enterprise Support customers to download!
To proceed directly to the download area please visit this page: https://support.sap.com/en/alm/partners/test-automation.html

TTA will enable customers to benefit from the following test automation capabilities of Tricentis:

  • Automated testing of all SAP products without restrictions on UI technologies (SAPUI5, Fiori, SAP GUI, SuccessFactors, Ariba, …)
  • API-based automated testing of SAP products (RFC, Rest, oData, …)
  • Test Data Services:
    • Manage your test data centrally in the TTA Server
    • Let your automated test cases dynamically retrieve data from the TTA Server and also update data into the TTA Server at execution time

With this offering, SAP and Tricentis are bringing one of the world leading automation engines (as ranked by recognized analyst firms) to all SAP Enterprise Support customers with no additional cost.

TTA is meant to be used with SAP Solution Manager 7.2. SAP Solution Manager will be the leading system for application lifecycle management activities:

  • Requirement
  • Build
  • Test
  • Deploy

All the test management activities are managed in SAP Solution Manager:

  • Test case preparation
  • Test planning
  • Test execution
  • Reporting

Tricentis Test Automation is:

  • The environment for automated test case authoring
  • The automation engine for automated test execution

The integration between SAP Solution Manager and TTA uses the existing interface for test automation tools (subject of a certification from SAP: SM-TSTR).

Please be aware that Focused Build for SAP Solution Manager leverages all the automation capabilities of SAP Solution Manager, hence all the benefits of Tricentis Test Automation for SAP also apply to Focused Build for SAP Solution Manager.

This picture shows where TTA fits into the SAP Solution Manager (and Focused Build) Test Suite:

      Hi Nicolas

      First thing, thanks for the blog.

      Couple of Questions .

      1. Likewise is there any integration between TTA and SAP CALM
      2. How about the other 2 tools Tricentis Flood (For Load Testing) and Tricentis Livecompare for (Impact analysis) - Are these part of TTA or ECT?

      Many Thanks

      Hi Basanth,

       

      SAP Solution Manager integrates with the on-premise products from Tricentis ECT (known as Tosca) and TTA.

      SAP Cloud ALM will integrate with the Cloud product from Tricentis which is currently under development. This is why the integration between SAP Cloud ALM and Tricentis is planned to be available in Q4 2021.

       

      Concerning the product portfolio, my dear friend Chris has already provided some answers.

      Here are some more details on the whole offering:

      Complete positioning slide deck.

      I hope that it answers your questions. I will also encourage you to visit the FAQ mentioned in the TTA Wiki on SCN.

      Best regards

      Responding to Q2:

      • Tricentis Flood is available as an SAP Solution Extension. It is known as SAP Load Testing by Tricentis. It is not included with TTA or ECT.
      • Tricentis LiveCompare is available as an SAP Solution Extension. It is known as SAP Change Impact Analysis by Tricentis. It is not included with TTA or ECT. It does integrate with ECT.

      HTH. Feel free to DM me if I can help further.

       

      Chris.

      Hi Nicolas

       

      That's a really nice article that gives insights for TTA with SAP. Also need to understand if TTA helps in executing the batch commands, jar files or selenium scripts, etc)? And how different is it from the actual Tricentis Tosca?

       

      Regards

      Ashwin.

      Hi Ashwin,

      TTA is actually a subset of Tosca. It is overall the same user interface, but restricted to the SAP testing (only the SAP automation engines are shipped with TTA). And functionalities such as Issues, requirements and Test Case Design are deactivated from TTA.

       

      Just for your complete understanding "SAP Enterprise Continuous Testing by Tricentis" (Acronym ECT) is indeed Tricentis Tosca. And this one is now on the SAP price list and comprises all the functionalities for automation.

      I hope that it clarifies the situation.

      Best regards

      Hi Nicolas

       

      Thank you for your instant reply. The Issues, requirements, and Test Case Design are deactivated from TTA? So that means we can only use only the Modules, Test Cases, and Execution list? Test data will not be possible?

       

      And the execution of the batch commands, jar files or selenium scripts, etc can be possible in TTA as that of Tricentis Tosca? Am I right in my understanding?

       

      Regards

      Ashwin Mor.

      Hello Ashwin,

       

      Yes you are right. Requirements, Issues and TestCaseDesign are effectively deactivated in TTA. Same thing for Reporting and TestPlanning.

      In TTA you have access to those sections:

      • Modules
      • TestCases
      • Execution
      • Configurations

      However, you can use the Test Data Service (TDS) functionality offered with TTA in order to manage your test data. TDS is included in the Tosca Server, which is a separate software that can be dowloaded from SAP. Tosca Server is a web application running on IIS. Interactions between TTA and TDS are provided through a set of dedicated Modules in TTA (part of the standard.tsu subset). You can easily create data, read data, update data etc within your TTA Test Cases.

      Do not hesitate to contact me directly in case of further questions.

      Kind Regards,

      Christian

      Hi Christian

       

      Thank you for the elaborated information. It's really helpful. Thank you.

      Any idea about the execution of the batch commands, jar files or selenium scripts, etc. Is this possible with TTA?

       

      Regards

      Hi Ashwin,

      No. TTA is not able to perform these tasks.

      Only the full version (ECT) is able to handle that.

      Hello,

      "Automated testing of all SAP products without restrictions" - Does this also cover standalone SAP softwares such as Crystal Reports and BEx? I'm assuming this is only possible through SAP ECT or Tosca with UIA or VisionAI engines.

      Thanks!

      Hi Nicolas!

      What about CBTA? Will be discontinued?

      My companies worked creating a lot of test scripts using CBTA integrated with Soldoc.

      Hello Warlei,

       

      CBTA is absolutely NOT discontinued. It is part of all the official roll-out material: CBTA will be supported as long as SAP Solution Manager is supported.

      All your investments in CBTA are safe.

      For full details, please take a look at this slide deck: https://support.sap.com/content/dam/support/en_us/library/ssp/alm/sap-solution-manager/knowledge-transfer/SAP%20and%20Tricentis%20Partnership_External.pdf

      When does SAP plan to release an updated version of TTA? I see the ECT product version 14.2 patch 2 is available here https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/3097385, while it seems TTA is still at version 13.4; I am sure other customers are using both TTA and ECT and would like to keep Tosca client, server and TTA client all in sync.

      Dear Theresa,

       

      I am working on it. I hope to have it done at the end of this week, worst case scenario end of next.

      Of course this is my current planning, this is a non-binding statement and there might be last minute changes, but I am trying my best.

      Yes I am able to download; I see patch level 2 for TTA client 14.2 but patch 0 for TTA recorder and server. Is that correct?

      Do we have to install TTA server ? Can we SAP use cloud based offering ?

      Hi Vinod,

       

      the TTA offering that we have today and which is meant to be used with SAP Solution Manager is indeed an on premise solution. So the TTA server indeed needs to be installed and maintained.

       

      Next year we will get a new flavor of the SAP and Tricentis offering which will be really cloud oriented. We expect to offer a TTA cloud version which will integrate with SAP Cloud ALM*.

       

      Cheers
      Nicolas

      Hello Nicolas,

      We are using TTA with Solution Manager. I understood from earlier conversations that TTA doesn't support Reporting part. we have observed that even Dokusnapper is not supported (No word document generated). What is the possible way of getting an execution report using TTA at test case level or test set level. We are looking for PDF or Word execution report for each test case executed using execution list. Currently we don't see any way of achieving this in TTA? Can you please throw some light on this in-case if we are missing something.

      Regards,

      Naresh.
