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:
All the test management activities are managed in SAP Solution Manager:
- Test case preparation
- Test planning
- Test execution
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.
