Post Upgrade Tests(PUT) Enhancements
The 2111 release has 2 key features: ability to trigger and track PUT on their own which enables our customer to better analyse the whole PUT process.
- Ability to re-trigger PUT and better tracking
In some cases PUT process might not not be able to process due to system deadlocks. We have now provided an option to re-trigger PUT in such cases. The tracking of the complete process also has been enhanced with progress bars, and info on start and end time for all the steps.
- Additional Recommendations in addition to Failure Category
To enable better understand and handle errors which come up in test execution, in addition to the Failure Category we have also introduced Failure Help which provides steps to resolve the error. This is supported by a Error Log Classification(ELC) service in the backend. Please note Failure Help might not be available in all cases.
In addition to these we have also enabled filtering of PUT scripts based on the Application area (Sales, Finance etc..).

very informative blog ravikanth, i have a question, the tool is a public cloud offering but most of our clients are on private cloud, so is there any way to use this tool and make it work on our client's environment which are private cloud ?
All the tiles in fiori library are on Software Component Version - SAPSCORE 127 - SP 0000, is there a way these tiles can be used on S4CORE 106 - SP 0002 ? i see the odata services don't exist for these tiles on S4CORE software component.
Thanks, currently the SAP S/4HANA Cloud Test Automation Tool in available only for the public cloud and it can be accessed the Quality system by adding the appropriate role to your business user.
These tiles cannot be used for SAPSCORE106, as currently the software version maintained is SAPSCORE128.
