SAP S/4HANA Cloud Test Automation Tool – 2202 Release Overview
Welcome to another edition of the release highlights blog for the SAP S/4HANA Cloud Test Automation Tool. As SAP S/4HANA Cloud moves towards delivering frequent innovations via the continuous delivery for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, test automation and its corresponding processes also need to evolve.
With the 2202 release customers have greater flexibility in Post Upgrade Tests(PUT) to create their own regression suite, and to test more frequently with the test scope of their choice. The new “Manage Upgrade Tests”(MUT) app allows our customers to add custom scope, de-scope unnecessary PUT automates, add relevant data variants, to the PUT regression suite. This enables customers to prepare a thorough regression automation suite, which is a combination of the standard delivered PUT automates and customer test plans, and run them as and when needed.
The new application has 3 main tabs:
- Execution List – This shows the list of all automates which would be considered for PUT execution before pre-checks. This can be a combination of standard PUT and customer test plans
- PUT Processes – List of all standard PUT automates which are in scope for the current tenant under test. Automates can either be added or removed from here.
- Customer Test Plans – List of all customer test plans along with the latest status. Customer test plans can either be added or removed from here
More details on the application can be found here.
The new re-execution feature introduced in the Analyze Automated Test Results(AATR) app, is meant for faster turnaround times in responding to failed test cases after a regression suite run. Features like “Failure Category” and “Failure Recommendations” provide the end user a quick and efficient way of grouping failures and taking action on them. The feature of re-execution of failed automates enables users to select a common failure reason and then trigger it again after the error has been resolved.
With these features we also move towards a more customer driven Post Upgrade Tests(PUT) process. Customers can now trigger PUT with the scope of their choice when critical software, content or implementation changes are being done. With the host of new features delivered as part of the AATR application customers can more quickly filter down to the failed automates which may cause an impact on the production environment.
In addition, PUT will now be run automatically immediately after the release upgrade, if the consent has been provided in the PUT tab.
We have added a few more additional features as well as part of the Test Data Container(TDC) and API Test Automation Framework
- Export Response from Multiple Records for API Test Framework
- Download/Upload of TDC via Microsoft Excel – Support to update data directly in Excel file
- Provision to define the TDC variant as default while defining the test process in MYTP app
- Option to map a TDC with relevant scope items
SAP Delivered Standard Automates
The total list of SAP delivered automated test scripts are 345 for 2202 and can be accessed via link – Automated Test Scripts Index”.
Further detailed change information about the standard automate is available in the “Automated Test Script Change History” and “Test Script Release Change Information”.
This wraps up the update on the new features delivered as part of the 2202 release for the SAP S/HANA Cloud Test Automation Tool. We also have the replay from the SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2202 Early Release Series available.

Does this Test Automation Tool is also avalaible for On Premise S/4HANA ? which release ?
As for S/4HANA cloud customer, customer with OnPremise version need to make to PUT or NRT !
Hi Louis Nicolas Arson ,
The test automation tool is currently only available for the S/4HANA Cloud Essentials version.
This is very helpful. Can this tool be used for SAP Successfactors upgrade as well or is there is any equivalent tool from SAP to cater the post upgrade testing of SAP Successfactors?
Thanks in advance.
Hi Sriramakrishna Rekapalli ,
Currently the tool is available only within the S/4HANA Cloud stack. We are not able to trigger similar upgrade tests for SF at this point.
I do not know of any equivalent tools within SAP which would allow us to trigger similar tests.
very informative blog, 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, I have addressed your question which you posted in Anurag Nayakblog here. Check my reply -
Does this Test Automation Tool is also avalaible for On Premise S/4HANA or RISE with SAP S/4HANA Private edition?
Dear Anurag Nayak
For the "older" 2-system landscape, the PUT was executed on the Q-System.
Can you tell me where it will be executed in the 2-system landscape? Will it be on DEV or TEST?
Hi Johannes Bacher ,
Even for the 3- system landscape the execution will happen in the TEST tenant.
