Cloud Application Lifecycle Management: create feature from requirement

Introduction

In this Blog post we will describe, how it is possible to create Feature, connected to a Requirement and which phases it will have in it´s lifecycle then. The steps are described for the CALM solution, connected with SAP S/4HANA Cloud 3SL landscape.

Create requirement

To start the process we need “Requirements” app. There we need to select correct Project and click Create -> Requirement:

Enter requirement Title and Description:

Below you can assign test-cases to the requirement:

 

You can add external references:

 

Assign necessary attributes and save:

Once the requirement is created, it can be approved:

 

Create feature

Once the requirement is ready, we can move to feature´ creation:

For the feature we need to enter following information:

Then Save and Close.

Once you are done with the feature creation, it is bounded to the requirement:

It is possible to have several features for the requirement.

Feature lifecycle

Now let´s click on the created feature. This will lead us to the feature screen:

We can assign there transport(s) to the feature:

The possibility to assign several transports to the one feature is provided, in order to follow dependencies, which feature could have with other functions/customizing items. The feature itself will be located in one transport request.

Once the feature is ready, we can Start Implementation:

Afterwards we get possibility to Deploy feature in Test system:

Once the deployment is started, we need to wait, until feature is deployed in Test system:

Currently it is necessary to update deployment status manually:

Once the deployment to Test tenant is done, we need to Approve the feature for the deployment in Prod tenant:

Now we can deploy it to Prod tenant:

Update the status and check, if the feature has been deployed:

As the last step we Confirm Deployment:

If we go back to the “Requirements” app we will see “Deployed” status for the feature there as well:

Conclusion

In future releases of CALM, deployment orchestration-related functions will be extended further, what enables usage of CALM actively not only from organisational, but from orchestration perspective as well.

      Great blog Alexander Korneev. This will certainly help customers and partners for their project related activities and manage them for their landscapes in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
