Important hint:Please note that the information in this wiki is related to SAP Solution Manager 7.1. Since Janaury 1st, 2018, this product version is not in mainstream maintenance anymore (see implications here). The information here therefore is not maintained or updated anymore and is only kept for reference purposes.
Efficient planning, reporting and operation of your SAP solutions requires clear and reliable documentation for these solutions. The documentation of your system landscape and your business processes in SAP Solution Manager is the basis for the additional usage of the comprehensive Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) functions provided by SAP Solution Manager. The documented business processes are used in many ALM phases, for example in the Implementation phase by the Template Management, in the test environment by the test workbench and the Business Process Change Analyzer (BPCA), or in the monitoring environment by the business process monitoring. Therefore, up-to-date documentation of your core business processes is a basic prerequisite for realizing the full potential of the SAP Solution Manager.
Automatically generate a structured process step library based on usage data with the report from SAP note 2061626.
Information on how to create End-to-End business processes from a created process step library can be found in this PDF document.
Reverse Business Process Documentation (RBPD)
RBPD is not anymore recommended as the preferred method for initial solution documentation. Please refer to the section "Automated Blueprint Generation" above to find more information on the preferred method.
