2653483 - SAP Solution Manager Content Activation from 7.1 to 7.2: migration of executable variants


For Content Activation of SAP Solution Manager 7.1 SOLAR content to SAP Solution Manager 7.2 Solution Documentation content, a migration mechanism for executable variants is not available.



In SAP Solution Manager 7.1, executable variants are available for some executable types (for example transactions or reports). Those executable variants in SAP Solution Manager 7.1 can be used like any other executable type (in the transaction tab, as a test object, as key for global attributes and object links).

In Solution Documentation of SAP Solution Manger 7.2, executable variants are not a preferred solution. However, on an executable Process Step level, Solution Documentation provides mechanisms to build Process Step variants in two different flavors:

  • Re-usable Process Step variants: In the Process Step library define multiple Process Step originals for the same executable original. These multiple Process Step originals can then be used to create de-facto-variants for the same executable.

  • Local Process Step variants: Within the end-to-end business process assign local properties (assignments and attributes) to Process Step originals thereby creating local Process Step variants.
