Hello,

you can include digital signature feature in eCATT , its just anohter screen.

But make sure the password you enter in the digital signature pop-up is a generic password as others can see the log and identify the password.

Thanks & Best regards,

Ajay

Can you elaborate on your requirement ?

Digital signature functionality would be configured through SPRO and it is just another screen for eCATT while recording.

TCD mode would be a better mode for recording such a scenario.

Hi Can you please explain your comments. I want my scripts to be signed off after reeviews with a digital Signature. Currently its been tried with Sol Man feature of Digital signatures. Its mostly for a process oriented feature or compliance with certain norms.

Hi Justin,

The following is my understanding now:

You would like to have digital signature functionality to eCATT scripts/configurations for approvals/signatures to satisfy the formal procedures/norms.

Is this right ?

Well the solution, I gave before was for a scenario recording which involves digital signature functionality.

Let me investigate in your requirement and revert back to you ...

Till then .. keep fingers crossed

HI Justin,

I am afraid I cannot be of much help either as it very much seems like SAP has not extended the digital signature functionality besides it's current support for approvals of test documents and notes in the test management domain.

To be able to use this function:

SAP Solution Manager -> Scenario specific settings -> Implementation -> Document Management -> Digital Signature & Document status

Please note that there is a 'catch' here which might be of help to you : Manual test cases of type - 'Test document' can also use this feature.

I did not find any customizations possible for automated test cases like eCATT

I, myself, am not in a position to try this feature and let you know.

However, if you are interested in the document, please revert with your email id so that I can mail it to you.

Byeeee!

Hello,

Even i was under the impression that you are talking about process specific digital signature.

But however just try this option of recording. Now that you know the solution manager system . Just check if its a portal application or the R/3 system.

If its the portal application then eCATT system has come limitation.

If its R/3 application then you will have to create an RFC and the SDC which connects to the respectively Solution manager system , then try recording your procedure.

Thanks & Best regards,

Ajay

Hi Ajay,

I think what Justin wants is not the procedure to connect a Solman system with a eCATT system ( Test System)....

Justin, as far as I believe, is looking for approval workflows which can be attached / configured to ecatt test scripts/configurations.

Approval workflows in the sense - something like (In progress -> Ready for review -> Reviewed -> Approved) through digital signatures!

Please correct me if I am wrong Justin....

Thanks!

Yeah Prasad... You are right. I tried the Sol Man workflow thing. Seems a bit long and not as smooth as i would wish it is.. Anyways.. Looks like the digital signature option in sol man is the only thing to be done.

Thanks Guys

Do you want to keep this thread open Justin?

Yes, because even after i implemented the solution advised. We are not able to add Test Configurations directly for the digital signature feature in sol man. I am a bit astonished at this but however i hope there could be a customizations for that as well.

The feature is not aimed at test scripts / configurations but is only provided for test documents and notes.

Instead of approvals, you can probably use STWB_WORK for tester specific worklists and STWB_2 for test plan management.

As a test manager, one can assign test packages / test cases to testers from STWB_2

As a tester, one can look into one's assigned work from STWB_WORK

Note: Test notes can be attached at test case level and as mentioned before, digital signature feature is provided for the same.

So, this should resolve your norms.

No Prasad,

I am looking ata typical process compliance perspective. The need is to digitally sign the test scripts. The testing aspect is by default taken care.

The only solution as close as possible for your process compliance is to configure digital signature functionality for your test notes as these can be attached at test scripts level.
