For download information, see SAP note 2363258 . There you will find the content package for SAP Solution Manager as JSON file for direct download and import into SAP Solution Manager 7.2 (at 2. Further SAP Best Practices Solution Packages). Further technical information about this package: BP_SOLMAN consists of BOM.130 (JSON file) only.

As it has no Process (Scope Item) definitions in the internal Best Practice tools nothing more can be shown in SAP Best Practices Explorer. So only the pre-selection of the package is possible (via S-User). This has the (small) benefit to be shown in the local SAP Solution Manager to start the physical import from there.

Please forward this announcement to whom it may concern.
