Introduction


Software Update Manager (SUM) Toolbox is a new ABAP-based transaction that allows you to run certain tools and reports related to the various scenarios offered by Software Update Manager. Especially, tools required for downtime-optimized approaches are in focus of SUM Toolbox. Click here to get an overview of all downtime-optimized approaches. In the past, the tools offered now in SUM Toolbox were mainly shipped along with separate SAP Notes having Z-reports attached which needed to be created manually in the system. Providing now a central entry point via transaction code SUMTOOLBOX eases the way to leverage these tools.
