In this Blog post I would like to explain

  • What is Global context that is used in SAP Cloud ALM

  • How to change Global context

Understanding Global Context

In SAP Cloud ALM , each application has set of filter criteria. As an example Task Management has Timebox, Workstream etc as filter criteria , whereas Test Management has Test Readiness Status as filter criteria. The filter selected immediately affects the results in the application.

There are however some special attributes which are used across applications. Currently the list of such attributes is

  • Project

  • Scope

When you open an application say Task Management , filter it for Project A and then open a subsequent application say Requirement management then Project A is automatically passed from Task Management to Requirement Management. This means changing of Project or scope in any application changes the Global Context for SAP Cloud ALM

Changing the Global Context

Changing the Global context is automatic. It needs no extra effort from the user. Whenever the user sets Project or scope in any application, the Global context for Project or Scope is set to last used values. As mentioned earlier only Project and Scope is part of the Global context.
