Getting started with Figaf and SAP CPI

This presentation I’ll show how you can get started with the Figaf IRT tool. In the 28 minute video you can see how to configure everything to get the Figaf tool to work.

The tool guides you thru all the steps involved with creating a platform that allow you to run DevOps for SAP CPI.

In the presentation we cover how the following topics

  1. Register for Figaf. Just Go to Figaf.com/IRTCloud
  2. Add agents for your SAP CPI systems
  3. Create Landscape
  4. Create Test case and also run it with the mocking of the endpoints.
  5. Create Ticket for change
    1. Track changes
    2. Test
    3. Transport and configure
  6. Create Monitor
  7. Create Alerts

If you open the video in youtube you can see timestamps for the different parts.

It is possible to go into much more details on each element. The purpose of this video is to give you a broad understadning of what the tool can help with and ensure you have everything configured.

Signup here.

You can signup at IRTCloud

You can also run the tool in your own laptop with our downloadable tool. You can find it at IRT. The process is the same. You just need to download and run IRT from your PC.

Setting up the Figaf Migration Tool

I have been creating a lot of webinars where I showed how the Figaf tool could do for migration. Here I always had a scenario configured that I could use for the migration. I have never shown how to configure the full setup.

How is Figaf tool different from SAP Migration tool. The goal of the Figaf migration tool is to support the migration process. This includes managing the process of the migration, testing the changes, and then making sure everything is configured correctly.

I got asked how to configure the solution and use it. This is what this video is about. To show the process end to end.

  1. Download and run Figaf IRT
  2. Add Agents (PI systems) and synchronize
  3. Create Landscape
  4. Create System Mapping
  5. Create test cases
  6. Create Release
  7. Run migration
  8. Run development

You can see the video here. It takes 33 minutes. And everything is in one go. From download to running your first migration.

It would be possible to spend a lot more time on the testing part where the Figaf tool can help out in a lot of different ways. The goal of the presentation is to show the steps involved.

Since it is mostly all in one take, there is some configuration that is giving some challenges. There is a lot of configuration that you need to do, my hope is that it gives you some idea of what is necessary. If you run into the problems you can ask for assistance for the configuration.

Limitations: The Figaf tool does not support migrations of dual-stack objects, here SAP tool has an advantage. The Figaf tool does support fetching messages from your 7.1 system, where SAPs test tool only supports 7.31-7.4 with some support packages.
