IRT 2.2 Release notes Testing of SAP PI, Cloud Integration and Changemanagement

Yesterday we release the IRT 2.2 to make testing even easier. This release contains a lot of new functionality that makes it a lot easier to test your system.

One of our visions is to make an all round change management tool that allow you to find errors, fix them, document the changes, and test it. We have added the first part of this which is to support the change management, this will allow you to document what is going on in the landscape.  So now we have a link form ICO all the way to message mapping. This will allow us to ensure that you test the interfaces before you make any release.

You can see the video for a presentation here.

 

Cloud Integration. We have now added the option to start testing SAP Cloud Integration (CPI aka HCI) . It is made possible by the new option to trace information so we don’t need to make modifications to your iflows to test it. We can do a regression test with the HTTP adapter now, and hopefully will be able to add some more adapters in next release. For other messages, you need to use the baseline testing, where you will be sending the same message again. We will add more functionality to this testing to make it easier to do regression test for all adapters.

Baseline test cases. This is to make integration with Workflow tools like HPE UFT that already creates a set of number of messages to the SAP PI/PO system. So instead of IRT is sending test messages the sending system is creating the messages. The test would then compare that the same messages are sent and compare that they are processed in the same order. This is also a function we are using when testing with SAP Cloud Integration.

Change Tracking Tool. In the change tracking tool we have added the ability to see all repository objects and what is changed. So you can see where in an object it changed, we will add the option also to do a comparison in UDF and Message mapping in a future version. The cool thing is that you now can see where a message mapping is used and in which ICO/iFlows it is used. This will give users the option to run test report that covers the things that have been changed. We still have to add a few links.

 

If you are ready to start testing your SAP PI/PO/CPI solutions better then have a look at the Figaf IRT tool that allow you much better testing.

IRT 2.0 released you can now test SAP PI/PO for free

Ever since I started with developing SAP PI/PO testing was a big thing. There has not been any tool provided by SAP for it.

Over the last two years, we at Figaf has been working on creating a testing tool for testing SAP PI/PO. We got some customers using it, and it is improving their operations. Both when applying support packs or when checking that their new transports work as expected.

I thrilled to announce that we now support a free version of our testing tool. I guess it is also kind of scary to give away something that has cost this much to develop for free. There is some limitation on this free version but you will be able to test some of your interfaces and ensure they work. You can only test 10 ICO(Integration Objects) and save 100 test cases.

IRT is a tool that allows you to collect messages from your productive SAP PI/PO system and then process them on your development system. This is the fastest way to create a validation that your scenarios work.

See a short demo of IRT below.

It is fairly simple to install and run IRT. Install an SCA file on the SAP PI/PO system, create a user and you are ready to run it.  You can get it working in 1 hour if you got the access required.

Download IRT today and start testing your SAP PI/PO systems.

It is a great honor that founder Daniel Graversen have been award the gold status of SAP community Network. The main parts of the points have been because of comments around the SAP Process Integration (PI) area. Now next goal must be to get to platinum status.
