Guided Procedures Usage

The Guided Procedure Logbook in SAP Solution Manager provides an overview over executed guided procedure instances  for selectable time frames. It can be started either from the entry screen of the Guided Procedure Management application for one system, host or database. The Guided Procedure Logbook is also accessible from Guided Procedure Catalog for one system , host or database and for the selected guided procedure type. It will show all executed  guided procedure instances for the selected scope that were started  in a selectable time interval.

Log Book Structure

The Guided Procedure Log Book is structured as follows:

  • The header section shows the selected managed object scope. The selected time frame is by default the last seven days . You can change the time frame here.

  • The statistics section shows how many guided procedure execution instances have been
    • Executed with error
    • Executed partially
    • Executed completely and without error
    • Created but processing has not yet started in the selected time frame for the selected managed object (and for the selected guided procedure type if started from Guided Procedure Browser). You can also select or deselect status here so that for example only guided procedure execution instances with error will be displayed.

  • The guided procedure list below shows all guided procedure execution instances last accessed in the related time frame.  Shown here are status, version of the guided procedure, time stamp of last access, processor, which managed objects were involved in the guided procedure and the comment the processor entered when processing the complete step. Depending on your authorizations you can also continue to process a unfinished guided procedure execution instance from here or start a new one.

  • The step overview allows to drill down to the steps of the selected guided procedure execution instance. It provides information about status and log messages of the executed steps of the selected guided procedure execution instance.
