Early Watch Reports

Is there a way to create a dashboard of the early watch reports so that management can see at a glance a stop light view without viewing all the reports?

    Hi Joe

    It should be possible, never attempted this but here one idea on how you could go about this.

    You can include EWA ratings in Technical Monitoring - System Monitoring scenario. Metrics that are in Technical Monitoring can be stored into SAP BI (by default embedded BI on SAP Solution Manager itself). You can flag a metric in the monitoring template in terms of having it store data in BI.

    on SAP Solution Manager 7.2 you can create your own KPI dashboards and KPI tiles (Fiori KPI tiles) which can take a BI query as input. So you could then create queries against that EWA rating data that is stored into BI from the Technical Monitoring scenario.

    I'm pretty sure there are other options available such as custom coding and reading out the values of EWA out of specific tables or something in those regions but the above "idea" or "option" can be achieved without coding.

    Best regards

    Hi Joe

    Maybe I'm overthinking this hehe :) looking on SolMan 72 you actually already have an overview of systems + EWA + rating when you click on the SAP Earlywatch Alerts Fiori tile

    Quick example from a development system (not much EWA in here just yet, just one with a gray rating) but this overview would perhaps already give you what you are looking for.

    The KPI dashboard with KPI tiles is more of a challenge though. You can also use code to display values on KPI tiles by the way so you could also fetch the rating from a table using a piece of custom code and link that to a KPI tile and create a "tiled" dashboard as an overview.

    Best regards
