Exporting Blueprint / Business Processes from Solution Manager


I am fairly new to SAP Solution Manager. And I am keen to understand how easy it is to extract the Business Processes and flows (Blueprint ?) from Solution Manager to external document for the purpose of review and documentation. Is there any examples people have of the format ?

    Solution manager is a tool which supports you throughout the entire lifecycle of SAP project. Business blueprint being a vital phase of any SAP project, Solution manager can facilitate this also in a very efficient way. I am putting below the steps for generating a BBP using solman.

    In a Business Blueprint for Projects, you create a project structure in which relevant business scenarios, business processes and process steps are organized in a hierarchical structure. You can also create project documentation and assign it to individual scenarios, processes or process steps. You then assign transactions to each process step, to specify how your business processes should run in your SAP systems.

    The Business Blueprint is a detailed description of your business processes and system requirements. You can print it out.

    Once you have created your Business Blueprint (project structure, documentation, transaction assignments), you can create the Business Blueprint document for approval or further use.

    You can choose between general and project documentation for a template project. You can integrate general documentation into the Business Blueprints, for example to deliver it in a global rollout.

    You can only put the project documentation in the Business Blueprint document for the other project types.

    Prerequisites-You have adjusted the layout of the document to be generated to your requirements, in Document Management in SAP Solution Manager customizing, if required.



    1. Start the Business Blueprint transaction.

    2. Select Business Blueprint ® Create Blueprint Document.

    3. Choose what is to be in the Business Blueprint document:

    General tab:

    ○ In a template project: General or Project Documentation

    ○ Scenario or business process graphics (from Graphic tab)

    Scope tab

    ○ Selection from project structure

    The system only puts structure element documents in the Business Blueprint document which you have selected explicitly, and its sub-structure elements. The system only puts the higher-level structure elements in the Business Blueprint document, but not their documents (tooltip Node Selected Automatically).

    To put documents of higher-level structure elements into the Business Blueprint document, choose the higher-level structure elements explicitly (tooltip Nodes Selected Manually).

    ○ Selection from documents, e.g. only documents to which you have assigned specified keywords

    Display Options tab

    ○ Details of structure elements and documents, e.g. document name and person responsible

    ○ Link to reused document or repeated use of it in the same Blueprint document

    4. Choose a download directory.

    The system loads all documents which are to be put in the Business Blueprint document, into this directory.

    5. Choose Execute.

    Your text-processing program starts.

    6. Start the MS Word macro SAP_BUSINESS_BLUEPRINT.

    To make this Business Blueprint document generally available in the SAP Solution Manager, upload it with Upload in the Project Documentation tab. Set the document to Not Business Blueprint Relevant to ensure that it is not included in the next Business Blueprint document.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any other information.

    This is very easy.

    I hope you have created a project in SAP Solution Manager Transaction# "Solar_Project_Admin" and then you have created a blueprint for whatever the project. Let us say you have created a implementation project for ECC 6.0. And in Transaction# "Solar01" you have created a blueprint (Business Process Structure for ECC6.0) from Business Process Repository

    Now how to copy the process and flow given against the specific business processes or nodes:

    1. In Transaction Solar01 select the tab General and select the document and click on the 'Copy' icon. It will ask to link or to creat a copy of it. if you select copy it will let you updated in the next tab related to project specific tab. of documentation.

    The very simple and best way is to select whichever the business process or flow diagram you like and copy it and past in word document and save locally. Then upload the same document in the project specific tab of document in Transaction Solar01 or Solar02

    I hope it will work. If you got what you are looking for then please close this question

    I would like to know if there is any option to generate the BBP of a Template/Model project and an Implementation project in the same MSWord?

    I have a Template project and 6 Implementation projects and i would like to have all of them in the same document instead of having to generate one BBP for each.

    I would like to find a solution other than to have to create a new project with all the information (template and local projects) in order to be able to generate one unique Blueprint.

    Thanks a lot
