  1. Navigate to transaction se17. The General Table Display window opens.

  2. In the Table Name box, enter ECCUST_ET and press ENTER.

  3. The Display Table ECCUST_ET window opens and displays an empty table with the required parameter names.

    TOOL_NAME Unified Functional Testing
    TOOL_DESC Unified Functional Testing

    Note: You can also use the function module SET_EXTERNAL_TOOL to create entries in the customizing table. For details, see your Solution Manager documentation.

Apply necessary roles or profiles to Solution Manager-UFT Users

  1. Make sure you have permission to:

    • Run Solution Manager scripts

    • Edit Solution Manager scripts

    • Work with an external tool (UFT) in integrated mode

    • Connect to Solution Manager from an external tool (UFT) in standalone mode

  2. Confirm with your system administrator that the user name you use is assigned the necessary roles or profiles to perform the above tasks before you begin working with the UFT-Solution Manager integration. For example, to work with UFT in standalone mode, you must be assigned the role S_ECET or the profile SAP_ECET in the Solution Manager system. This is because each of these tasks requires special roles or profiles.

    For details, contact your system administrator or see your SAP and Solution Manager documentation.
