Synchronize SAP Solution Manager Library Objects to Symbio

This article will explain you how are SAP Solution Manager library objects synchronized and represented in Symbio and how are they relevant to the process synchronization.


Applications (Logical Component Groups)

Applications are the Symbio equivalent to SAP Solution Managers, Logical Component Groups. All the Logical Component Groups for the selected SAP Solution Managers Solution, will be imported in Symbio during the Linking process. After they are imported in Symbio, these elements are readonly and cannot be deleted or modified.

Best Practice Tasks (Process Steps)

All the Process Steps Originals from SAP Solution Manager are imported to Symbio by clicking the Synchronize SAP Step Library Objects to Symbio in the Processes architecture view, under the SAP menu. They are imported as Best Practice Tasks, and after the import they are readonly. Best Practice Tasks are connected to the Application, just like the connection between Process Steps and Logical Component Groups in SAP Solution Manager. Also if the Process step has a reference to an Executable, a Best Practice Task has a connection to Application service. Best Practice Task, can be connected to a Local or Global Task in Symbio. If a task is connected to the Best Practice Task, it will be synchronized as a reference to the Process Step, otherwise it will be linked to the Default Process Step Original.
