Understanding the business scenarios

Make changes to your test script if required.
What is Test Script (Scenario Testing)

Description
Field Data and actions to complete
Expected Results
Actual Results
TPR
Closing Period
F.19 Clearing GR/IR Account
F.13 Adjustments GR/IR Account
Using of these above two accounts will help us in clearing the balances and adjustments to those respective clearing accounts so that the GR/IR account will be zero balance and the balances will appear in respective reconciliation accounts accordingly the balances will be carried forwarded to next fiscal year.
GR/IR Clears the following Documents
GL Document
Customer Documents
Vendor Documents
Assignment Field is important in any document (ZUONR), Amount (DMBTR)
Foreign Currency Valuation
Lowest Value Method, If we are in loss then only we will account for it.
GL Accounts which are important in Testing
Enjoy Transaction   - FB50
Normal Transaction - FB01
Document Parking   - FV50
Post with Clearing   - F-04
Incoming Payment   - F-06
Outgoing Payment   - F-07

Reset Cleared Items   - FBRA
Parking Document Posting  - FBVO
Reversal Documents   - F-14
Company Code Clearing A/C
(Trial Balance purposes) reversal  -  (FBUB)
Clearing Account
Partial clearing Invoice  - 100 - Open Item
                           Paid  -   70 - Open Item
                       Balance -   30
In Partial Clearing you can see 100 and 70 are cleared line items and 30 as balance and if it is in Residual you can only 30 as balance as it creates new line item and you canu2019t see the other cleared line items.
As no company will use residual clearing as it affects on ageing reports.
Open Items in Foreign Currency in all Modules GL/AP/AR  - F.05
Master Data
Company Code
Currency
Only Balances in local currencies
Reconciliation Account Type
Year End Scripts
Re Grouping Receivables / Payables  - (F101)
Bad Debts Provisions u2013 Scripts
We assume that the customer has not paid at the end of the year you doubt whether this receivable will ever be paid. So you make a transfer posting for the receivables to an account for individual value adjustments using special GL Indicator E and Transaction Code F-21
Carry forward Balances
Sub Ledgers and General Ledger balances to be forwarded to next Fiscal Year
Accounts Payables
Vendor Down Payments
Invoice
Parking
Reversal
Outgoing Payments
Automatic Clearing
Manual Clearing
Advance (Down Payment)
Post with Clearing
Post without Clearing
Reset Clearing
Carry forward
Regrouping
Foreign Currency Valuations
Accounts Receivables
Customer Down Payments
Invoice
Parking
Reversal
Incoming Payments
Manual Clearing
Advance (Down Payment)
Post with Clearing
Post without Clearing
Reset Clearing
Carry forward
Regrouping
Foreign Currency Valuations
Other than that, it is important to know the following:
Unit Testing
When you test every single document is called unit testing.
String Testing
One transaction full activity is called string testing . For example Vendor invoice, goods received and vendor payment.
Integration Testing
It is purely with other modules and we have to check whether the FI testing is working with other related modules or not.
Regression Testing
Testing for whole database. Bring all the data into another server and do the testing is called regression.
UAT
When we test any particular document with the user and if it is ok immediately we have to take the signature on the document, which is signed off and can be forwarded to the immediate boss. There are some steps to be followed when we go for user acceptance testing.
Transaction u2013 Script Writing u2013 Expected Results u2013 Compare with Actual Results
TPR (Transaction Problem Reporting)
While doing the user acceptance testing if we get any problems then there are some methodologies to be followed according to the companyu2019s policy and normally as a tester we always need to write on Test Script itself.
Hope this helps you.

Rakesh

    Hi Dhanush,
    your authorizations will be decided depends on your role in your team.
    yes you will have authorization for creating name space ,but your bussiness system will be created by Basis pesron and assign it to your scenario.
    Business System is a logical entity which represents logical view of your technical system. (eg a client in R3 system can be respresented as business system in SLD) For one technical system you can have multiple business systems.
    Look in to these links for detalis of bussiness systems.

  • What are the username and password when i click the ICM of JavaEE5@SAP

    when i click the ICM of [email protected] in the sapmanagement console mmc, It need i input the username and password for Web_admin, What are the username and password when i click the ICM of [email protected] and which tools act the role as the VisualAdministrator of NetWeaver04s and NetWeaver2004s?
    thank you very much

    Hello Guoging,
    you can login to ICM with username Administrator and password abc123. That is described in the start.html file, which you can find in the unzipped Downloadpackage of SAP NetWeaver Java EE 5 Edition.
    You can use NetWeaverAdministrator(NWA) or config tool to configure this edition. NWA
    needs to be installed separately. If you have a default installation, go to
    C:SAPJP1JC00j2eeNWAdmin and execute the file install.bat. Ensure that NetWeaver is running, enter user Administrator und the Masterpassword you chose during installation and wait around 20 Minutes or more. NWA is started automatically after installation has finished in your webbrowser.
    For more information on NWA read the Administrationguide

  • What are the roles we have in XI ?

    what are the roles we have in XI ?

    Hi Durga prasad,
    HI
    XI Developer:
    Starts from technical specification
    Create design and configuration objects- execute unit tests
    Support integration/stress tests
    Document the developments
    Responsibilities for a support project :
    Responsibilities for a support project depends on Project.
    But in general u have to Monitor SXMB_MONI, SMQ2, SMQ1 & RBW for Error Message.If there is any error u have to find the reason of error.
    Then either u can resend it or u have to cancel it.
    In IDOC scenarios most of the time Error comes bcoz IDOC comes with blank values for required Fileds & then Mapping fails........... in such cases u have to cancel that message & tell R3 ppl to resend the IDOC.
    Then some times messages get stuck in queuesu have to resend them.

    <b>Can anybody tell me about XI.

    <b>What is SAP XI?</b>
    SAP Exchange Infrastructure is SAP’s platform for process integration based on the exchange of XML messages.
    1. It provides a technical infrastructure for XML based message exchange in order to connect SAP components with each other as well as with non-SAP components.
    2. It delivers business process integration knowledge to the customer in the form of SAP pre-defined business scenarios.
    3. It provides an integrated tool set for building new business scenarios by defining and maintaining all integration relevant information. (“Shared collaboration knowledge”).
    Before we take a closer look at how the Exchange Infrastructure will enter into the IT landscape of every SAP customer, let’s take a closer look at the capabilities as well as the strategic direction of XI. This particular module of Net Weaver is one of the most powerful and is undeniably the most critical. Its purpose is really three-fold:
    Connect:
    XI has the ability to connect all applications regardless of whether it is an application
    From a 3rd party or from SAP. The solution has pre-built connectivity to all SAP modules
    Such as SAP CRM and utilizes the Adapter Framework to integrate 3rd Party solutions
    such as Siebel, People Soft, Legacy systems, or AS/400s and Mainframes.
    Coordinate:
    XI has the ability to define a path/workflow for each business transaction that is
    Integrated. The system actively routes each message to ensure that it is properly
    Delivered from the source to the target destination. Active monitoring allows
    Administrators to manage document exchange on an exception basis.
    Communicate:
    XI has the ability to translate files into any format whether an internal file format or any
    Business to Business integration standard including but not limited to an XML format, an
    EDI format, a marketplace, or a Web Service. Finally, there are multiple communication
    Protocols included which allow the routing of a file over protocols such as s/FTP, http/s,
    SOAP, ebMS, Value-Added Networks, or EDI INT (AS1, AS2).
    Understanding The SAP Exchange Infrastructure_
    Now, you might be saying to yourself, we already have solutions that provide all of this
    Functionality. True, most organizations have invested previously in an integration strategy, but what we see in over 90% of organizations is that they have multiple translators and communication brokers, which they are supporting on a daily basis. This is both a resource drain as well as a monetary drain. For example, it is not uncommon to see the following even in smaller organizations:
    • Multiple Point to Point connectivity: For example, R/3 connected to a 3rd party
    Warehouse Management Solution via an internally developed adapter or with the SAP
    Business Connector
    • A 3rd party EAI Integration Broker to connect legacy mainframe systems to SAP and
    WMS
    • A 3rd party EDI translator to communicate messages
    • A 3rd party XML broker to communicate XML messages to marketplaces and non-EDI
    Trading partners
    • A communication server that focuses on sending messages via FTP, Value-Added
    Networks and Internet protocols such as AS2 solution of choice for SAP end users
    Interface-
    <b>Role of XI consultant</b>
    As a SAP XI Developer you will be required to : Gather requirements, develop specifications and technical documentation. Perform requirement analysis and high and low level design. Perform the coding, testing and integration mapping Interface with onsite / offshore project teams ,sometimes responsible for developing java applications based on clients requirement specifications, preparing the technical design document, creating prototypes, analyzing and identifying performance bottle-necks, providing technical and user documentation and training to client, providing relevant data to the Module Leader for status reports both.
    <b>It's a good option to switch to XI</b>
