Test Impact Radar (0043) analysis can be used to highlight what top level SAP objects (e.g. Transactions, programs, etc.) are impacted by the selected transport(s). For example, if a database table structure was changed it could be used to identify all transactions and programs that use that table to help target testing effort.
It can also indicate what Test Scripts are impacted by the changes in the transports if these have been uploaded into ActiveControl. I.e. identify what test scripts should be executed at a minimum as a result of the changes contained in the transports.
It can also be linked to Production Usage Statistics to provide a more focussed indicator of impacted objects, and also optionally used to identify objects that are not mentioned in an organisations library of Test Scripts.
Note that there is some pre-requisite Object Linkage setup that needs to be performed for the Test Impact Radar analysis check to run correctly. Please refer to ‘Test Impact Radar’ section of this Administration Guide for details of this setup.
