Accessing Component Information for systems connected to Solution Manager
We currently aggregate system component information for our ABAP systems through the following manual (and tedious) process:
Log into each ABAP system
Menu: System -> Status
Click Component Information button (magnifying glass icon)
Retrieve the information: Component, Release, Level, Support Package Name, Description.
Recently, we were drilling through Solution Manager Root Cause analysis -> Change reporting and noticed that this information is available for each system. In the ABAP-Software data store. This led us to consider if this information is contained within the Solution Manager BW cubes.
However when we looked at the SMD Change Analysis (thinking this would map to what we saw in the Change Analysis reporting), we didn't see this information.
So, the question is, does anyone have any thoughts were the Component information for systems is stored in Solution Manager? Ideally, we would like to tap into this source for our own custom report as opposed to retrieving it manually from each system as I described.
