Description

Micro Focus Connect Core is a data synchronization technology that provides data and relationship synchronization between products across the software development / DevOps lifecycle. It is available as a utility (Micro Focus Connect Core) free-of-charge to all Micro Focus customers to be used to synchronize data with Micro Focus products, only.
Customers must have an active support and maintenance agreement to be entitled to use MF Connect Core.

Connectors allow organizations to share up to date information across their DevOps applications and teams, giving them visibility and traceability across applications without the need for custom scripting and individual integration maintenance.

A number of connectors come pre-packaged with the base utility (Micro Focus Connect Core); other connectors must be downloaded separately (this page as well as MF Connect Core Connectors).

This Marketplace page contains the SAP Solutions Manager Connector for Micro Focus Connect Core.
This connector has been designed and validated to exchange SAP SolMan data with ALM Quality Center and ALM Octane. Data synchronization with other Micro Focus products supported by MF Connect Core is also possible.

This version allows access to the following SAP SolMan artifacts:

  • BPH (Business Process Hierarchy)
  • ITSM (specifically: ITSM Incidents)

Enabling the integration between SAP Solution Manager and Micro Focus products requires three (3) components which all need to be deployed for the integration to be functional.

  • Component 0:
    Micro Focus Connect Core - the base utility required to make use of this SAP SolMan connector.
  • Component 1:
    Connector for SAP Solution Manager (this component, to be deployed into an existing MF Connect Core installation)
  • Component 2:
    SAP Solution Manager Add-On (available as a patch download on sld.microfocus.com for customers of Octane or ALM/QC, to be deployed into SAP Solution Manager)

Component 1:
Micro Focus Connect SAP Connector which integrates with the SAP Solution Manager Add-On (component 2) for the purpose of data access.
The components which will be deployed within the Micro Focus Connect environment are the contents of the archive "SolMan.zip".
The contents of the archive are to be placed in a subdirectory of the "connectors" folder of an existing MF Connect Core installation - for example: "C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Connect\AppData\connectors\mfcConnectorSolMan".
