SSTA (formerly SSCM) includes SAP infrastructure monitoring and business data in Splunk enterprise operational intelligence analytics (both on premise and cloud version of SAP) alongside with other enterprise components.
Connects multiple SAP Solution Managers with Splunk instance.
Ability to connect to SolMan instances with granted permissions (See Configuration and SAP Prerequisites sections).
Discovers each SAP Solution Manager metrics and including into Splunk monitoring.
Customization of usage of existing metrics by including meaningful or excluding less important details from the monitoring.
Ingests monitoring metrics into Splunk ITSI.
All the metrics chosen for ingestion will be instantly shown up on ITSI side. Predefined SAP metrics will be appropriately interpreted on ITSI side.

Before deploying the app, you must ensure the following:
Your system landscape has been set up for SAP Fiori.
You have activated the required OData Services ( AI_SYSMON_OVERVIEW_SRV to retrieve the system overview list and AI_SOLMAN_SYSMON was used for retrieving data from Solution Manager 7.2.)
Authorization settings are required to be set in the SAP Fiori launchpad and to fetch data using relevant OData services, see the SAP Solution Manager Security Guide. For a quickstart in dev, you may assign SAP_ALL role, but this is dangerous for production.
Addon requires Splunk kvstore to be operational on the instance that it is deployed on. Make sure that it is not disabled.
Addon is designed to store obtained data within metrics index. Create a metrics index on your indexer(s) (for example called solman_metrics).
In distributed deployment option (see option 2 below), on ITSI environment, create a user that has the capabilities to create ITSI service via REST interface.
There are two options for addon deployment: standalone ITSI server and distributed option.
Versions 1.0.0 and 1.1.0 support only the first option.
Versions 1.2.0 and above support both.
In standalone ITSI option, the addon is installed on the same Splunk instance that also has ITSI REST interface.
Here the ITSI Splunk instance must have direct network connectivity to SAP OData interface (be within organization's security perimeter).
The first option does not work well for ITSI in Splunk Cloud or other distributed environment when ITSI instance can not or should not access SAP instances directly.
In that case, install the addon on a Splunk Heavy Forwarder that is close to SAP instances.
It will forward all collected data to the Splunk indexers and create corresponding ITSI services using ITSI REST interface.
Install the technology addon on either ITSI instance (option 1) or on Splunk Heavy Forwarder (option 2):
Log in to Splunk and go to Apps > Manage Apps.
Click install app from file.
Upload the app package file and click upload.
On the host having the addon deployed, Add a modular input
Set the index to a correct value. On the host having the addon deployed, edit $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/sap_solman_app/local/inputs.conf. Find the stanza for the created modular input and set (in case if the relevant metrics index name is solman_metrics), index = solman_metrics.
Restart Splunk application for the settings change to take effect.
Configure the metrics to be collected. On the first invocation, modular input populates solman_metrics key-value store collection discovering all the systems and metrics available on SAP Solman. On the host having the addon deployed, go to Solman Configuration Dashboard. Click on the button corresponding to the SAP system to be configured. Click on the sliders to enable or disable metrics collection. Once done, click on green Save button. Please wait for the Solman data to refresh before it gets into Splunk index (may take several minutes).
Navigate to ITSI Service Analyzer dashboard. You will see the data from the configured system
Use the troubleshooting dashboard within the app.
