One aspect of software change management are transports through a system landscape. The basic idea is that you use one system for creating content, another one for testing and on a third one the content is used productively by the end users. The challenge is now to make sure that the content created on the development system is available on the QA system and that after testing exactly the tested objects become available on the productive system.
The change and transport system (CTS) is also able to handle Java transports. In this example, you can learn how the process of transporting portal content changes if you are using CTS.
As a starting point, two portals are available. C01 is used for creating portal content, XS1 is the QA portal and there are other portals in the landscape that we summarize under the SID ETC.
Take a look at the videos that are linked in the graphic below for step one, two and three.
The requirements video (step 1) shows the initial situation. C01 contains some content that is missing in XS1 – so a transport would be necessary. In the Design or Build video you can learn how to configure the portal landscape in the CTS. In addition, the video shows what has to be configured on the development portal to enable transports via CTS. If you take a look at the test video as well, you will see CTS in use for a portal export.
CTS can be used in a very similar way for other applications like PI or SLD. So if you use CTS you will have one tool that supports a big variety of transports, one central place for monitoring transports and viewing logs.
For more information on CTS, take a look at the Change and Transport System 
…and turn on your sound before watching the videos. There are a lot of explanations on CTS

    Hi

    I am using transport proposal for the approval of NON ABAP transport.  But approving the transport proposal for NON ABAP transport does not move the transport request into the next target landscape.  How do we achieve this?

      Hi,

      please take a look at note 1404710 which contains a correction for this issue. Please not that you should only use this tranport proposal option for non-ABAP if you are already using inf for ABAP as well

      Kind regards
      Karin

        Hi Karin

        Thanks for your reply.
        When I try to access the SAP Note 1404710, it gives me an error “The requested SAP Note is either in reworking or is released internally only”.  Could you send me the note? 

        Regards

            Hi Karin

            Thanks for releasing the note.

            I read through the note and I had some queries.

            Some extract from the Note 1404710

            Creating the transport request:
            1. Log on to the ABAP system in which your non-ABAP system is managed ( = communication system).
            2. Call transaction SE09.
            3. Choose “Request/Task -> Display Individually..”
            4. Specify the required non-ABAP transport request.
            5. Choose “Utilities -> Create Transport Request” to create a transport request.

            For the above steps, do you means to create transport proposal rather than transport request?

            For your kind clarification…

            Thanks.

            Regards

              Hi,

              setp 5 should say
              Choose “Utilities -> Create Transport Proposal” to create a transport proposal. Sorry, a little translation error.

              Please resepct the limitation that only customers using the transport proposal option for ABAP can do so for non-ABAP as well

              Kind regards
              Karin

                Hi Karin

                Thanks for your wonderful prompt reply.

                Yes, currently we are using transport proposal for our ABAP system.  We are planning to use the transport proposal for the NON ABAP system (Portal).

                A final question :

                Would there be any impact to the existing ABAP transport workflow or the existing ABAP transport landscape if we apply the SAP Note?

                Thanks.

                Regards
                Mike Lee

                  Hi,

                  applying the note shouldn’t have any impact on the ABAP workflow. The correction enhances a statment so that the workflow can be used for non-ABAP as well

                  Kind regards
