You have probably been annoyed by the fact that you have to use the maintenance optimizer and create a new transaction because you need to approve a single file you want to download from SAP Service Marketplace. I understand the functionality of the maintenance optimizer is intended to be used for change tracking but what if you already have change management implemented outside of Solution Manager and you just want to download the file?
It’s possible without \ the maintenance optimizer and I’m not inventing something new here, I didn’t “find“ this. One of my colleagues showed a shortcut a while ago and recently I noticed some forum entries on the topic as well.
There was also a comments on one of my other blogs about the dreadfulness of having to go through maintenance optimizer to approve a single file.
Just recently I blogged about What if? Stepping outside of your comfort zone. Giving advice to other people and not following my own advice would be a bad thing. So I tried out a new What if? By creating my first Youtube video for this blog. My voicing skills might not be great yet but I think it still beats showing a bunch of screenshots.
