Tip to transport the qualifications catalog
In many implementations, the transport option is not switched on for the qualifications catalog. Many a time, functional consultants create the quals catalog in the DEV, environment only to recreate them in QAS and PRD.
Here is a tip to transport the quals catalog:
In the customizing step Set Up Transport Connection (you can access it in IMG, by following the menu path IMG >> Personnel Management >> Organizational management >> Transport >> Setup transport connection), make the switch TRSP STOBJ “blank”.
The other values for this switch are T and X
You need to be cautious, when the switch is “ON”, you do not make any changes in the OM/PD components. Any changes you make, will be automatically recorded in this transport.
Now, when you create a new qualifications catalog (Q or QK), the system will ask you to enter the transport request.
Once you have completed creating the quals catalog, as a suggested practice (learnt from experience!), set the switch TRSP CORR to “OFF”. This will enable you to record transport for changes to OM or PD components.
I have found this to be particularly useful and efficient compared to RHMOVE30 or RHMOVE50 reports.
