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.
Thank you for mentioning the transport option for PD objects and the very detailed screen prints.
I migrate my catalog via an LSMW. Very often it is not turned off and data is transported or added to a transport request without the consultant knowing why.
So I turn the transport mechanism off and migrate the QK, Q and their relationship to the system of my choice.
Rhmove* are nice tools but if you want to migrate in different phases and test the migration it is much easier and takes no time to use the LSMW functionality.
You are correct Klaus. LSMW is another option that implementation teams can look at.
