In this document, I will explain about the transports.

  • Transports help in moving the structure from one system to another system
  • Transport request is created in transaction code SE01

Note: With transports, we can move only structure but not data

Steps to create transport request number:

  • Go to SE01
  • Click on ‘Create’ icon
  • Select ‘Workbench Request’ radio button (we can select any one of the following radio buttons depending on the situation)
    • Customizing Request
    • Workbench Request
  • Click on ‘Continue’
  • Give short description
  • Click on ‘Save’

Note: Every transport request number will come with a sub-task

Steps to assign structures to a transport request number:

  • Go to tcode RSA1
  • Go to ‘Transport Connections’ section
  • Search for the required object (with technical name)
  • Drag the object to the right side window
  • Select any one of the grouping techniques from the drop down
    • Only necessary objects
    • In data flow before
    • In data flow afterwards
    • In data flow before and afterwards
  • Give the collection mode as ‘Collect Automatically’
  • Select the object and click on ‘Transport Object’ icon
  • Give the package (other than ‘$tmp’)
  • Click on ‘Continue’
  • Select Own Request or Create Request
  • Drill down to subtask and select ‘Continue’

Grouping Techniques:

  1. Only necessary objects:

We can collect the required objects in a transport request number

   2.  In data flow before:

All the objects that send data to main object are collected

   3.  In data flow afterwards:

All objects that get data from main object will be collected

   4. In data flow before and afterwards:

All the objects are collected in this case

Steps to see transport request number:

  • Go to tcode SE09
  • Select the ‘Request type’ and ‘Request Status’ (either Modifiable or Released)
  • Select ‘Display’

Steps to release transport request number:

  • Go to tcode SE09
  • Select the ‘Request type’ and ‘Request Status’ (either Modifiable or Released)
  • Select ‘Display’
  • Select the subtask
  • Click on ‘Release Directly’ icon
  • Select the main task and click on ‘Release Directly’ icon

Note: The transport request number should be in released status for importing into another server

Steps to import request into next server:

  • Go to the target server
  • Go to tcode ‘STMS’
  • Click on ‘Import Overview’
  • Double click on the ‘System Name’
  • Select the transport request number
  • Click on ‘Import Request’ icon

Steps to unlock a transport request number:

  • Go to SE03
  • Give the transport request number
  • Select ‘Execute’
  • Select ‘Unlock’

Note: If a transport request has objects, first unlock the objects then delete the transport request number. (First delete the subtask the delete the main task)

Best Practices:

  • Collect all the structures in a single transport request number
  • Collect all the transformations in another transport request number
  • Collect all the DTP’s into another transport request number
  • Collect all the reports in one transport request number

Note: If we change the existing object, delete the data from the target table then move the transports to the target server
