Working with Transport of Copies (With Screen Shots)

In this document, I will take you through the steps to create transport of copies and I will show you how to import them to the next server

If you want to make any changes to the description of a transport request that is already in ‘Released’ state, we do go for ‘Transport of Copies’ option

Consider a business scenario where you have a description for transport request number is incorrect (It is as per the naming convention in your project. For Example, you have given the description as ‘Changes related to Info cube ZSD_001’ instead of ‘CHG001 Info Cube ZSD_001’ where CHG001 is the CR number of the development)

The BASIS consultant will not agree to move the transport request to the next server because of its incorrect description and we cannot change the description directly as it is in ‘Released’ state. So, we need to create a new transport of copy with correct description and collect the objects of previous transport request number and release it

Follow the steps as shown below

Go to development system (SAP BI):

  •   Go to tcode SE01, click on Create icon


  • Give a short description, target client name as shown below
  • Click on Save button
  • Select the newly created request and click on ‘Include Objects’ icon
  • Give the main task number of the transport request for which you want to create the Transport of copies and click on ‘Copy’ () icon.


  • Select the transport request number and click on ‘Release Directly’ () icon


  • Observe that the transport will be in ‘Released’ sate

Go to Quality server (SAP BI Quality):

  • Go to tcode ‘STMS’
  • Click ‘Import Overview’ icon
  • Double click on ‘Target System’ and select the transport request number and click on ‘Import Request’ () icon
  • Go to ‘Options’ tab page and select ‘Overwrite Originals’ check box and click on ‘Continue’


  • Click on ‘Yes’
  • Observe the logs
