    Hi Harshmeet,


    Nice blog..

    But Giri, why would basis person do coding part. Anything that involves code changes or modification of PAR files need to be done by developer.

      Thanks for your short and clear information.

      Giri/Uday, guess there are some teams who use BASIS team for downloading and deploying PAR files. Hope Giri would have tried to mention it:)

    Hi Harshmeet,

    Good document for reference, but its more useful if you mention the Portal Version in header or in body, since Par files are not there in 7.31 and coding part also not the same. (taglibs on sap)

    But please don’t elaborate here, instead create a new thread for that. 😉 The comments-section of a document is not the right place for this IMO.

    Due to missing some files in the Landscape we faced the issue in Login Page and it got resolved after manually transported those files to the new landscape.

    Thank you
