Steps to transport HANA content from source to target system using LCM

Hello All,

SAP HANA Application Lifecycle Manager is a stand-alone tool that can be utilized to transport content from Source system to target system.

There are three ways to move objects from one HANA system to another (manually, using LM or CTS+ using Solman), this documentation only describes  transportation of content from source to target system in regards to Life cycle Management.

To do tasks:

  • Create a package and assign it to a delivery unit in the source SAP HANA system.
  • Create a transport route in the target HANA system
  • In the source SAP HANA system, create an analytic  view  under the  package
  • Transport the delivery unit (which includes the analytic view as content) from the source SAP HANA system to the target SAP HANA system.
  • Check your transported analytic view in the target system.

Create a package in the source system and design an analytic view


Once your analytic view is ready create a delivery unit and assign this package to it. To create a delivery unit click on the delivery unit name on the Quick launch screen



Now choose create delivery unit button and fill up all the required details in the below screen


Once  a delivery unit is created assign the above created package to this delivery unit by selecting ADD


Logon to HANA Lifecycle Management through XI:



Click on Transport tab  and create a source system by clicking on register button


Fill all the required information such as hostname, XS Engine port


Click Next


Now choose ’Maintain Destination’:

This will bring you to the XS Application admin screen (if the screen on the left is empty, you leak authorization).


Once you are done with maintaining the credentials in the XS admin screen,  go back to the Transport/System screen and finish the configuration.

When you select the SID and do a ping now, below should be your result:



Now you can configure a Transport route:


Once you select a Source system, you will get all available Delivery units from this system.

You have the option to set this route up as default FULL/DELTA or without default (without default will prompt during the transport creation)


Once you completed this setup, you can run transports for objects under this delivery unit under Transport – Transports by clicking the Start Transport Button:


You can also monitor the status in the Home screen:


Finally you end up with a message – “Transportation Successful”
