Transporting Application component hierarchy – RSA9

Hi Friends,

This document deals about how to collect and transport Application Component hierarchy (RSA9) at ECC side.

Application Component hierarchy – provides Tree wise structure which is provides by SAP, where each node holds its own SAP given standard datasources.

RSA5 – Standard SAP business content Datasources

RSA6 – Active Datasources in Source system.

Here to get active datasources in proper hierarchy, we required to activate Application component hierarchy using RSA9.

All the readers who are going through this document might know above details and along with above details I am focusing on How to transport Application component hierarchy to further Quality and Production system.

If you don’t activate or if you don’t transport Application component to further QA system, the application and its further related datasources will assign under UNDESNOTCONNECTED. ❗


In general for first time datasources activation at ECC system, it is mandatory to install Application component hierarchy using Transaction RSA9. Then standard applications and its Business content datasources will assign under proper node.

Let’s see how to collect Application component.

Go to SE03

Select Change Object Directory entries, under Object directory tab.


Assign Object type DSAA and object APCO_MERGED in given areas as shown below.



Here you will find object is collected under Local object ($TMP)


Change and collect into proper Package.

Then transport it to further systems.

Hope this document helps you.

      There is one Typo-Mistake in the documet, Instead of Transaction Code ST03 you require to type SE03 to collect Application component.

      Basic but really important setting to remember when working on a fresh system.Thanks for giving a walkthrough on the same.

      Regarding the transport mechanism --Wouldn't that truck icon can be used for collecting it ?

      Hi Anshu,

      Thanks for your Feedback.

      Coming to your query - You dont get option @ RSA9 transaction. Once you option RSA9, system will ask you only -  pic 8 new.PNG

      Once you Select for Yes. Then -

      So, you dont  get option to collect object here.Thats the reason I choose above method to collect object.

      Thanks again.

      Hi Vijay,

      Good one. some time back I was searching for it in a green field implementation.

      My doubt is, when we execute RSA9 for first time, won't it ask for Package?

      will it always goes with $TMP by default?

      HI Ram,

      Thanks for your Feedback.

      Yes, It wont ask for Package. Object APCO_MERGED will store in $TMP and need to collect it into TR.

      Regards, Vijay
