Collecting Information for Migration of “Non BW” objects across landscapes in SAP BW
Purpose of documet:
This document provides details on tables to be referred and procedure to collect information related to Non BW objects (like includes, tables, methods, class etc) for transporting across different landscapes in BW (Dev to Quality to Production in a typical business scenario)
To collect information related to webdynpro objects, go to Table WDY_COMPONENT to get the list of the Webdynpro Components
Go to Table WDY_APPLICATION to get the list of the Webdynpro application, Component, view names in detail
To refer any other details – Webdynpro tables starts with WDY* in SE11.
2. Transaction Codes
To collect information related to transaction codes, go to Table TSTC & get the list of Transaction Codes.
3. BPS Objects:
Step 1: Get the list of planning areas from UPC_AREAT
Step 2: Run the program UPC_TRANSPORT_BPS_ALL
Specify the option as “Full Transport” and provide planning areas we got from step 1.
It is always advisable to go for Full transport as BPS contains lot of dependent objects (Planning Levels, Packages, Formula Extensions (FOX), Variables, and Planning Sequences) and by choosing the option selective transport would result in non-collection of dependent objects under request. The objects will be collected as table entries under customization request
Drawbacks / Pain points / Suggestions for improvement:
The standard program accepts only one planning area and we can enhance this program (Create a custom program) to accept multiple planning areas to expedite the transport of BPS applications.
