BRF+ Transport Issue’s when we move BRF+ applications from Development system to SIT/UAT/Production

BRF+ Transports fails with errors then BRF+ application inactive in target system.

Issue Explanation: When we import BRF+ application using transport from Dev system to SIT/UAT/Prod if transports imported with return code 12/8 then in target system that BRF+ application will be in active.

Then we have two options to fix issue

1. Using FDT_HELPERS tcode we can re import failed transports then it will activated BRF+ application in SIT/UAT/prod


2. Create new transport with BRF+ application and import to target system if new transport import successful into target system then it will activate BRF+ application in Target system.

Here I am covering first option next blog I will cover second option

Step 1:

Please prepare transport before release


Step 2:

Then Release Transport in Source system


Step 3:

Please inform Basis to run import job to target system

Step 4:

Check transport import log

Tcode: SE01

Provide your transport and click on Log Tab


Step 5:

Transport fails with return error code 8


Step 6:

Open BRFPLUS workbench and check BRF+ application it will be inactive mode in target system


Step 6:

Login into target system and Open FDT_HELPERS tcode in target system


Step 7:

Expand BRFplus –  Transport


Step 8:

Select BRFplus: Transport phase Execution


Step 9:

Click on Execute


Step 10:

Next you will see below screen


Step 11:

Provide your transport like below and select radio button After import Processing then click on Execute button


Step 12:

It will show you result is successfully generated BRF+ application in target system

      Running this report may not solve the issue always. But even if the issue is not solved, it will show the error messages that you can check and analyze. The same error messages can be found in transport log.

      Use FDT_TRANS_MASS_CHECK to analyze and correct Before Export problem (Source System)

      Use report FDT_TRANS_Q_RESTART to restart the after import processing for all yet not activated transports.(Target System)

      Use report FDT_TRANS_MASS_CHECK to search and classify meta data content inconsistencies.

      Use report FDT_DCONV_0012 to fix inconsistent entries of the transport queue, is there is any.

      Also, try to analyze the TR log from SE09 or log in STMS.

      the report FDT_DCONV_0012 is not part of the FDT_HELPERS transaction. It is linked to note1387939 (which references some other notes). So I would handle that report with care as it is not part of the official collection of helper reports.

      Thanks for our comments Anindya.

      As i mentioned in above blog this is just one option if this option is not resolving issues we have to go with option which you mentioned. Soon i will post that option as well.

      Once again thank you very much for your comment.

      Better yet... move to DSM and avoid transports all together... 🙂

      Yes Dart, You are correct but, Some of clients is not using DSM so  we have to use Transports.

      Hi Mariel,

      can you please ask that question as a question in the Business Rules Management Space. The Comments on a blog are not really fitting for this kind of request

      Hi ,

      I’m facing an issue with BRF plus application transport movement. Can any one please help me in this.

      My issue is I have created a BRF plus application for one of my change request for the first time and when I’m trying to move the transport to quality system BRF plus application is not getting created.

      I’ve tried to add the objects to transport using FDT_TRANS report also but still application is not getting created.

      I’ve observed that entries of table USMD213C_SSW related to my change request got missed from the transport.
