Configuring and Moving HANA Transports using LCM

There are couple of ways we configure HANA Transports and moving them across our landscape. This blog mainly concentrates on configuring and moving transports using HANA LCM.

Lets say you have DEV, QAS & PRD systems in your landscape and want to do developments in DEV and move it across the QAS & PRD systems. Below are the steps that you need to follow.

  1. Create technical user in DEV for Transport Management
  2. Enable Change management in DEV
  3. Register DEV system in QAS.
  4. Maintain Transport Routes
  5. Move Transports.
  • Create technical user in DEV for Transport Management

This is one of the first pre requisite that we need to follow. We need to create a user with the following previliges.

  1. HANA Studio -> security -> users -> create new user -> user name as “CHANGE_MANAGER”
  2. Assign Role -> 1. sap.hana.xs.lm.roles::Administrator 2. sap.hana.xs.lm.roles::Transport 3. sap.hana.xs.lm.roles::Execute Transport
  3. Assign System Previliage ->REPO.CONFIGURE
  4. Assign Packaage Previliage -> sap.hana.xs.lm.core.dest

❗ Ensure that user “CHANGE_MANAGER” should not have any password & user validity expriation.

  • Enable Change management in DEV

1. In SAP HANA studio, open the SAP HANA Application Lifecycle Management. or alternatevely, you can open the below link


2. Login into the above link and Choose the SETTINGS tab.

3. Select the Enable Change Recording checkbox.

  • Register DEV system in QAS

1. Login into your QAS system with the below URL


2. Goto Transport Tab and click on “Register”

3.  Enter Hostname : DEV Hostname,  XS Port: 80<nr> , Comment: DEV and then click Next

4. Click on Maintian Destinations

5. Select Authentication type as “Basic” -> Enter user name and password created at step 1.

6. Click on Finish .

This will complete the regestration of DEV in QAS.

Configuring Transport Routes & Moving Transports can be found in the below Blog.

      Hello Pavan,

      Thanks for the nice blog.

      Do you have insight on Transport Mechanism used for "SAP HCI-Process Integration" or is it the same as the above mecahnism ( LCM ) for HCI-PI also?
