With the March 2018 monthly release of Cloud Platform Integration customers have the option to transport Integration Packages across Tenants using Cloud Based Transport Management Service which has been released in Beta mode as of March 2018. For further details about this service please see official documentation at Transport Management Service. The capability to transport using Transport Management Service is in addition to the transport option supported via CTS+. Please see blog for details on transport using CTS+.
This feature would be very useful for you under the following situations
- You have two or more Cloud Platform Integration tenants example test and production.
- You would like to design and test integration content only on the test landscape and move this later on to your other Tenants.
- You would like to manage the transportation of content centrally with clear responsible but at the same time do not use the SAP CTS+ On Premise solution OR would like to use a Cloud based Transport Management Service.
In such a situation this new transport feature enables you transport the integration package from the test to the production landscape.
The existing mechanism of transporting using manual export and import and CTS+ continues to be supported.
