Changes to LTMC

Dear SAP Friends,

Welcome to another interesting topic “Changes to LTMC” in SAP S/4 HANA 1909 Version.

When I Started exploring 1909 HANA I started finding many changes like Cosmetic, Screen layout and etc..

If you are new to LTMC and its Steps then refer

1. LTMC for Material Master:-

2. LTMC for Business partner (Supplier) :-

So I will be sharing with you all the changes which I found only Sceen changes noting related to process  in 1909 when compared to 1809
In this Blog will see about LTMC (Legacy Transfer Migration Cockpit)

The first and most important change is

1809 Version 1909 Version
Migration Objects – 69 Migration Objects – 85

When every new version releases new Migration objects are being introduced now with the latest version of 1909 we have 85 Migration Objects

Screen layout changes

In 1809 once we start transferring file we see below screen

When it comes to 1909 screen layout and look and feel looks very interactive with Status of Project

In 1809 Options / Switches are placed in Top Left corner

When it comes to 1909 Options / Switches are shifted to the bottom right side
like other Fiori Apps, Look carefully because we are familiar with top left side from past 3 versions/years

In 1809 we have Table Selection menu in Mapping Values Steps as shown below

when it comes to 1909 we don’t have that if you click blank space all line items will get selected or unselected
SAP might think to reduce one step ?by removing selection option

Above Stated are my observations, Please share observation which you have identified in LTMC


Please share, Like and Comment anything else you want to share or add points.

Thanks & Regards

      Hi venu gopal

      Data Validation and all Steps like

      A. Upload File
      B. Activate
      C. Start Transfer
      D. Data Validate
      E. Convert values
      F. Simulate
      G. Execute Import

      Remain same but they are Screen changes like Screen options from left top to right bottom
      Status pop up in left bottom once see blog clearly.

      Or else experience by your self by comparing 1809 and 1909
      as I'm following HANA from 1610 onwards i can feel minute changes also 😛

      Thanks for sharing but your screen shots are not clear , hence can't understand / see the correct changes which you mean to say , but if you ask me I don't see any changes in LTMC .

      Hi Saikat sen

      As I replied to Venu and also in my Blog starting there are only screen changes.

      To See by your self Login to 1909 LTMC and see for your self because I Cant add detailed images because images get reduced once I add or zoom screen to 175% and see the images I added to understand exact difference

      Hi Ruthvik Chowdary

      As I can see all the changes are screen changes only nothing to do with functionality is that correct?

      Hi Ruthvik

      Just now we upgraded from 1809 to 1909 on primse. I read some document that from 1909 the LTMC would be migrated to Fiori App. But when i execute i could not the differences as Fiori. More over when i checked the url it shows only webdynpro component only. Still its not migrated to Fiori?. We have upgraded to very lasest pacakge so its not possible we could not get that.

      I am right or wrong in this point?. Can you throw some light on this.


      Thanks and Regards

      Hi Ruthvik,

      is there a way to trace the log files for source XML file whose data is already loaded successfully ?

      I have observed that for successful conversion load, there is no provision to go back and check the log files. It would have been helpful to check/ trace back the documents posted for particular Source XML file.
