SAP Fiori for SAP S/4HANA – SAP Fiori Rapid Activation: Transport from Development to Production systems
Relevant for SAP S/4HANA 2020, 1909, 1809, 1709
With the release of SAP Fiori Rapid Activation back in 2018, SAP provided a procedure to mass activate SAP Fiori Apps. The focus of the early release of Rapid Activation was to be used mainly in Sandbox systems for the discovery and explore phases of a project based on the Activate methodology.
Based on the positive feedback from multiple customers SAP now provides transport options for the task lists in Rapid Activation meaning you can use this procedure in your Development system and transport content to your after-Development systems like QA, Pre-PRD and PRD. By doing this you will save time and effort when activating SAP Fiori in your landscape.
SAP has provided a central note with information on how OData services activated through task lists in Development system can be activated again in the Production System: SAP Note 2886433 – Fiori Setup: Activation of OData Services in Prod Systems with task lists. However, we are aware that you may need additional guidance depending on your project status, hence, the SAP S/4HANA Regional Implementation Group (RIG) has created a brief document explaining the procedure to move content from your Development system to after-Development systems based on the following procedure:
- Run Rapid Activation in Your Development system with transport options active.
- Move Transports to subsequent system
- Run Rapid Activation with only a defined subset of tasks
By doing this, you will ensure your complete SAP Fiori landscape is active and configured with the same parametrization and the exact same content is available across your landscape.
You will find a detailed guide here: SAP S/4HANA Fiori Rapid Activation Transport Move To Production Strategy
Please note that for the described scenario we recommend defining a transportable development package and using this package while running Rapid Activation. Package reallocation is currently not covered by the task list but can be done manually through transaction SE03.
I’d like to thank my friend and colleague Van Vi for his dedication to create this document.
