SAP S/4HANA migration cockpit, direct transfer, migration object updates

Hello,

in the following slide you find detailed information on how to handle migration object updates.

Migration object updates can come into your system by:

  • a new release,
  • a feature package (FPS) or support package (SP) or
  • by a so-called TCI note (SAP Note transport-based correction instructions).

The updates are always first available in client 000 only and must be loaded to the current client!

If you experience issues with a migration object, for example issues with transformation rules, the outdated migration object (outdated content) might be a reason.

An object update does not change already existing projects with their assigned objects. In order to use the new content, you can either copy the updated migration object to your existing project (transaction LTMOM, create object from template) or you create a new project.

      Thanks for sharing Heike,

      I already experienced such issues after an upgrade... I had to create a new project from scratch.

       

      Cheers Marco

      Hello Heike, thanks for this Blog.

      There are a few Migration Cockpit TCIs that explicitly mention that the import has to be done in client 000 (e.g. 2887066, 2934928) but the majority of TCIs do not mention the need to import in client 000 (e.g. 2891712, 2904343).
      My question is, do all TCIs need to be imported into client 000 or only those TCIs where it is explicitly mentioned in the note?

      Thanks for a clarification.

      Kind regards, Tilo

      Hi Tilo,

      yes, all TCIs have to be implemented into client 000. I will notify the SAP note owners so that they will mention it in their notes. Thanks for your feedback!

      Best regards,

      Heike

      Hi Tilo,

      I just realized that the two notes you refer to are File/Staging notes!

      CA-GTF-MIG ( SAP S/4HANA Inhalt des Datenmigrationscockpits (LTMC) )

      They do NOT have to be implemented into client 000. I will give feedback to the colleagues that they mention explicitly the approach in the note.

      Best, Heike

      Hi Heike, I didn't distinguish my question between the transfer approaches as we currently use both file and direct transfer. You mean that generally TCIs for direct transfer need to go into 000 and the ones for file transfer not?

      Thanks, Tilo

      Hi Heinke,

       

      There´s is a risk if you implement the TCI notes in the productive system? In our case it´s a laboratory. I mean is a test system anyway

      Or the problem is that if we implement them only in productive system and not in 000, then the report CNV_PE_MC_LOAD_OBJECTS won´t get the corrections from 000?

      Hi Fernando,

      pls. implement the notes as it is mentioned in the SAP note instructions! If it says implement it in client 000, then pls. only implement it in client 000. The report CNV_PE_MC_LOAD_OBJECTS loads the updates into the templates in the respective client you work in.

      Best, Heike

      And the last one!

      For example in central note 2836748 for 1909, you have a table with several notes and then a sequence for a few notes:

      "Note : In the target system while implementing the TCI notes 2887066, 2934928, 2956015 you must ensure the follwing sequence:

      First Implement 2887066, followed by 2934928 and then implement 2956015. If the sequence is not followed it leads to inconsistent results."

      You need to implement the entire table, or with the mentioned sequence it´s enough?

      Thanks in advance!

      Fernando
