Setting Up a Namespace for Development
As soon as you have reserved the namespace at SAP and obtained the namespace license key for your SAP Systems you can enter the namespace. When you do this, the validity of the license is checked.
Use the maintenance view V_TRNSPACE to maintain the namespaces. To do this, you need the authorization S_CTS_ADMIN.
To maintain the namespaces, proceed as follows:
- Go to the Transport Organizer (transaction SE09).
- Choose Goto ® Transport Organizer tools.
- Go to Administration and choose Display/Change Namespaces.
- To maintain the namespaces, choose Table view ® Display ® Change.
- Confirm the information box.
- To enter new namespaces, choose New entries.
- Fill out the fields as follows. Save your entries each time.
The screen Display View "Repository Namespaces": Overview appears. Only those namespaces relevant to you appear in this maintenance view.
Detail maintenance appears.
Enter the namespace ID that you have reserved. It begins and ends with a slash ("/") and has a maximum length of 10 characters.
- Namespace role
Keep the default "P" if you want to develop in this namespace. The role of the namespace can have one of two values:
- "P" (producer)
Originals are created when you create objects. Choose this setting in the development system of the namespace owner to enable development work if there is a valid development license key.
- "C" (recipient)
Choose this setting if the namespace (namespace entry and the objects in the namespace) have been imported into this system. You can use the functions installed with the import. You cannot develop in this namespace in the SAP System. You can make repairs if you have a valid
Enter the 20-character development license key given to you by SAP for your development system. You cannot transfer development license keys to other SAP Systems. Instead you need a new key for each installation number.
- Repair license
If you enter the 20-character repair license key given to you by SAP for your namespace in your development system, then it is imported into all subsequent systems, unlike the development license key.
In subsequent systems you can allow repairs by setting the namespace role to "C".
Repair license keys are not installation-specific. The namespace owner can deliver the keys or pass them on for solving errors if there are any serious problems.
If you do not want your repair license key to be delivered to a third-party, delete the repair license key before the delivery export.
- SSCR popup
This flag is only relevant to SAP namespaces (repairs require an object license key). You cannot set this flag in a customer system.
- SAP standard
This flag is only relevant to SAP namespaces (standard SAP applications handle objects in a standard SAP namespace differently to other namespaces). You cannot set this flag in a customer system.
- Only gen. objs
This flag is only relevant to SAP namespaces (namespace reserved for applications that generate objects). You cannot set this flag in a customer system.
- Last changed by
You cannot fill out this field yourself. It is automatically filled with the name of the user who is making the license entry.
You cannot fill out this field yourself. It is automatically filled with date on which the namespace is entered.
- Short text
Enter a short text for the namespace. You can include the following information:
- Purpose of the namespace
- the product developed on the basis of SAP applications
- the SAP components developed in this namespace
Enter the namespace owner registered by SAP.
Your changes are recorded in a change request. When you transport this request into all subsequent systems, the namespace will also be transported. If there is a repair license, this is also transported. However, the development license is not transported.
