Process documentation Monitoring Transports  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

The aim of your development work is to introduce new or improved functions into the production system. As a project manager, you therefore want to be informed about the transport of your requests into subsequent systems, and particularly about any transport errors that occur. It is equally important that you know about any repairs made to your objects in a subsequent system, since the import protection for repaired object can interfere with subsequent transports.

For this reason, you can easily access an overview of your transports and repairs on the initial screen of the Transport Organizer.

The stoplight icons indicate transport errors (stoplight is red) or repairs including objects protected against imports (stoplight is yellow).

To access the overview of your transports, choose Transports. A hierarchical list appears with your released transports and their transport steps, grouped according to target system.

You can see whether the individual transport steps were successful or not from:

If you have activated extended transport control, the client you have chosen is displayed in the client-specific transport steps.

If there are faulty transports, analyze the cause of the error. The transport log contains information that may be useful. You can access the transport log by double-clicking the transport step.

When you have found out what caused the error and corrected it, you can give the request the attribute Error corrected. This action is recorded in the action log.

Even when transports have been performed successfully, check that they work correctly in the target system. After you have tested the functions in the target system, assign the request the attribute Tested.

To make the display easier to read, you can delete the requests from the display after the transport. If the request deleted from the display is imported into another SAP System, it is automatically shown again in the display.

Displaying Transport Logs for Your Own Change Requests

If you display your released change requests in the request overview of the Transport Organizer or in the request editor, you can display the transport logs from here by choosing Goto ® Transport logs.

Displaying Transport Logs for Any Change Request

When you display individual requests in the Transport Organizer, you can display their transport logs by choosing Transport logs. To do this, you need to know the number of the change request. Alternatively, you can enter another user name in the initial screen of the Transport Organizer and list this userís released change requests. Position the cursor on a change request and display its transport logs by choosing Goto ® Transport logs.
