Function documentation Display Trace of Incoming Distribution Requests  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


The trace display displays all logged procedures in the system which were called by Customizing Distribution. It supports troubleshooting if a customizing distribution failed.


Various Customizing Distribution analyses can also help you to identify errors.


All procedures which are called by the Customizing Distribution in the SAP Solution Manager system, are logged by trace.


With the trace display, you can:

      see all distribution requests received in the SAP Solution Manager system

Distribution requests arise when customizing has been changed in the source system and written into a transport request. The SAP Solution Manager system checks whether these customizing changes are also relevant for target systems in a project.

      display Customizing Distribution logs which have been created for a transport request in a source system

      display source transport requests to a Customizing Distribution

The trace display includes the following data:

      Transport request

      Customizing Distribution source system

      Time of distribution request

      User who made distribution request

      Number of customizing objects changed

      Number of target systems into which customizing objects have been, or are to be, distributed

      Last Customizing Distribution action or error message




       1.      Start the trace display with Goto Trace Display in the Customizing Distribution log menu.

       2.      Find the transport request whose customizing distribution you want to check, in the display.

       3.      Check whether the Customizing Distribution is flagged as successful.

       4.      If there is a log for the transport request, double-click on it.

       5.      If there is no log, display the last action in the system, or the error message in the overview, and check possible causes of error.

If no log has been created, no customizing was distributed. This can be because:

-         Customizing was changed in the source system, but the change is not distribution-relevant, because, for example, the customizing objects are not in any synchronization group.

-         The Customizing Distribution found no target system.
