Function documentationScheduling Tool


To execute the operational activities for distributing software in your system landscape, Change Request Management provides a scheduling tool. This tool is based on the Schedule Manager.


You have made the required settings in Customizing under Start of the navigation path SAP Solution Manager Next navigation step Capabilities Next navigation step Change Control Management Next navigation step Schedule Manager End of the navigation path.


You can use the scheduling tool (transaction /TMWFLOW/MAINTINST) to perform the following activities:

  • Process project and maintenance cycles for performing your development and maintenance tasks (for regular maintenance)

  • Process implementation, template, and upgrade projects

  • Display and change the status of maintenance cycles, and implementation, template, and upgrade projects

  • Distribute software within maintenance cycles

  • Distribute software changes of ABAP and non-ABAP objects (for example, Java archives)

  • Analyze maintenance cycles, urgent changes, and implementation, template and upgrade projects

  • Create new task lists for urgent changes

    You can create a task list for an urgent change directly from the scheduling tool. Note that this task list neither has a connection to a change document on the WebClient UI, nor to a project cycle. You can only use it for processing task lists in the background.
