Background documentationSolution: Full Transfer of Client-Specific Data for SAP GTS


This migration solution is applicable to the migration of data from an SAP GTS system. With this migration solution, you can migrate the following types of data:

  • Transactional Data: SAP TDMS transfers all transactional data from the sender system to the receiver system.

  • Master Data and Customizing Data: SAP TDMS also transfers the complete set of master data and Customizing data.


You can carry out data scrambling in the sender system after selecting the data and before transferring the data to the receiver system.

SAP TDMS copies the data selected for transfer to a data cluster and scrambles the cluster data before transfer.



This migration solution includes the following phases:

  • Package Settings

    In this phase, you make certain technical settings such as assigning logical system names in the receiver system, excluding user-related data from data transfer, specifying scrambling rules, selecting additional customer-created tables for transfer and so on.

  • System Analysis

    You execute background activities that prepare the migration objects for transfer and generate programs for data deletion.

    You confirm your settings so that they become effective for the data transfer.

  • Data Transfer

    In this phase, you execute the final checks before data transfer to ensure that no significant changes have taken place in the repository of the sender system while your SAP TDMS project is running.

    SAP TDMS deletes existing data from the receiver client and starts the data transfer. You can lock the users in the receiver system so that no changes take place during data deletion and data transfer.

  • Post-Transfer Processing

    In this phase, SAP TDMS makes a few post-transfer settings in the receiver system such as adjustment of number ranges and adjustment of Business Workplace tables.

    If you had set a lock on users in the receiver system during data deletion, you can unlock the users now.

    You can additionally clear the temporary tables filled during the data migration in all participating systems
