/UI2/TRANSPORT Used by the SAP Fiori launchpad designer to read and assign transport request

You maintain services in Customizing for SAP NetWeaver Gateway:

  1. To activate a service in Customizing, choose Start of the navigation path SAP NetWeaver Next navigation step Gateway Next navigation step OData Channel Next navigation step Administration Next navigation step General Settings Next navigation step Activate and Maintain Services End of the navigation path.

  2. To add a service, choose Add Service.

  3. Select your system alias, then select a service from the table above.


The page building services use the UI2 cache to optimize performance. If data created or modified using these services is transported, the cache must be invalidated in the target system. This does not happen automatically in SAP NetWeaver 7.0 and SAP NetWeaver 7.0 Enhancement Package 1. Invalidate the cache by executing report /UI2/INVALIDATE_GLOBAL_CACHES.
