Starting the Import of All Requests in an Import Queue
Requests that are released in the development system are marked for import into the target system, for example into the QA system (seeSystem Landscape). They are placed in the import queue of this system. The function Start import of all requests in import queue lets you import the objects of this request into the target system, or you can schedule the import to occur at a specific time.
After importing the objects into the target system, the requests are placed corresponding to the transport routes in the import queues of the delivery systems (for example, in the production system). You can start the import into these systems using this function after performing quality assurance tests (SeeTMS Quality Assurance).
You have chosen mass transports as yourtransport strategy.
To import all the ready requests, you need the authorization S_CTS_IMPALL. This authorization is in the profile S_A.SYSTEM.
To prevent change requests from being placed in the import queue shortly before the import, and perhaps being imported unintentionally, we recommend
Also read the notes onPrecautionary Measures in the Target System.
To import all the requests in the import queue:
Only requests with the import status Request waiting to be imported or the status Request is ready for import again are imported.
You cannot import requests that have the status Request must still be approved (see
You cannot start the import of requests that are currently being imported, or for which an import is already scheduled.
On the tabDate/deadline, you can specify when you want the import to start.
On the tab pageExecution, you can specify how you want the transport control program tp to start.
On the tab pageOptions, you can specify options for the import. You do not usually need to change the defaults.
The target client and the logon language are irrelevant here.
The system checks if you are allowed to import these requests (see
TMS starts or schedules the import in the target system.
After the import has finished, you can view theimport history to check the return codes for all import steps. You can also go to the corresponding transport logs from the import history.
