Component documentationChange Control Management


This process controls changes in all projects (such as implementation, template, or upgrade projects) in a comprehensive workflow. You create requests for change, edit them if necessary, and implement changes. You can perform the change request management activities across technology stacks and application components.

The administration of the change control comprises the following measures:

  • Change and Transport System and Enhanced Change and Transport System

    Allows you to distribute software changes of ABAP and non-ABAP objects (for example, Java archives)

    You can use the central Change and Transport System (central CTS) with Change Control Management. For each new project, you can decide whether you want to use CTS or central CTS.

  • Quality Gate Management

    Provides a phase-based overview of the status of your software change projects. The project phases end in quality gates. By releasing a quality gate, the import lock is removed and an import into subsequent systems is possible. As long as a project is in the initial status, no changes and transports can be created.

  • Change Request Management

    Allows you to process your projects universally in SAP Solution Manager: from change management and project planning, through resource management and cost control, to the physical transport of the changes from the development environment into the production environment.
