Procedure documentationCreating Transport Requests


You want to create a transport request in the development system where your software changes have to be recorded.

Note Note

You can also create transport requests from within a change document in the WebClient UI, on the Transport Management assignment block. In this case, a dialog box appears where you have to specify users.

End of the note.


  • A task list exists whose status is Active.

  • You have been assigned the SAP_CM_DEVELOPER_COMP role in the SAP Solution Manager system.

    Note Note

    If you execute this task from within the task list, you must have been assigned the SAP_CHANGEMAN_OPERATOR role in the managed system.

    End of the note.


To create a transport request from within a task list, proceed as follows:

  1. Call transaction /TMWFLOW/MAINTINST.

  2. Choose the desired project type tab page.

    The system displays a list of the task lists whose status is Active (default setting). To select or activate task lists with other statuses, see Changing the Status of Task Lists.

  3. Click the project track for which you need to create a new transport request.

  4. Under the task node of the development system, select Create Transport Request, and then start the action by choosing Execute.

  5. On the screen that appears, enter or select the owner of the request you want to create and a short text for the request. You can also add developers to whom you want to assign transport tasks within this request. Select the type of transport request you want to create (workbench or Customizing request for an ABAP system, workbench for non-ABAP systems).

    Note Note

    If you do not enter these parameters, a request is created in the managed development system that contains your user as the owner, a single task for your user, and a generated short description.

    After the transport request has been created, the task list for the maintenance cycle is displayed again.

    End of the note.
  6. Check the status of your task. If you need more information about the task, check the application log in the Daily overview of the task list.


In the selected development system a transport requests (a workbench or a Customizing request) is created for the specified owner and developers.

Note Note

In the case of urgent changes, only one open workbench and one open Customizing request are permitted at any time.

End of the note.

The created transport requests are connected to the IMG-CTS project created from the project used in the change document and the task list. The transport requests are provided with the transport request attributes SAP_CTS_PROJECT (which contains the CTS project ID) and SAP_TMWFLOW (which contains the task list ID of your task list).
