Procedure documentationCreating Transport Tasks


You want to create new transport tasks for an existing transport request. This may be necessary, for example, if additional developers need to take part in the development, or if old tasks have already been released.


  • A task list exists whose status is Active.

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

  • A transport request has been created for your user.

    Note Note

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

    End of the note.


You can also execute this task from within a change document, on the Transport Management assignment block. In this case, a dialog box appears where you specify a transport request, and the users who need a transport task in this transport request; you do not navigate directly to the task list.

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

  1. Call transaction /TMWFLOW/MAINTINST.

  2. Select the tab page for the relevant project type.

  3. Click the task list for which you need to create new transport tasks.

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

  5. On the screen that appears, enter or select the request number and the names of the developers for whom you want to create new tasks.

    After the transport tasks have been created, the task list is displayed again.

  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, new tasks have been created in the specified transport request for the specified developers.
