Function documentationCritical Transport Object Checks

 

During the change and transport process across your solution landscape, there might be objects which have special importance to your core business processes. Improper modification to those objects may result in serious business impact to the whole solution’s stability. Therefore, it is required to have a strict monitoring and administration mechanism to better control those objects’ change and transport.

Before transport requests are exported from the development system, you can activate a check to determine whether they contain critical transport objects, which require approval before they can be transported. This check can be activated both on system and client level. While a transport request is being exported, the source system and the source client are determined. If the transport object checks are active for the relevant client of the source system, the export program checks whether the transport request contains critical transport objects, or sub-objects of critical transport objects. The export does not take place if the transport request contains critical objects but has to be approved by the change manager.

Before transport requests are exported, you can perform a check to determine whether they contain critical objects which require approval before they can be transported. This check can be performed on both system and client level. While a transport request is being exported, the target system and the target client are determined. If the transport object checks are active for the relevant client of the target system, the export program checks whether the transport request contains critical objects, or sub-objects of critical objects. The export does not take place if the transport request contains critical objects but has to be approved by the change manager.
