Missing SAP DCs after creating an NWDI track by using the Configuration Wizard


I've run the configuration wizard "DI Change Management Service (CMS): Create an Application Skeleton" on a BPM runtime system (NW 7.31 SP06) to create an NWDI track for my BPM project. I accordingly chose the "BPM application 7.3" configuration template to set the needed dependencies and to copy the necessary SAP SCAs to the NWDI track.

When I tried it the first time the SAP BPEM software components were empty. They didn't contain any DCs. So I imported them manually into the NWDI track.

Unfortunately this track got corrupted when checking in the first sources. So I deleted the track in the CMS, all software components and products in the SLD and all repositories in the DTR.

But when running the configuration wizard "DI Change Management Service (CMS): Create an Application Skeleton" again not only the BPEM SCs are empty but all of the SAP software components. None of them contains any DCs.

I don't want to manually add all the missing SCAs to the track as this is what the wizard is made for.

So what's the problem with this wizard? What's going wrong?

Any ideas?

Best regards,

    Hello Robert,

    this is perhaps a misunderstanding. When you run that wizard, it creates only the track configuration (a.k.a development configuration), and not the content. Meaning it adds your custom software metadata and all the dependant SCs that are having build time dependencies. I believe this is why the the wizard refers to application skeleton and configuration template.

    After that the SCs have to be checked in Transport Studio of CMS (Check-in tab), and have to be Imported into development and consolidation. Once it finished succesfully you can start your NWDS and import the corresponding Development Configuration. Else the SCs will be displayed as if they were empty because it only sees the track config itself (created by the wizard) and no DCs will be displayed inside since without import in cms webui, basically there is no place to sync from. Once in cms webui each SC imports finished succesfully , and you restart NWDS, then you will be able to sync the DCs since this time the buildspaces are filled up.

    I hope this helps.

    Best Regards,
