Copying the CRM Web UI configurations from one CRM release to another

Hi All,

This is a question valid only for development within SAP Labs. I just hope that someone might give some idea on how to solve my issue.

Issue :

I have created about 50+ CRM web UI view configurations( object type DLCS ) for different views in CRM 714 release. Now I need to copy these configurations into CRM release 713. The standard copying tools like SCWB, UDO do not support copying of the DLCS objects. I am left with the option of manually recreating these 50 configurations in 713 release again.

When we do a transport of the request that contains DLCS objects from a dev system to a test system, the configurations are automatically copied into the test system. Which means there is a way in which the configurations are moved from one system to another without any manual activity. So there must be a way that allows me to copy the configurations from the 714 release to 713 release system without manual recreation of configurations. Note - there is no transport path from the 714 release to 713 release.

If you have any ideas about how this can be achieved do let me know.

    Hi Karthik,

    IMHO transporting the configurations would be the simplest approach.

    You mentioned that there is no transport path from the 714 to the 713 system. However, you don't need a transport path to perform the transport. What you need to do is to copy the tarnsport files, which are located in a specific directory on the application server (SAP Basis team will know the exact path), form the 714 to the 713 dev system. There you add the transports to the import queue manually and import them.

    The only issue I see with that approach is that you might have used ion text elements in the configurations which are not available in the older release. Configurations for which this is the case will be inconsistent. Therefore, you need to check all the configurations using transaction WCF_CC after importing the request.
