CTS Package and Transport request

Hello experts,

I have questions on CTS package and transport request. I need to transport InfoObjects, Info Sources, InfoProviders, Tranfer Rules, BEx objects etc. These objects are transported first time ( not tranported before).

My question is

1. Do I need to create a package whenever I am transporting the objects first time or can I use some existing package and create a transport request?

2. Do I need to create seperate package for BEx objects?

I would greatly appreciate your input.

Thanks

Sri

    Hello Sri,

    At our company, we create a different package for each module much like we did in R/3. We do this to assign responsibility to objects. For our BEx transports, we have created a separate package for each InfoProvider. The reason for this is that when a query is changed, it is automatically put into the request that was created for the package that was originally assigned to it (after the initial transport). This would mean that to release a change request, all queries assigned to the request would have to be ready to move up to the QA system together. If you have all of your queries in the same package, they would all have to be on the same release schedule after the first transport.

    I'm not sure that you know this but once a transport for a query is released, you should immediately create an empty transport for the query package so that BEx has a place to put any further changes. You can do this in RSA1 under the Transport Connection button and then choose the icon with the truck and BEx.

    Hope this helps,

    Diane

      Hi Sri Vani

      I would suggest following-

      1. Create only 1 for all Infoproviders, infosources, ODS (Non-Bex objects).

      2. Create another packaege (only 1) for all Bex objects.

      The reason behind suggesting you 1 package each for Bex & Non-Bex objects is maintenance of the objects and packages itself.

      If you create 1 Bex package for each infoprovider then over a period of time you will have like 50-60 packages only.

      Regarding maintenance of requests, SAP has provided enough options to us so that we can delete/assign user to requests.

      My opinion is based on my implementation experience and I found it simple to use.

      Regards

      Pradip

    You could use same package for all request numbers or for easy maintance you could create one for Objects like Infocubes/ODS/Infosource basically for all administration workbench activities and another for Bex Objects.

    Hope this helps

      Sat,

      Thanks for your immediate reply.

      When you say create one for Infocubes/ODS/Infosource basically for all administration workbench activities, you mean to say for every set of Infocubes/ODS/Infosource I need to create one. In other words say I created one for FI-CO Infocubes/ODS/Infosource, Do I need to Create another package for FI-GL or Logistics Infocubes/ODS/Infosource for easy maintenance or can i use the one created for FI_CO?

      Thanks a lot

      Sri
