Export Transport Request to Cofile & Data File

I have been requested to export a transport request without releasing it as an ABAP program scheduled to run every 5 minutes audits the transports, check the dependencies and import it into other systems in the landscape. the exported transport needs to be sent to the customer.

    Hi Syed,

    You can't, a transport does not produce the cofile and a datafile until the request is released.

    If its just a program, you can simply copy the code and create the program in the target system, you will need a developer key tho :)

    Regards, JP

    Hi Syed,

    While I'm not completely clear of the full scope of what you're trying to achieve, there is a way to export the objects of a transport without releasing the transport itself. It's a process known as "transport of copies," and it's frequently used as a way of getting incremental changes to a development into a test system for unit testing without requiring a full release of the transport, and without gumming up the works in your STMS QA Approval and production imports with bunches of small, incremental transports for a single change.

    There are a bunch of blogs about various practices utilizing this concept: https://onedx.find.sap.com/s#t=transport%20of%20copies&n=1&p=default&repo=srh&f=TYPE%3Ablog.

    And, lots of questions and discussions about it, too.

    Cheers,
    Matt
