Transport of copies: How to handle deleted objects?

Hi all,

Is there a way to also handle deleted (or renamed) objects within a transport of copies?

I'd like to create a transport of copies of a new version of a small tool which should replace the previous versions. The works fine for all changed and new objects, but objects which were deleted in the source system will sill be present in the target system.

Is there any way to also include deletions of objects in a transport of copies, such these get automatically deleted (if existent) when imported to the target system?

Thanks for you help,

Christian

    You delete an object and are prompted for a workbench request. Following through, you now have the deleted object in the request. When you import it to another system the object will be deleted. If you don't release the transport, but create a ToC from it (or manually put the deleted object entry in it), then the on importing the ToC, the object should be deleted.

    Or (and it's not quite clear from your question) have you tried this and found that ToCs don't delete like workbench objects do. (I would be quite surprised).

    If you have already released the workbench transport and thus removed all traces of the object, you may need to re-create the object catalog entry (and only that, not the object itself). AFAIR this can be done from the transport object list (by double-clicking)?

    Hi,

    If you inlude objects of a transport and some of those objects do not exist in the source system, then when releasing and then importing it in the target system it should remove those objects.

    If the objects do not exist in the tranport then as Volkert said you can manually add entries in your transport top make sure that they will be deleted in the target system.

    Kind regards,
