Hi guys,

is there a function which gives me the chance as a developer to release a transport request I created by myself?

I already know the modules


but in my understanding these functions don't allow me to release a transport request.

Many thanks in advance for the help!

Best regards

If A has created a TR then only A can release the TR.

If B wants to release A's TR then B has to change the ownership of A's TR to B,only then B will be able to release the TR.

But why do you want a Custom report for this functionality which is already handled by SAP at a click.



Hi Kiran,

wow, such a fast answer...thanks! :)

The big plan behind all this is to create a report to backup source code.

The idea is the following: Within a report we choose the packages which hold the relevant source code (methods, functions, reports etc.) and create automatically a transport request for this data. Immediately after that we release the transport request and save the related files in the directories "cofile" and "data" to a local harddrive. This procedure can be automatised by the report. We just name the packages to be backupped and a local file path.


Hi Marius,

Can you please tell me what you are trying to do ? why you need a function to release SAP TR when it can be easily released and managed from SE10 transaction.

Just do a bit of debugging and you'll find TR_RELEASE_REQUEST
