How to move PI objects in IR and ID from DEV to QAS

Hi experts,

I am new to PI and with lot of research and help from you all experts I could successfully create a scenario from XML to CSV conversion. I created message interface, interface mapping objects etc.. in "Integration Repository" and conficguration scenario, sender and receiver communication channels etc. in "Integration directory". Everything is working fine in DEV and now I want to move all these to QAS. I went through some documents on SDN and it was talking about XI track and CTS and I am so new to all these, I am not sure how to get started. Could someone please let me know the procedure of moving PI objects from DEV to QAS?

Thanks.

    Not to Worry Mithun Da!

    There are two ways to transport ID and IR Object to transport .

    1. CTS + : Totally automated Way .,

    2. .tpz : Manual Lagacy Import / Import way .

    Now . Steps .are :

    There are two types of transport mechanisms in XI/PI.

    1. File Transport System.

    Files are imported and exported into SAP XI OS Level for Development and Quality Server,

    This Process is risky as there is no automated system and there is no track record of imported or Exported Files,

    as in this syetem exported files are transported to QA System from DEV System.

    file Extension in file transport System : - .tpz

    2. Through CTMS(Change Transport Managment System).

    GUI Based tool, Installed on SAP XI BOX, This system provides the automated transport system , which keep tracks of transported Objects and Failed objects.

    There are initial level efforts to set up transport system.

    Transport Procedure for Various System :-

    DESIGN OBJECTS ---> (ENTERPRISE SERVICE REPSITORY OBJECTS) -


    > INTEGRATION BUILDER.

    Step -I

    1. Select NameSpace to trasport.

    2. Right Click on NameSpace to Transport.

    3. Select Export Option.

    4. Check or Select the Software Component Version.

    5. Check the Mode of transport.

          • CTS MOde:-

          5.1 Select a required type of Object Set:

          IN OUR CASE: ALL OBJECT OF INDIVIDUAL NAMESPACE.

          5.2 Select Transort request.

          5.3 Finish the Process.

                • TRANSPORT USING FILE SYSTEM:-

                5.1 Select a required type of Object Set:

                Step III( Steps to be Perform at Target System).

                1. Execute Transection Code STMS.

                2. Check your Transport Request Number.

                3. Focus on that Trasport Request Number Through Mouse.

                4. Now Import The Transport Request on Specific client of Target System.

                5.Click Ok.

                FINAL :- NOw on Quality Server all Transported Objects Need to be activated.

                CONFIGURATION OBJECTS ---> (INTEGRATION DIRECTORY) -


                > INTEGRATION BUILDER.

                Step -I

                            Hi,

                            Transport to QAS can be done either through File system based or CMS or CTS+...

                            if you are using PI 7.0 or 7.1 then better can go for CTS +

                            Link for the same is as below..

                            http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/index?rid=/library/uuid/20ccd0ec-2839-2b10-0097-828fcd8ed809

                            else if you want to go for Manual file based transport means..

                            First transfer SLD Content (Product,SWC, Technical system and business sytems)

                            Then IR export the SWC and import the same in QAS ..similarly export ID and Import...

                            lot of advantages using CTS+ than File based...

                            HTH

                            Hi ,

                            Keep One thing in remeber .

                            In Your DEV SLD :

                            Create ALL Objects for DEV/ QAS/ PRD and assign them transport target accordingly .

                            Now from DEV SLD , Transport them to QAS.

                            This Transport targets help during the transport of ID Object Transport< While transport of ID Object from DEV to QAS , name of Buisness System automatically change to QAS Business Ssystem as transport targets are already set in SLD.

                            Cheers .

                            I hope this nff for understanding ..

                            still have doubts please ask.
