Process of Transportation

Hi Guys:

What is the normal process of Transportation.

Dev -> Quality -> Production. Once Development done it will be release in Dev and tranport to Quality.In Quality all tests will be done. If it is Fine. Product will go the prodution.

My question it will go to <b>production from Quality or Dev</b>.

Regards

Suresh

    Hello suresh,

    It can never be the case that it will go to Production from Dev.

    In any system landscape, the users do not have the development authorization in the quality system. So the program , after getting transported to the Quality System, will be in "code-freeze". Then it is tested extensively for technical and functional bugs. If it passes the tests, then it will be transported to Prod.

    If you transport it from Dev, then there is always a chance that the program can be modified after it has been tested. And this can have very very drastic effects in some rare cases.

    So , In general, the transport route does not even exist from the Dev. system to the Prod system.

    Hope that makes it clear...

    Regards,

    Anand Mandalika.

    Hi Suresh,

    Anand is right.

    The actual transportation is that once a transport TASK is released the objects inside are stored externally in a file (in the designated transport directory).

    Once the transport REQUEST is released a transportable file is created and together with the TASK file(s) these are the actual containers that will walk the transport routes.

    So those files will be created on the original development system.

    When importing these files into Quality or Production they actually use the files from the development system.

    If you want to have control (like a form of approval) before sending transports to production you could set up a virtual quality system to allow for such an approval. See SAP note 313991 for more details about that.

    Regards,

    Rob.
