Create a New Track from existing Track


Please help me with below requirement ..

we have an existing track where we all do our developments/fixes . Now i want to make copy of this track means i want exact replica of the this track (including DC's and source code also ) .

I tried below way

  • CMS -> Landscape Configurator - Select Track (Source) - Save As button - Enter all the necessary

          Now my track is created but it doesn't have any DC's . it just created workspaces (like DEV,CONS)in the DTR but not the DC's .

  • I tried the below to copy the DC's from the existing track .

          From Transport Studio -> Select Source Track -> go to Approval Tab -> Forward from History-> Give target . after this i tried to import this from development tab of target Track . this didn't work .

*one strange issue that once i login to my old track from NWDS and tried to login to new track (this doesn't have nay DCs' yet)it says you are already logged in . what is reason behind this ?

one more thing Source track doesn't have latest SCA in the approval tab . i am not sure why ? we use CTS+ to move transports to DEV to QA -> PROD  .

I am trying to create track in the same DTR  as old track exists.

Please let me know how to replica of existing track and resolve this login issue .

    Hi Ervin,

    How are you . i hope u rememberd me from SAP labs [WD team] 😉 .

    I have created Track from existing track. I forwarded SC from assembly tab . i imported this in the new track from Development tab. this created my DCs' in the (DEV and CONS)WorkSpaces in DTR .

    I have some problme now . i logged into my old track from NWDS at the same time when i tried to loginto new track it says "you are already logged on http://<server>:<port>/dtr with other user name".

    i dont why it says this . i cant find out what is this user login dependency also . i haven't deployed dependency SC's yet [like WD-RUNTIME ,ENGINE FACADE etc ..]

    Track is for CE 7.11 development and NWDI version in 7.01

    Please advice .

    • Hey Rakesh bhai,

      I am happy that we talked and that we managed to solve this at the end.  🤣

      What we did is that we created a new NWDS workspace and there once we reimported all the involved tracks we could not reproduce this again. As discussed using the "save password" option the passwords were cached in your nwds workspace on client side.

      Apparently the username was mistyped on one track and -- since it has been cached -- it tried to use that different user to log on. On 711 it seems there is no password cache reset (like on e.g. 730 there is) so we have reset the password basically by creating a new workspace. Now you can delete the old one, and use the new one, or just delete both and recreate the old one if you want to use the same workspace name.

      Have a good time!

      Best Regards,

    Before forwarding your custom SCs, did you import the build plugins(eg BUILDT, JTECHS, etc)?

    You can replicate your track within the same NWDI using the DTR console. What is nice about replicating as opposed to SC forwarding is that it will keep your entire change history, which is lost when you forward SCs from one track to another.

    • Hi,

      "save as" feature only creates a new track "skeleton" and also creates the corresponding DTR workspaces folders -- plus creates empty CBS buildspaces (for dev and cons) -- once you save this track. It is NOT copying the content.

      If you wish to have a complete copy of a track (including its imported SCs, i.e, the content) then I suggest you to go for the replcation approach as suggested by Stefan.

      In case you would like to have more information on the usage of replication, I suggest you to start DTR console, and use its "help" command.

      I hope this helps.

      Best Regards,
