This video provides a detailed explanation on how to transport customizing requests in SAP S/4 HANA Finance. Here is a summary of the key points discussed in the video:
- Introduction: The video begins with an introduction to the concept of transporting customizing objects or customizing requests in SAP S/4 HANA Finance. The speaker explains that this is a crucial skill for functional FICO consultants, as it involves moving configurations or requests from one client to another, or from one server to another.
- What is a Transport Request?: A transport request is a container or collection of changes made in the development system. It records information regarding the type of change, the purpose of the transport, the request category, and the target system. It is also known as a change request. Each transport request contains one or more change tasks, which are stored inside a transport request like multiple files stored in a folder.
- Transporting Customizing Requests: The speaker demonstrates how to transport customizing requests using the transaction code SE09. This process involves copying the request from the development client and then using the transaction code SCC1 to transport it to the testing client. The speaker also explains the difference between copying and importing requests. Copying is cross-client but within the same server, while importing is cross-client but can be between different servers.
- Releasing Requests Before a request can be imported, it must first be released. This can be done using the ‘Release Directly’ icon in the transport organizer. Once the request has been released, it can be imported into the target server using the transaction code STMS_IMPORTS.
- Conclusion The video concludes with a reminder that while the process of transporting customizing requests is typically the responsibility of the business team, it’s important for functional consultants to understand this process as well.
