Object Transport

Now we are ready to transport BW objects. Use the following procedure.

Work Instructions

Step 1. From Administrator Workbench, click the Transport Connection bar in the leftmost panel.

Click graphics/grouping.gif and select how BW should group the associated objects. We have seen this window before in Screen 10.48. In our example, we select in dataflow before and aftrwds.






We know that dependencies exist among BW objects. Using this option, we can group relevant objects and transport them together.

Step 2. Drag and drop InfoCube IC_NEWBC5 to the rightmost panel, and then click graphics/transport.gif to transport the objects.

Step 3. BW asks us to change the development class for the objects selected in Screen 14.10. Screen 14.11 shows the original development class, which is $TMP. In Screen 14.12, we will change the development class from $TMP to ZBW2, the development class we created in Section 14.2.

Step 4. Enter ZBW2, the development class we created in Section 14.2. Click graphics/save.gif to save the change and continue.

Step 5. Click graphics/attribute.gif to create a transport request.



SCREEN 14.13


Step 6. Enter a Short description for the transport request, and then click graphics/save.gif to save the transport request.

Step 7. Click graphics/continue.gif to continue.



SCREEN 14.15


Step 8. Green lights in the lower-middle status panel indicate that we have successfully created a transport request for the InfoCube IC_NEWBC5 and its associated objects.

Step 9. Now we need to release the transport requests.

Run transaction SE09, and then click graphics/display1.gif.



SCREEN 14.17


Step 10. The transport request BW2K900063 applies to the development class ZBW2, and BW2K900065 applies to the InfoCube IC_NEWBC5 and its associated objects.

Select BW2K900064, and then click graphics/transport.gif to release the request.




Technically speaking, releasing a transport request actually exports the objects in the transport request.

Step 11. Enter a description, and then click graphics/save.gif to save it.



SCREEN 14.19


Step 12. Select BW2K900063, and then click graphics/transport.gif to release the request.

SCREEN 14.20



A check mark appears on the right of BW2K000923 and BW2K000924. It indicates that the development class has been exported (Screen 14.21).

In the same way, we can release the transport request BW2K00065 (Screen 14.22).

SCREEN 14.22


To import these previously exported objects, we would run transaction STMS in the target system. Because we have only one BW system, we cannot demonstrate this operation, however. Refer to the SAP Basis documentation for further information.
