Handling Delivery with Transports


After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Describe how changes are handled using transport management
  • Use SAP Cloud Transport Management service at a basic level

Handling of Changes Using Transport Management

In a previous lesson, you modeled your delivery landscape in SAP Cloud Transport Management.

In this lesson, you will learn how to use SAP Cloud Transport Management to deliver content to your target environments. For this, you will discover a typical example where SAP Continuous Integration and Delivery service is used to upload a multi-target application (MTA) archive to SAP Cloud Transport Management. You will manually trigger the import of the resulting transport request.

You will check the logs of the import and also find out about options to schedule an automatic import.

Transport Concept

The following figure shows an example transport landscape, where we use the SAP Continuous Integration & Delivery service to create a transport request and upload an application to SAP Cloud Transport Management service.

The Usage of SAP Cloud Transport Management Service at a Basic Level

In our example, the first target for deployment will be the development sub-account. Therefore, the transport request is initially placed into the import queue of the Dev transport node.

From the queue, you can trigger the import into the development sub-account from SAP Cloud Transport Management. At the same time, the transport request will be forwarded into the import queue of the successor node in our transport landscape, in our example the Test transport node.

Here, you trigger the import into the Test node, again from the corresponding import queue – which forwards the transport request into the import queue of the successor node. After the deployment has happened, you can perform additional tests on the Test sub-account, such as central integration tests.

If everything is fine, you handle the import into the final target node.

All changes will get reflected in a central log file, which you can use for auditing reasons.

To get a first feeling about how the handling does look like in the service itself, watch the following demo video:


You are now able to:

  • Trigger imports in SAP Cloud Transport Management.
  • Check the result and log of an import.
