SAP Transport Request within Different Clients on Same System

This can be done with Extended Transport Control.

Extended Transport Control is another way to set up the Transport Route so that the route is system and CLIENT specific.

In other words, when you release a change request in DEV Client 100 it will not only automatically be added to the Import Queue for QAS but also Client 200, 300, etc. of DEV.

To set this up requires the steps below:

1) Open the file TP_DOMAIN_DEV.PFL (located on your transport domain controller such as the DEV box. The file will be in usrsaptrans/bin)

Edit with notepad for each parameter on each system:


Change to 1

2) Next you need to create Target Group before creating the transport route.

Create a Target Group:
Access the initial screen of the graphical or the hierarchical editor in change mode.
STMS > Overview > Transport Routes (the default editor will appear, either Hierarchical or Graphical, to change the default editor : STMS > Extras > Settings > Transport Routes. You can also switch to one or the other from Goto > Graphical Editor.)

> Configuration > Display Change > (or change icon or F5)

Edit > Transport Target Groups > Create

In the dialog box, Create Target Group:
Enter a name for the target group /GR_QA/ (The name must begin and end with a forward slash /)

…and a description Targets for Consolidation route

Choose “Insert line”
Enter the required target system/client combinations
Use a separate line for each client.


Target System Target Client Client Name
DEV 200 Sandbox
DEV 300 Testing
QAS 100 Quality Assurance System

The idea is that we want to include the clients that will get an addition to their import queue when we release a change request from DEV.

Choose Transfer
Now you have to change the transport route to include the Target Group you created.
STMS > Overview > Transport Routes > F5 (change mode) Edit > Transport Routes > Delete
Now create a Transport Route with Extented Transport Control:

STMS > Overview > Transport Routes > F5 (change mode) Edit > Transport Routes > Create > Extended Transport Control icon at lower left of dialog box. > Consolidation route, enter integration system and transport layer. In Target system/client enter the SID of either an R/3 System and a client or an existing Target Group.

Each System must be specified by System and Client. The Target Group can be used for the consolidation system.

Distribute and activate the changes as usual by choosing Configuration > Distribute and activate

NOTE: After you set up Extended Transport Control there might be requests in an import queue that will show a red status in the CTL column. This is because these change requests need a client specified before they can be imported. These are old requests that were already in the queue.

From Import Queue Screen Mark the change request
Choose Request > Target Client > Set
Enter the Target Client ID and choose Enter.

To change a target client before starting an import:
Import Queue Screen > mark Change request > target client > change > enter target client id and choose enter.

Now, ready to set the automatic transport/import job

Goto TCODE STMS -> Overview Menu select Import -> Double click on the SID -> Click on Import all Requests truck -> Select At Start Time -> Enter a time and date -> Press F4 and select the period the job has to run -> Now the background job i scheduled and imports will be done in periodic intervals as mentioned in the job
