How to activate the template project contents in target system
We are making some tests with the solution manager, in order to start working with this tool in a big Templates project. We have currently the following machines or landscapes:
- Source system (IED)
- Target system (IET).
We have created a test template project (PROJ_TEMPL) in SSM, and included on SOLAR02 one example item of customizing (BC Set) and one item of development (ABAP report). We made our template project public. After this, we created a new implementation project in SSM, and included in it the previously created template. then in SOLAR02 we added one BCSET and also one request, for the logical component of the target system, to our test process. Until this point all seems logic.
Now we are stopped in the following question: how do we pass the contents that are included in the template, (that were created in the source system) to the target system? We are missing here some step... and did not find it in the marketplace documentation.
Is there any functionality in the Implementation project to activate all the contents in the target system at once (customizing and developments)?
Thanks in advance.

Your understanding is right.
From TEMPLATE to IMPLEMENTATION project, Solution Manager helps you copy the structure and the object references only (and not the 'config' or 'development' under those objects).
For actual movement of those objects from say, DEV to QAS or from DEV to another DEV you would have to carry out the normal Customizing/ Workbench transports as usual.
There's a specific functionality in Solution Manager called, CUSTOMIZING DISTRIBUTION, which will help you to achieve what you are looking for.

If you are able to find the info yourself and are happy to proceed, good luck. If there are more doubts, please feel free to ask.
