Maintaining transport request move sequence

Dear All,

Wish you happy new year.

We have one development server (Sandbox), Quality Server then training server and finally production server.

suppose I Developed an application (ALV Report) in development server , then transported it to quality server for testing the same, and again due to some error or change in requirement modified the sameĀ  2 -3 times and transported it back into quality server. Now finally solution is accepted by functional person.

here My question is : do I need to keep track of all the Transport Requests from creation of the program to final version. is all the transport request move sequence is required to move the same program into production server.

if yes then from where I can get it as I copied it from SE09. but I feel this is not the correct way to maintain please share if any template or tcode which give u all the sequence of the transport requests for a particular program.

thanks in advance

Essentially yes. The contents of transport requests are deltas just the changed objects/subobjects/components from the previous version. So for programs, after the initial transport, you only get the actual components touched recorded in a transport.

There are various ways of managing this, which can be automated to an extent. For example:

1. Create a transport

2. Do your work

3. Make a Transport of Copies (ToC) from the transport at 1.

4. Transport the ToC to test. (Never to production).

5. Make fixes (your transport at 1 is still open, so everything can go against that).

6. Go through 3-4 until the testers are happy

7. Release the transport at 1, import into test, import into production.
