Personas 2.0: How to "Transport" the whole Personas app to QA sys?
Hi Personas experts,
I have developed some Personas (2.0) apps on Sandbox/Devlopment sys. Now I want to "move" the whole program to QA sys for testing. Can anyone give some details about how to use SAP transpotation to move the "Whole" app?
I am thinking that the followings need to be moved (pls correct me):
1. The configuration of Personas (eg, made by tcode spro) - can this part to be transported directly?
2. The settings such as users, groups made by admin_ui. Can this be transported directly?
3. The app impelmentations - such as all the flavours. Can this part be transported directly? If so, how?
Thanks a lot in advance!

Technically speaking it IS possible to transport the configuration in SPRO or even what is done in the Admin transaction since everything is stored in various DB tables. So while some of this is rather tedious, you can build the necessary transport entries manually.
I did the same at a customer where I used the Profile Wide Settings to create a theme and I didn't feel like recreating all that in each target client (plus introduce a lot of possibility for making a mistake). The trouble with this was that the settings are linked to the originating system with a GUID and it was necessary to patch this (with an ABAP program) in the target system after transport so that my theme would show up.
Transporting users and groups is not recommended... even though the possibility is provided, it's still better to build the groups in each client since the users and their authorizations / roles will likely be different.
As Neil mentioned, flavors and media files are easily transported but the system association of flavors has to be adjusted manually in the target system.
