Hi, I provide training in SAP UI5. Also feel free to checkout my new web page https://saptechblog.com

Organizing development and transport across systems

In the earlier tutorial, System Landscape, we studied about the different systems that exist in the organization and their purposes.

As a developer/Technical consultant (ABAPER) our role in the organization would be to create a custom specific application which are not the part of standard, or enhance the standard functionality with additional features.

We carry out our developments in the development server and after testing we move it to the production server. For that we have to organize our development and send it to the production server.



The project manager first creates the change requests and assigns it to your user. A task will be created for you under this request in which you will be adding your development objects. After the developments are complete and testing is through you will release the task for transportation. Once all the tasks under the request are released the project manager will release the request and the Basis team will take care of moving the object in the request from development system to the production system.


While carrying out developments the name of the development object should begin with Z or Y. All the other letters are reserved by SAP for their internal purpose.



Packages are nothing but a folder in which your group your development objects. If you wanted your development to move from one server to another server then it should be a part of package and assigned to a transport request. You cannot assign an object to a package without assigning it to the transport request. A package can contain sub packages within themselves.

Note: If the development objects are not assigned to the Package then it is assigned to the local object, which means the object cannot be moved to production server. However at later point of time we can assign the objects from local object to any package we need.


Transport Request:

We have two types of transport request.

1. Workbench request

2. Customizing request

The development related objects are stored in the workbench request and the configuration related changes are stored in the customizing request.

We will see how to create the packages and the transport request in the next section of tutorials.
