Change Management Add-On

With the Transport System, SAP provides a tool that helps users manage the changes required to adjust their system. Practice has shown, however, that a number of useful functions are missing from the SAP standard.

This is where the consolut Change Management Add-On comes in: It offers important functions not supplied by the SAP standard in the operational systems, without requiring separate systems or projects. The components of the add-on can be implemented immediately – with virtually no consulting or training required, ensuring an optimal cost-benefit ratio.

The consolut Change Management Add-On consists of the following components:

consolut Transport Check: Checks the objects in a transport request against unprocessed transport requests in order to avoid overtakers.

consolut Transport Upload/Download: Convenient upload and download of transports and attachment of transports to the import queue

TRANSPORT CHECK – Your ticket to more transparency and better quality
 

  • Does your staff spend a lot of time on quality assurance for transports?
  • Are you constantly aware of the risks of overtakers?
  • Are you aware that overtakers may cause data inconsistencies in your systems?
  • How reliable is your transport management system in checking logically connected orders?
  • Are you looking for an effective solution that helps you optimize your transport process by ensuring greater transparency?

If you answered “yes” to the above, then the consolut Transport Check is the right tool for you. Find out why!

Integration
  • Seamless integration into the SAP standard.
  • If no errors are detected, the consolut Transport Check remains invisible.
  • In the event of an error, the system displays a warning message and blocks the import of all interdependent orders.
  • With the appropriate authorization, you can skip warning messages and go ahead with the transport despite the error. This will, however, be documented in a log table.  

Consistency check

  • The consolut Transport Check detects dependencies by checking the content of transport orders to be imported.
  • The tool identifies all interdependent transports, even if they are not immediately recognizable as such based on the description in the transport queue.
  • The consistency check is independent of the client in order to avoid situations where orders with selected target clients, but client-independent objects result in overtakers.

TRANSPORT UPLOAD/DOWNLOAD 

External transports may be imported into the system landscape with some regularity: They may be transports from the notes in the SAP Service Market Place, transports from consulting companies or software manufacturers and special requirements from projects. Technically, imports performed with the standard tools are not complex, but they are inconvenient. The consolut Transport Upload/Download tool offers the possibility of importing or exporting transports, or adding them to an import queue, with just a few mouse clicks. 

The consolut Transport Upload/Download tool: 

GENERAL
“consolut TP-Upload” is a program designed for uploading files from a PC via the SAP GUI to the file system of the SAP server at /usr/sap/trans/data and /usr/sap/trans/cofiles and for downloading file transfers in he other direction. It can be easily used via transaction /CONSOLUT/TP. No access to the operating system and indeed no knowledge of the operating system are needed for file transfer. Each consultant is therefore in a position to transfer files independently.

If you need to add several requests to the import queue at once, you can use transaction /CONSOLUT/TP_ADD in order to do that very convenient. This transaction can add multiple transport requests in one step. Therefore, you do no longer need to do several times “Extras->Other Requests->Add” in STMS.

LANGUAGES – The program is currently available in English and German.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS – There are no special system requirements for the use of the tool.

PRODUCT LIABILITY – consolut TP-Upload is a free-of-charge program. consolut assumes no liability whatsoever for any loss or damage caused by the use of the program, including the inadvertent deletion or editing of data as a result of improper use.

NOTES
The transaction name is /CONSOLUT/TP. The local path (e.g. C:\Temp) must be indicated and the transfer jobs must be entered in the form K. It is possible to run several transfers (uploads and downloads) at the same time.
Important for uploading: it is not necessary to split the files into data files and cofiles. All the files must be located in the same directory. Files can simply be moved from emails to a directory and are then immediately ready for transfer.
