General Information: Change Request Management uses variants of the service transaction to process change transactions in SAP system landscapes. The variants are implemented by means of PPF actions that enable integration between selected transaction types and SAP Solution Manager to use the scenario Change Request Management. As a result, transport requests, for example, can be created and released in systems in the landscape, and transported into various systems. These types of operative action are performed by means of a task list in the Schedule Manager. Before you start to configure Change Request Management, make sure that you have performed all the Solution Manager IMG activities under the nodes: Solution Manager -> Basic Settings Solution Manager -> Scenario-Specific Settings -> General Settings Procedures to Activate BC Sets: 1.) Select Activate BC Sets from the IMG Reference menu:

Procedures for Satellite Transport Management System Configuration: 1.) Select text guidelines under Transport Management System for Standard Configuration from the IMG Reference menu:

2.) General Information: You must perform all TMS activities in the satellite systems and not in the SAP Solution Manager system. 3.) Define Transport Routes between the systems in your system landscape. See the TMS online documentation in transaction STMS by choosing Help -> Application Help -> Configuring TMS. Note: Transports are supported in the standard transport layer of each client. When you configure transport routes, only consolidation routes that are assigned to the standard transport layer of the relevant exporting client are taken into consideration. For each exporting client, exactly one target client and one target group are permitted. We recommend that you assign exactly one development system to a production system, and that these two systems are connected by exactly one unique transport track. If a development system and a production system are connected by more than one transport track, this may lead to inconsistencies within the transport distribution. This type of transport configuration cannot be supported by Change Request Management, and may cause inconsistencies within the tools involved.

a.) Call transaction STMS in client 000 on the Satellite System. b.) Select the Transport Routes icon from the IMS main screen:

c.) Select edit

icon from the screen.

d.) Select the path Edit Transport Route Add Transport Route:

e.) With the pencil cursor you will need to start at the system icon and go outside the box and back in. The pop-up window Create Transport Route will appear:

Verify the option is set and enter the Transport Layer and Client for the source of the Satellite System. For this document it is EC1:800. f.) Enter the transfer icon save the Transport Route.

g.) Repeat step 3e for each client that following:

4.) Activate Extended Transport Control to allow the Solution Manager to control the creation and movement of transports throughout the system landscape. a.) Call transaction STMS in client 000 on the Satellite System. b.) Choose path Overview -> Systems.

c.) Double-click each system.

d.) The Display TMS Configuration: System <system ID> screen appears.

e.) Select the

tab page.

f.) If the entry CTC does not appear in the Parameters column, enter it there and then in the Value column, enter 1, and select the save icon.

5.) Configure Transport Strategy: In the transport tracks where the software distribution is controlled by Change Request Management, you must deactivate the QA approval procedure in the TMS, since this procedure is incompatible with the approval procedure in Change Request Management. Additionally, you have to activate the "Single transports" strategy. This prevents you from accidentally executing "Import All". All transports within the system landscape of Change Request Management must be processed by project imports. Note: When you activate "Single transports", manually executed single imports cannot be imported again by using "Import Project". If you want to execute these single imports again by using a subsequent "Import Project", you have to set the corresponding transport option. a.) Call transaction STMS in client 000 on the Satellite System. b.) Choose path Overview -> Transport Route:

c.) Select edit

icon and double-click each system.

d.) The Change System Attributes dialog box appears:

e.) In the Transport strategy group box, select Import Single and Import Project All are used):

6.) Activate TMS Trusted Services: In the system where the transport domain controller runs a Trusted Service must be in place. To find out which system is the domain controller, call transaction STMS and choose Overview -> Systems. In the Cat column (with the quick info text TMS system type), look for the icon with the quick info text Controller. Log on to the SAP system that functions as the transport domain controller. a.) Call transaction STMS in client 000 on the Satellite System. b.) Choose path Overview -> Systems:

7.) Activate Domain Links: If multiple transport domains are used and projects in the Solution Manager have been defined as cross-domain projects, you must define interdomain links between the transport domains, regardless of whether change requests are moved between domains or not. If, for example, the Change Request Management system is in domain A, but the satellite systems between which requests are transported is in domain B, Change Request Management has to trigger transports in a foreign domain. This is only possible by means of domain links, which are usually done with the Solution Manager System. a.) Call transaction STMS in client 000 on the Satellite System. b.) Choose path Overview -> Systems:

c.) Choose path SAP System Create Domain Link:

d.) Enter the system values of the Solution Manager in the Request for Linking 2 Domains pop-up window and select icon.

e.) The System Overview display should appear and look like:

f.) Select green arrow

back icon to continue.

8.) Check Configuration of Transport Domain: Check whether the transport domain has been configured correctly. Log on to every domain controller that is connected to the transport landscape, call transaction STMS and apart from the information "You are logged onto the domain controller", you should not be able to see other messages or warnings. a.) The display of STMS main and System Overview from Solution Manager System:

b.) The display of STMS main screen and System Overview from Satellite Systems:

9.) Generate RFC Destinations to Client 000: Since Change Request Management reads important information about the system landscape (such as the transport routes) from the individual domain controllers; you must make sure that you generate RFC destinations from the Change Request Management system to client 000 of all domain controllers in the system landscape. Note: To generating RFC destinations follow IMG activity: SAP Solution Manager -> Basic Settings -> SAP Solution Manager System -> System Landscape -> System Landscape Settings -> Generate RFCs. When the RFCs are completed the Clients tab in the Systems Overview in transaction SMSY should be similar to this:

10.) Add Import Authorization to Operator/Administrator: Change Request Management uses the import functions of the Transport Management System (TMS). The TMS remote infrastructure is based on RFC connections that point solely to the 000 client of a target system. The operator and administrator users need to have import authorization for client 000 of all target systems: a.) Make sure that the operator and administrator users in client 000 of the target systems have the same name as their user in the Solution Manager system. b.) Assign import authorization to the operator and administrator users in client 000 of the target systems (SAP_CHANGEMAN_OPERATOR and SAP_CHANGEMAN_ADMIN roles).

Procedures for Standard Change Request Management Configuration: 1.) Select text guidelines under Set Project Assignment of Requests as Mandatory for Change Request Management from the IMG Reference menu:

Note: For each system where you want transport requests to be created, you have to set the project assignment of requests as mandatory. If you set the project assignment of requests as mandatory, you cannot release transport requests without projects. In a transition period during which projects are set up, it may be necessary to create dummy projects so that developments that were made prior to the availability of Change Request Management can still be transported. a.) Call transaction /TMWFLOW/CMSCONF: Or

Note: When executing the transaction from the Transaction field do not forget to put the /n in front of the transaction name.

b.) Check the entries in the Project Assignment column.

c.) Double-click the entry if a change is required. 2.) Change Transport Request Option: The task lists that are generated by Change Request Management in the Schedule Manager of Solution Manager are Customizing objects. However, since your Change Request Management is in a central system, and all tasks run in this system, you do not want to transport the task lists anywhere. To ensure that you do not need to create a transport request when you change a task list manually, you have to change the transport request option.
