Is SAP S/4HANA a valid source system for a Direct Transfer on the Migration Cockpit?


Hi, SAP experts!

My team is currently analyzing the possibility of using SAP's Migration Cockpit to migrate our data from an SAP S/4HANA 2021 system to an SAP S/4HANA 2023 system using the Direct Transfer migration approach.

We're not sure if that's possible though, because while the SAP Help Portal states that "It is not possible to use an SAP S/4HANA system as a source system", the SAP Note 3209755 doesn't seem to overtly say the same thing. So, could you confirm if:

  • An SAP S/4HANA 2021 system can be used as a source system for a Direct Transfer data migration using the Migration Cockpit?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, team!

Considering that your source system isn't an SAP ECC system, you can't use it as a source system for a Direct Transfer migration approach. Such information can be found on the SAP Note 3209755 too, on its "Symptom" part:

This migration approach [Direct Transfer] allows you to migrate data from a source system (an SAP ECC system) to an SAP S/4HANA system.

I hope this answers your question!

Best regards,
SAP Support
