Transporting individual business functions

Former Member

I have observed a few discussions on this topic, but was hoping to start a new as the others had some other moving parts (industry solutions/etc).

We have a couple of projects going on in a DEV environment that require a number of BFs to be activated.  The are in the FI, HCM and LOG areas.

One of those projects would like to move the QAS system but it seems the transport option in SFW5 will move all that have been activated.

  1. It seems the only option is to activate manually in QAS (and PRD) despite that being against recommendations?
  2. Are there potentially going to be issues if we don't activate BFs in the same order?  I hope not, as this would seem like a very limiting design approach from SAP!

Thanks for any input!!

Hi Eric,

You can transport it via SFW5 by selecting menu System -> Transport

  Some Business Functions are not reversible, so once acitvate then is

not possible to revert it back. Also during transport all configurations

will be transported to the next system. This means you cannot transport

the activation of just 1 Business function but the entire scenario.

Thanks Paul

I opened a ticket with SAP and they confirmed the same!  It does seem limiting that individual functional teams cannot independently check out Business Functions and then move them up as needed.

Maybe someday!
