In this blog post I want to explain how to leverage the power of change and deployment management in SAP Cloud ALM in conjunction with the capabilities of SAP Cloud Transport Management Service. By this integration SAP Cloud ALM is capable of supporting the following additional solutions:



















SAP Solution Notes
SAP BTP, Cloud Foundry environment

Mainly development content and some selected services. More under Supported Content Types.


SAP BTP, Neo environment

Mainly development content and some selected services. More under Supported Content Types.


SAP Integration Suite

This includes the capabilities Cloud Integration and API Management.


More under Supported Content Types.



Note: SAP Cloud Transport Management will be subscribed automatically in your SAP Cloud ALM subaccount during provisioning of SAP Cloud ALM. Using this SAP Cloud Transport Management tenant in conjunction with SAP Cloud ALM is free of charge. It is not possible to use an existing SAP Cloud Transport Management tenant in conjunction with SAP Cloud ALM.

I will focus on the example of Cloud Integration as part of the SAP Integration Suite. Find more information about how to set up the integration in my blog post Enabling Change & Deployment Management in SAP Cloud ALM for SAP Integration Suite – Cloud Integrati.... General information about the SAP Cloud Transport Management Service integration with SAP Cloud ALM is available in our SAP Help Portal.

How to utilize features in conjunction with SAP Cloud Transport Management


After you have done the integration you are ready to use features for deploying changes made in Cloud Integration like adding new artifacts to a package. In our example we are preparing an OData service for sales orders.

  • As developer you can start as usual in your Design area within Cloud Integration:



 


 

  • Now you can create a new package or select an existing one:



 

  • In the package you can go to the "Artifacts" tab:



 

  • Switch to Edit mode:



 

  • Now you can edit an existing or add a new artifact:



 

  • In this example the existing artifact is changed and saved as new version:



 

  • Add a comment and confirm by clicking OK:



 

  • Save the artifact change:



 

  • Back on the package level the content can be transported:



 

  • Comment and transport the content:



 

  • The Transport ID is created in the configured Cloud Transport Management Service:



 

  • In SAP Cloud ALM the transport can be assigned to a feature for deployment. You need to switch to Edit mode:




 

  • The feature deployment can be triggered in Display mode:



 

  • After deployment to production tenant finished successfully the feature can be confirmed:



 

  • In Cloud Transport Management we can see that the transport was deployed to the production environment:
