You just started your SAP Training and you are trying to do your first customization request inthe system, the system will prompt you with a Customization Request as shown below.How do you get past this screen? What is a Customizing Request? Simply put, a customizationrequest is SAP‟s way of sayingYou are modifying the SAP system. Please specify the number to record it under.You can create your own Customizing Request number or choose from an existing CustomizingRequest Number. Since you just started off, create your own Customization request by clickingon the “new‟ button. A new windowopens up where you can provide a description of the change. Give a human-readable „short-description‟ so that you/somebody else can read it later and identify the actual change and clickon the save button in the bottom.
These Transport Requests are a log of the database changes done due to some customizing (inthis case, creation of a new customer group) and can be viewed in SE01
Click on Display to view all the Transport Requests you have created. The newly createdTransport request VANK900323 has been highlighted below in red.Let me take another example of SAP Product Hierarchy that I have created and saved using theSAP Transport Request Number VANK900319 (The one right above the highlighted one). Click
on the folder button to the left of the Transport request to view the contents of the change.As you can see, the view affected in this customization is V_T179 (which is tables T179 andT179T) and the database contents that have been changed are new entries being created asfollows.It is exactly these entries that are being recorded in the Transport Request.Now you know the contents of a Transport Request, why transport requests are created, but whotransfers these to the Target system? The Basis Consultant is responsible for this.
There are 3 types of Transport requests:K type:The transport K type implements transports of DE objects from the integration system into theconsolidation system. When you create a transport request using the workbench organizer, italways uses this transport type by default meaning that all the transportable change requestsstored in the workbench organizer are allocate this transport type. For this transport type, theobjects are transported to the consolidated systems without changing the object‟s system ownerwhich means that the transported objects in the consolidated system become repair objects andno corrections are allowed for the imported objects.C type:With this transport type the objects change the system owner after they are transported whichmeans that the source system of the object loses its ownership after the object is transported. Sothe target system in which the objects are transported becomes the original system. In otherwords objects are transported as original objects. So they can be corrected or modified in thetarget system too. That means that change authorization is also transported. In SAP terms,objects that are transported with C types are checked out of a system and checked into anothersystem.T type:This transport type is useful when you have to copy object between two systems in a group iewhen a system(other than consolidation system) receives a copy of objects, the correspondingtransport takes place with transport type T. Object including the object of transport type T do notchange their system owner
