Mastering Transport Requests in SAP MM: A Comprehensive Guide


Transport requests (TRs) are the backbone of change management within the SAP Material Management (MM) module. Whether you’re customizing your system to fit your procurement process, implementing enhancements, or fixing bugs, understanding TRs is essential to ensure smooth and controlled changes across your SAP landscape. Let’s delve into the world of MM TRs!

What are Transport Requests?

  • Think of a TR as a container or package that holds all the configuration changes, developments, and code modifications you make in your SAP MM module.
  • When you create a TR, all changes are tracked, allowing organized movement of those changes between your SAP systems (typically Development, Quality Assurance, and Production).

Types of Transport Requests

  1. Customizing Requests:
    1. Capture all configuration changes in SAP MM (e.g., new purchasing organizations, material groups, document types, etc.)
    2. Most frequent type of TR used in MM
  2. Workbench Requests:
    1. Store development objects like ABAP code (reports, enhancements, interfaces), dictionary objects, and more.
    2. Essential for custom developments within the MM module

Creating Transport Requests

  1. Transaction Codes: Use these key transaction codes to manage TRs:
    1. SE09/SE10: Primary TR management transactions
    2. SE01: Alternative TR creation and management
  2. Process:
    1. Access the relevant T-code.
    2. Choose the type of request (Customizing or Workbench).
    3. Provide a short, descriptive name for your TR.
    4. Assign a target system (if you want to move the changes immediately).

Key Steps in the Transport Process

  1. Development: Create and record changes in your Development system within a TR.
  2. Release Tasks: Individual tasks within the TR must be released to prepare them for transport.
  3. Release Transport Request: Once all tasks are released, release the entire TR, triggering the export process. This creates files on your SAP system.
  4. Import into QA: Import the TR files into your Quality Assurance system for testing.
  5. Import into Production: After successful testing, import the TR into your Production environment to deploy the changes.
