[SAP CPI] – TRANSPORT PACKAGE BY USING TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT SERVICE – TMS

Hi guys, I this article I want to share my understand about Transport in CPI. Every time we configure and design integration is done, we need transport it from tenant to another tenant.

This can be achieve using Content Agent Service which will acts like an agent that allows to assemble the SAP CPI content and export it to transport queue.

But we cannot transport from CF foundry to NEO environment.

We have four ways to transport package

  • CTS+
  • Transport Management Service
  • MTAR download
  • Manual Export and Import

First, let view landscape of transport package

Next, let view flow transport by using Content Agent Service (CAS) and Transport Management Service (TMS)

In this article, I will talk about one type of transport. It is TMS – Transport Management Service

Pre-requisites:

  • Two separate SAP CPI tenants.(They will act as source and Target tenant)
  • Subscription and admin access to SAP CPI Transport Management Service.
  • Sample integration content to for transport from source to target.
Step 1 : Create two Tenant
Step 2 : Enable Cloud Foundry, create space, create Application Integration Suite and Instance Process Integration Runtime with Plan API and integration-flow for every Tenant
Step 3 Create application Cloud Transport Management
  • This step configure at Source Subaccount

Step 3.1: Add Service Plans

Go to Subaccount

Go to Entitlements

Add Services Plan

Search : Cloud Transport Management

Step 3.2 Create Application

  • Go to Services and Market Place
  • Search : Cloud Transport Management

After done we have

Step 5 Create Instance Content Agent Service and Service Key
  • This step configure at Source Tenant

5.1 Create Instance

  • Go to Services And Market Place
  • Search Content Agent Service
  • Create

5.2 Create service key.

  • This key will be using in configure destination step.
Step 5 : Create Instance Process Integration Runtime with plan API and Service Key
  • This step configure at Source Subaccount

5.1 Create instance Process Integration Runtime with plan API

  • Go to Service and Market places
  • Search : Process Integration Runtime
  • Create
  • Choose Plane : API

Note : This config use ROLE : WorkspacePackagesTransport

5.2 Create Service Key

  • This key will be using in configure destination step.
Step 6 : Create Instance Cloud Transport Management and Service Key
  • This step configure at Source Subaccount

6.1 Create Instance Cloud Transport Management with plan standard

  • Go To Instance and subscriptions
  • Cloud Transport Management
  • Create

6.2 Create service key

OK, after 6 steps above, we configured all application and instances which need for Transport using TMS.

Step 7 Create destination
  • This step configured at source Subaccount

Go to Destination at menu

Click New Destination

Choose Service Instance

  • (1) : Service Instance : Choose service instance of Content Agent Service (Step 5.1)
  • (2) : Name : ContentAssemblyService (Exactly name case sensittive)
  • Next, System will fill data automatically
  • Save
  • Check Connection

In this time, SAP BTP will create one more service key for Instance Content Agent Service

Step 8 Create destination CloudIntegration
  • This step configured at source Subaccount

Go to Destination at menu

Click New Destination

Choose Bank Template

  • Name : Exactly is CloudIntegration
  • Type : HTTP
  • Description : <Any>
  • URL : <SourceTenantUrl>/api/1.0/transportmodule/Transport
  • Client ID : Get in instance Process Integration with Plan API ( Step 2 )
  • Client Secret : Get in instance Process Integration with Plan API ( Step 2 )
  • Token Service URL : Get in instance Process Integration with Plan API ( Step 2 )
  • Save
  • Check Connection
Step 9 : Create destination TransportManagementService 
  • This step configured at source Subaccount

Go to Destination

Click New Destination

Tab Service Instance

  • Service Instance : Choose name instance of service Cloud Transport Management in step 6

SAP BTP will be fill information automatically. Create new properties by config in section Additional Properties

  • Key : sourceSystemId
  • Value : CF_DEV_NODE ( this node will configured in later step. Do not worry) => Step 12.1
  • Save
  • Check Connection
Step 10 Create destination for target tenant at Source Tenant
  • This step configured at source tenant

Go to Destination

New Destination

Blank Template

  • Name : TargetDestination
  • Type : HTTP
  • Description : <Any>
  • URL : https://deploy-service.cfapps.<Region of Target subaccount>.hana.ondemand.com/slprot/<OrgNameOfTarget>/<SpaceNameOfTarget>/slp
  • User : User ID ( Or Email)
  • Pass : Password
  • Authentication : Basic Authentication
  • (1) : OrgNameOfTarget
  • (2) : Region of Target subaccount
  • (3) : SpaceNameOfTarget

NOTE : Org Name Of Target can not have white space. If exist white space in here, although Connection destination response OK when check connection, We also receive Issue NOT FOUND as

Exception during start of deployment for deploy type ‘SLP_CTS’: Error during deployment initialization: Not Found

Save

Check Connection

Ok, We configured all destination. Next we will configured application Transport Management System. Go to this application Cloud Transport Management

Because of you do not have permission, you will receive this screen

Step 11 : Assign ROLE to configure TMS for user

11.1 : ROLE to run application Cloud Transport Management

  • Administrator
  • Landscape Operator

11.2 : ROLE to config transport

  • AuthGroup_Administrator
  • WorkspacePAckages_Transport
Step 12 : Configure TMS

12.1 Create source transport node

  • Go to Transport Nodes

12.2 Create destination transport node

  • Content-Type : Multi-Target Application
  • Destination : <Choose destination in Step 10>

12.3 Create Transport Routes

  • Go to Transport Routes
  • Create New

12.4 Configuration Transport Mode in Integration Suite Application

  • Go to Integration Suite application
  • Go to Design, Develop and Operate Integration scenarios
  • Go to Tenant Setting
  • Edit
  • Choose Transport Management Service
  • Save
  • Check Configuration

OK, Congratulation ! We have already done configured. Next, We will try by transport some package to QAS tenant.

Step 13 : TEST CASE

13.1 Assign ROLE WorkspaceTransportPackage for user

  • Create new Role Collection. Example ZTMS_RoleCollection
  • Add Role WorkspacePackagesTransport for this Role Collection
  • Assign this Role Collection to User
  • Log-Off
  • Log-On

13.2 Create TR

  • Go to package which need transport to QAS
  • Click Transport link

13.3 Review and transport TR in Cloud Transport Management Application

  • Go to Service and Subscription
  • Go to Cloud Transport Management Application
  • Go to Transport Nodes
  • Go to Destination Node
  • Check on TARGET
Step 14 Advanced transport with 3 node

Further we need transport 3 node

  • DEV (Source)
  • QAS (Target)
  • PRD (Target)

We expect that DEV -> QAS -> PRD. How can we do ?

OK, let config for this

14.1 Create destination for PRD

  • Reference above step to create destination from DEV subaccount
  • Example : Production

14.2 Create Transport NODE

Step 14.3 Configuration transport landscape

14.3 Create transport request from DEV Integration Flow

14.3 Check TR in Cloud Transport Management

  • Choose destination QAS or PRD, we view TR number as well

Summary

Cheer ! In this article I shared my understand about step by step transport package to another Subaccount. Many steps which we have to configuration, kindly follow step by step and check by check every step you configure. Next article, I will explore about transport with CTS+, and hope share my understand for all of you. Thanks for your reading and any advise, kindly leave your comment on this. Thanks.

Joseph.

  1. Hi,

    Thanks for taking your time to present this concept.
    I think the picture above the Pre-requisites section has this Destination 3 from CAS to TMS.
    I think it must be from the Source Subaccount(Dev Tenant) to TMS, like the Destination 1 and Destination 2.

    Regards,
    Senthil
