Transport REDO

REDO – REVERT A TRANSPORT IMPORT, JUST LIKE THE IMPORT NEVER ACTUALLY HAPPENED.

  • With REDO ABAP-Experts.com released a plug-in which enables a quick rollback of a SAP© transport import. Rolling back or undoing a change within commonly used desktop software, we take for granted the “Undo” function. The lack of this functionality in a market leading environment like SAP is just astonishing.
  • Have you ever wondered why it is not possible to easily undo changes introduced by an erroneous transport? We at ABAP-Experts.com did and therefore designed a plugin which suits all environments and which enables a redeployment of objects in just a few clicks.
  • Avoid emergency call outs because of failing code or corrupted configuration, avoid full system restores, avoid manual workarounds for building a remedy transport… REDO is your ultimate insurance policy when an erroneous transport felt through the cracks and impacts your SAP system.
  • REDO is available in two (plug-in) versions. Both flavors share the same code base though differ in terms of functionality and the way they integrate within your SAP software deployment process.
  • REDO for TMS (SAP’s standard Transport Management System) is very versatile and enables rollback functionality for environment using TMS and ChaRM. For environments using Transport Center, our popular transport management add-on, REDO for TRACE will provide even more functions.
  • Both versions are available through an interesting subscription plan. Find out which version fits your landscape best using the below comparison matrix.

OVERVIEW

You configure yourself for which target system(s) the plug-in should automatically generate a backup request. While triggering an import the RE.Do plug-in is invoked, which may not even be noticeable to the user.

RE.Do enables manual redeployment of objects using the standard STMS transaction.  Can it be more simple?

With just one click can you restore corrupted workbench and configuration objects for single transports. The RE.Do plug-on for Transport Center also enables a restore for a sequence of transports, along with native TRACE security checks and an approval workflow.

Your organization requires a strict policy for emergency transports and repairs? No problem, using the TRACE workflow you can enforce the same. Segregation of duties can easily be configured to suit all organizations and environments.

Imagine a worst-case scenario, restoring a production system after e.g. the sales order intake process or month-end closing procedure has been corrupted. A transport rollback always needs to be executed with care, e.g. outdated backup transports should not cause even more damage. The RE.Do plug-in integrated within TRACE therefore enables collision prevention while restoring.

Our one-click restore process allows you to undo a single transport or an entire cutover, a feature that is available through the integration within Transport Center. Our native TRACE integration enables full reporting and audit compliancy when dealing with restore transports and its approvals.

REDO FOR TMS

  • Would you like to parachute without appropriate equipment? A skydiver’s equipment is made up of three main parachute system components and generally a reserve automatic activation device. It may not be your life that’s at risk when it comes to failing SAP transports though a broken system quickly turns into an expensive and unpleasant scenario.
  • REDO for TMS is a basic plug-in for SAP standard. Invisible to the end user the plug-in operates in background, until your system runs into issues because of an erroneous import. Then REDO becomes your safety net. To prevent further damage and system or process downtime your system admin can restore erroneous objects or customizing in no time, without having to go for a full system restore!
  • Avoid emergency call outs because of failing code or corrupted configuration, avoid full system restores, avoid manual workarounds for building a remedy transport… REDO is your ultimate insurance policy when an erroneous transport felt through the cracks and impacts your SAP system.
