SAP Support Packages Import steps

Support Packages import steps:

The SPAM and SAINT tools executes the following steps to import the support packages into the system. SAP Support Package import steps are categorized into three modules preparation module, import 1 module, import 2 module and cleanup module.




Preparation Module

 

PROLOGUE

This phase checks whether you are
authorized to import Support Packages.

CHECK_REQUIREMENTS

This phase checks various
requirements for importing a Support Package, for example, whether the
transport control program tp can log on
to your system.

DISASSEMBLE

This phase unpacks files from the
appropriate EPS parcels and saves them to the transport directory.

ADD_TO_BUFFER

This phase places the queue in the
transport buffer of your system.

MODIFY_BUFFER

This phase prepares the transport
buffer for correct processing of the following import phases

TEST_IMPORT

This phase performs a test import for
the queue with the transport control program 
tp. The system checks whether there are objects that are in open repairs
and that are overwritten during the import, or whether other conditions
prevent the import of an object.

IMPORT_OBJECT_LIST

This phase imports the object lists
for the Support Packages in the queue into the system.

OBJECTS_LOCKED_?

This phase checks whether there are
objects that are overwritten by the import, and that are still in unreleased
requests.

ADDON_CONFLICTS_?

This phase checks whether there are
conflicts between objects in the queue and any installed add-ons.

SCHEDULE_RDDIMPDP

This phase schedules the transport
daemon (program RDDIMPDP).

Import 1 Module

 

CREATE_VERS_BEFORE

This phase generates versions of the
objects that are contained in the Support Packages in the queue (if this
option is set).

SPDD_SPAU_CHECK

In this phase, the system checks if a
modification adjustment is necessary (transactions SPDD/SPAU).

DDIC_IMPORT

This phase imports all ABAP
Dictionary objects in the queue.

AUTO_MOD_SPDD

This phase checks whether all
modifications to ABAP Dictionary objects can be adjusted automatically.

RUN_SPDD_?

In this phase, you are asked to
adjust your modifications to the ABAP Dictionary objects by calling
transaction SPDD.

LOCK_EU

(only for import
mode downtime-minimized) This phase locks the development environment

 INACTIVE_IMPORT

(only for import mode
downtime-minimized)
This phase imports program code and program texts in an inactive state.

DDIC_ACTIVATION

This phase activates the imported
ABAP Dictionary objects.

Import 2 Module

 

IMPORT_PROPER

This phase imports all the Repository
objects and table entries if they were not already imported in the
INACTIVE_IMPORT phase. This is preceded by actions such as table conversion
and activation of the name tabs.

PREPARE_XPRA

This phase prepares the execution of
the XPRAs and after-import methods.

 UNLOCK_EU

(only for import
mode downtime-minimized) This phase unlocks the development environment.

AUTO_MOD_SPAU

This phase checks whether
modifications can be adjusted automatically.

XPRA_EXECUTION

This phase executes the XPRAs and
after-import methods.

ABAP_GENERATION

This phase generates the runtime
objects for the imported Repository objects (ABAP source texts and screens)

Clean Up Module

 

RUN_SPAU_?

This phase prompts you to adjust your
modifications to Repository objects by calling transaction SPAU.

CLEAR_OLD_REPORTS

(only for import mode
downtime-minimized)
This phase deletes the obsolete versions of program code and program texts in
the database.

EPILOGUE

This phase completes the import.
Among other things, it checks whether the queue has been processed
completely.
