2117773 - Transformation is not deleted in complex landscape


Symptom a)

Provided a similar system landscape:


A transformation was transported from DEV1 to DEV2 and to TEST.

This transformation has a source system dependent source (DataSource1), therefore it received a different technical name (TRANID) in each system.

The transformation in TEST is attempted to be deleted, by transporting it in Delete mode from DEV2 to TEST.

After the transport from DEV2, the transformation 3333 still exists in the system TEST, despite its source and target was the same as of 2222 in DEV2, which was transported as to be deleted.

Symtpom b)

The starting situation is the following:


Then BDLS is executed in TEST and the result will be:

TRANID  4444







Once the deletion of TRANID 1111 is transported to TEST, the Transformation 4444 still exists, despite its source and target was the same as of 1111 in DEV1, which was transported as to be deleted.
