1654088 - How to Migrate the Org Structure from Test System to Productive System


You as Key user, would like to know how to migrate the existing Org Structure in the Test system to Productive system?


  • Import data from first test system to production system:

    If you originally created basic data in a test system, you can import it to your production system with minimum effort. Proceed as follows:

    1. The system automatically extracted the organizational structure data from your test system into a spreadsheet and uploaded it to the migration tool of the production system.

    2. In the Perform Organizational Structure Setup activity in the Fine-Tune phase, choose Import organizational structure copied from test system.

    3. Under Source Files, select this spreadsheet and choose Execute Migration .

    4. Process the file until you have successfully imported the organizational structure data to the system.

    5. Check, complete, and activate migrated data in the Edit Org Structures view of the Organizational Management work center.

      Note that you can only import the org structure that is valid at one key date.

  • Copy basic data from production system to migration test system:

    If you created basic data in a production system and are working in a migration test system now, the data was copied to the migration test system automatically already. In this case you do not have to import it to the migration test system.

    To reduce the effort, do not create basic data in the migration test system initially. In this case, you would have to repeat creation in the production system.

  • Restricted: Initial setup by import of individually created source file:

    Experienced migration experts can initially set up the org structure in the migration template and import it using the migration tool, just like you would do it with other migration objects. For the organizational structure, this can only be done in close cooperation with your SAP service adviser.

  • Import of data from a SAP Business ByDesign production system to a different production system:

    This option is not supported. You cannot import a file extracted from an production system. You must initially setup the org structure for the new system version again
