2309728 - Frequently Asked Questions on Solution Profile Copy


Below are few commonly asked questions and their answers on Solution Profile Copy.


Scenario: Customer created new Test system from an existing Productive system. The scenario used is Copy Of source system (Copy Solution Profile). Now, the change project exists in the test system but missing in the productive system.

Question 1: Is this expected behavior?

Answer 1: Yes, requesting a new test tenant as copy of the productive system with additional copy of solution profile is the recommended way to request a new remote test system for a change project. After the import into the new test tenant the change project is deleted in
the productive tenant (which is the standard behavior for a remote change project).

Question 2: Is merge back supported in this scenario?

Answer 2: Yes, when the SPC process runs through successfully, the connections between both tenants should be established and a merge back should be possible.

Question 3:  For this Change project the filed Created by in the Test system is showing Technical User(SAP_LMPRV) instead of the actual user who created this project in the productive system. Is this expected?

Answer 3: This is added into development's product Backlog for future release.

Question 4: It is expected that, when creating a new test system with copy of production, all the Change projects (regardless of status) will be copied to the Test System from productive system. Customer is trying to open the one of the cancelled project.

Answer 4: Yes, as it is a full tenant copy all workspaces are copied regardless of their status. We also think that this is confusing and consider to delete the not relevant workspaces after the copy has been done.

This is added into development's product Backlog for future release.

Question 5:  Will all the PDI Solutions add-on get copied over to the production tenant automatically?

Answer 5:  PDI solutions created in the Test Tenant have to be uploaded again in the Production Tenant and scoped in Business Configuration. They are not copied automatically.

Question 6What all data will be copied in this Scenario?

Answer 6:

  • Business Configuration Settings (Scoping and Fine tuning data) - Yes, the settings from particular solution profile you select.
  • Master Data - Yes, full master data
  • Flexibility Data (Customization such as extension fields) - Yes
