System

ExampleDescription
Source System

SAP System ID on which transports are to be managed. This name is transferred to the interface.

API URL

Therefore the base URL for the SAP connection should look like following example:

Client

Parameter client of the SAP interface.

Web URL

URL that will be stored in the Transport Panel of the linked issue. The URL consists of the API URL (https://<host>:<port>), the client (<client>), a static part and a placeholder for the Transport ID

Transport target

The transport target specifies where a transport is to be imported. This selection supports the SAP Syntax including Target group, Target system or Target system and client.

Authentification
