The SAP Transport Panel is designed to link your SAP with your Jira instance, so you can manage your SAP transports easily and gain maximum transparency throughout the entire development process. In order for this to work we had to develop two components for the interface. One for SAP, one for Jira. The SAP component was developed by NTT DATA, a worldwide operating SAP Partner. The Jira component was developed by greenique, an Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner. Together they form an interface (SAP Transport Panel), so your SAP and Jira instances can communicate. However, both components need a proper implementation on your systems which will be done by NTT DATA and greenique to ensure the functionality of the app.
With SAP Transport Panel creating and releasing a transport follows status changes of a Jira issue. REST calls to an interface enable control of the transport in SAP. These calls are attached to a individual Jira Workflow. This enables you to automatically create a transport for a issue, when you move your Jira issue along your workflow and get the necessary transport automatically in SAP. In addition you can link several transports to one issue. This makes the creation of a transport as easy as drag and drop. Moving your Jira issue along your Kanban board will create or release a transport depending on the corresponding status.
The preferred workflow from greenique provides a solution for the creation, release and the automatic transition of issues, when a transport is released on the productive system.
