Closing/Opening the Import Queue

Prerequisites

So that an R/3 System being supplied with change requests always remains consistent, it is necessary to specify deadlines by which developers must release their change requests. To prevent requests released after this point in time from being imported, the import queue can be closed.

Change requests which are then released are marked after an end mark in the queue for the next import but one. During the next import, which can also take place at a later point in time, only the requests before the end mark are imported.

Procedure

To close the import queue, proceed as follows:

  1. Call transaction STMS.
  2. Choose Overview ® Imports.
  3. This takes you to the import overview.

  4. Position the cursor on the R/3 System whose import queue you want to close.
  5. Choose Import queue ® Display.
  6. This takes you to the import queue of the selected R/3 System.

  7. Choose Queue ® Close.

The end mark is set and the display refreshed. The requests that will be imported are displayed.

In the import overview, a closed queue is shown by the icon.

To open the import queue, choose Queue ® Open in the import queue of the closed R/3 System.
