Yes, We – developers – are end users in the context of transport management. We use variety of transactions on the surface, like ADT, SE80, SE09, STMS etc. to push our changes to test and production systems. We not developed that transactions, which manage changes variety of object types in the ABAP,BSP repository, DDIC etc, and their transport.
Transport requests, right ? Spending decades with Transport Organizer (SE09…) and import queues (STMS), standard extensions to prevent release with special magic logic. Pretty familiar for all of us. Companies with development guidelines, include variety of rules, what should be the proper description for a transport request. Hunting the right request based on the name. Using external tools to administer business requirements and map corresponding requests. Developers put references in the source code based on predefined rules.
