You can also opt to transport request to a SAP system. In that case, you need to ensure that your export type option is Export to SAP system as opposed to Export to Local File.
The procedure for exporting a transport request in SAP is as follows:
Select Endpoint >> Available Endpoint Aliases >> Add >> Export
The Select Endpoint option is one that enables you to search for existing RFC destinations. If the appropriate RFC destination does not exist, then it needs to be created first, as previously stated.
The Available Endpoint Aliases is the option that will provide a drop down list of existing RFC destinations. You will then be able to select the one you want at this stage.
By selecting the Add option, your selected RFC destination will be added as the target destination for your transport request.
In the event that you will be dealing with ABAP systems, your preconfigured RFC destination will have its forms already filled.
If there is at least one ABAP form involved, then your next stage will be the ABAP Package field. At this stage, you will be required to enter the ABAP package. This package should contain the assigned objects whose transport request would have been specified at the beginning as was previously stated. In non-ABAP systems, this stage would be missing.
After you have completed the Add stage and all the subsequent mini-stages, you need to select the Export option.
When you do that, your created transport request in SAP would be exported to the system in which it was meant to go.
