transportRequestUploadSOLMAN

Uploads a specified file into a given transport via Solution Manager

Description

Uploads the specified file into the given transport request via Solution Manager. The mandatory change document ID points to the associate change document item. The application ID specifies how the file needs to be handled on server side.

Usage

We recommend to define values of step parameters via config.yml file. In this case, calling the step is reduced to one simple line.
Calling the step can be done either via the Jenkins library step or on the command line.

Jenkins Pipeline

Prerequisites

  • You have an SAP Solution Manager user account and the roles required for uploading. See SAP Solution Manager Administration.
  • You have a change document to which your transport request is coupled.
  • You have a transport request, which is the target container of the upload.
  • You have installed the Change Management Client with the needed certificates. See Change Management Client.

Change Management Client

The Change Management Client (CM Client) handles the access to SAP Solution Manager. The CM Client is a software running under Linux, which can initiate basic change management tasks in the Solution Manager as well as in the CTS. The client is used by default as a Docker image, but can also be installed as a command line tool.

Certificates

It is expected that the Solution Manager endpoint is secured by SSL and sends a certificate accordingly. The CM Client verifies the certificate. If the publisher of this certificate is unknown, the connection will be rejected. The CM Client uses the underlying JDK procedures for the verification. Accordingly, the issuer must be specified in the truststore of the JDK.

Create a clone of the image and add the necessary certificate to its truststore in case you use the Docker image. Extend the truststore of the environment with the necessary certificate in the case you use the immediate command line tool.

Specifying the Change Document and Transport Request

The target of the upload is a transport request and the associated change document. Both objects are identified by identifiers (ID). transportRequestUploadSOLMAN allows you to set IDs by parameter. Alternatively, you can pass the IDs through the Common Pipeline Environment. For example, by performing a step that generates the IDs or obtains them differently. See transportRequestDocIDFromGit and transportRequestReqIDFromGit

By Step Parameter

A parameterized pipeline allows to specify the IDs with the launch of the build instead of entering them statically into the pipeline.

transportRequestUploadSOLMAN(
    script: this,
    changeDocumentId: ${CHANGE_DOCUMENT_ID},
    transportRequestId: ${TRANSPORT_REQUEST_ID},
    ...
)

The Jenkins pipeline input step allows to specify the IDs at runtime of the pipeline.

def ids = input( message: "Upload?",
    parameters: [
        string(name: 'CHANGE_DOCUMENT_ID',description: 'Change Document ID'),
        string(name: 'TRANSPORT_REQUEST_ID',description: 'Transport Request ID')
    ]
)

transportRequestUploadSOLMAN(
    script:this,
    changeDocumentId: ids['CHANGE_DOCUMENT_ID'],
    transportRequestId: ids['TRANSPORT_REQUEST_ID'],
    ...
)

Common Pipeline Environment

With OS Piper you can use the steps transportRequestDocIDFromGit and transportRequestReqIDFromGit to obtain the changeDocumentId and transportRequestId values from your Git commit messages. The steps enter the IDs into the commonPipelineEnvironment, in turn, the upload step transportRequestUploadSOLMAN picks them up from there.

transportRequestDocIDFromGit( script: this )
transportRequestReqIDFromGit( script: this )
transportRequestUploadSOLMAN( script: this, ... )
