The S/4HANA Migration Cockpit is available from S/4HANA Release 1610 in the OnPremise
As it is the first Version, i don’t have too much expectations, but i am sure we will see very
interesting updates in the future.

Basically, it is a Web Based Tools to migrate Legacy Data into S/4HANA. It allows to Download
predefined Excel Sheet-Templates, so you can “easily” extract legacy data into this format and
upload in S/4HANA by using the Migration Cockpit. Basic Mapping Functionality is provided (e.g.
Map Unit of Measure Codes and so on) but don’t expect too much here yet.
Target group seems to be smaller and medium businesses (SMB). The handling of the Import
Process and Validations are made very easy (“cloud style”)
To Import the Data, the SAP Standard BAPIs are used. There is an error Log provided with
information on Warnings or Errors.

As there is already a number of Standard Objects Available (see below)
for the creation of additional Migration Objects see also my Blog

then you can activate one or multiple migration objects .


Now Open the Migration Object you can look at the documentation of the migration object .


you can Download an Excel Template. Now fill the Excel with you data and Upload into the Migration Cockpit .

select and activate the File now start Transfer (migrate to S/4 Hana): First the Data is validated .

click on close .when finished 100 %.

now you can see the notifications (warnings/error messages): Choose next to perform the Value Mappings (Convert Values) .

you have to confirm or add a value mapping: .if a value from the excel sheet is found for the first time.

enter a new Value (EV_xxx) and/or click on confirm .

now click on next for the simulation and then next for the import (same procedure as validation) all actions are performed in background (as a batch-job/SM37). but you can wait until process is finished 100 % and then immediately see the results or let it run in background and come back later. Excel Format The Excel Templates are in XML Format .

they should be <null> otherwise the ss:Index gets confused and the Values are linked to the wrong columns when importing into the migration cockpit.scn. The BAPI used for the Data Inport can be found in Transaction LTMOM . but ABAP Debugging skills are useful for the Root Cause Analysis in cases where the Error Log isn’t enough. even if they are in correct order Import Processing It helps if you are familiar with the Standard BAPI Structures and SAP Input Data (for example how to create a material master) Abap Skills are not required.com/en-us/library/aa140066(v=office.sap.aspx https://wiki.<Cell ss:Index=”14″ ss:StyleID=”s79″><Data ss:Type=”String”>10</Data></Cell> you can find several documentations in the internet: https://msdn.10).microsoft.com/wiki/display/Snippets/XML+TAGS+simplifies+Excel+Download i faced problems with ‘SPACE’ for empty columns.


you can set an external Breakpoint (external as the import is always performed by a batch job) . i can only add customer fields.you can also see how the input fields are mapped. currently i was not able to change the standard mappings.
