Simple select the correct application are indicated by the FICO consultant (this area can be FI, CO, etc). Select Generate validations and Generate Substitutions. Now execute.

You will need to run program RGUGBR00 locally on the system after the transport import is done.

Also after a system copy program RGUGBR00 must be run again.

  1. Hello… I am transporting ONLY a substitution rule with many steps and some of them have also USER EXITS not only constants…
    Why then only select generate substitutions…
    How about generate rules usage, substitution usage and generate rules itself ?? Should not these be selected as well ? Thanks

    1. Hi Fernando

      You need to select what you have changed and want to transport indeed.
