Configure SAP Transport Management System to connect from Microsoft Sentinel

This article shows you how to configure the SAP Transport Management System in order to successfully deploy the Microsoft Sentinel Solution for SAP.

SAP's Transport Management System is normally already configured on production systems. However, in a lab environment, where CRs often haven't been previously installed, configuration may be required.

If you get this error running the STMS_IMPORT transaction while preparing your SAP environment, you'll need to configure the Transport Management System.
