Currently, we follow the standard SAP configuration process, which enables us to open a live system to make changes. The actual change only takes seconds, but we are running into an issue with compliance approvals (internal controls that we have in place). We are thinking about turning this process into a transportable one and/or creating a custom transaction that will allow us to create URLs quickly in a live system.
Here is the current IMG path process that we follow:
IMG --> SRM --> SRM Server --> Master Data --> Define ext. web service
I presume that the Supplier/Internal Catalog might have a "development" and a "production" URL. So what you want to do is name the Web service in development as "XYZ Supplier – DEV" and the one in production as "XYZ Supplier – PRD", then transport both. In "production," ensure that in the organization structure only the "PRD" catalogs are enabled for the users.
