cCTS for ChaRM

Hello Experts,

We have upgraded to SP10 and on the way to implement ChaRM with cCTS. We are trying to map the clusters to our landscape.

We got the first level of understanding from

We have a dual track landscape which is as below for production support:

Now how many clusters do we need to have for support?

This is answered by the "how to guide" as 7 and also we understand two different projects are required (this is coved in page 43 & 44 of how to doc.).

Can any one give more clarity on how to connect between the two projects as per page 44 in "how to guide", for the above landscape ?

And we also have a project track (orange box) which follows route of DEV - QAS - PPD - PRD and as part of cutover we have to update maintenance track with the project changes using ChaRM so how to go about this?

Need experts support.

    Hi Praveen,

    First cCTS is advance version of CTS and ChaRM is always dependent upon CTS but even with Central CTS the entire workflow for ChaRM or the functionality will remain the similar

    means you use same transaction type SMCR, SMCG,SMMJ SMHF etc or same status workflow

    as far as dual track is considered check the dolores blog which will help you to understand how charm support it in dual track

    also below link

    above will help you to understand the retrofit feature which is used by ChaRM to maintain consistency across multiple development

    Hello Prakhar,

    To debate more on this for better solution.

    forget that i have 2 track and i have all 7 system in one track in that case will the above solution not work ?

    If it workes in one track it will also works in 2 tracks as well becasue tracks are no where represented in SolMan its only our logical drawing in sequence. The only diff. could be there i may have created only one logical component and here i am creation more. But if you can see the bolg. there are several ways of mapping systems and logical componets.

    Its not necessary that we follow every time only standard process or what ever is defined in some blog. or some docs. we have to gain knowledge and start using it based on the requirement.

    Any way have started working towards this will keep posted on the developments.

    Hi Praveen,

    I am currently working on same landscape as yours.

    You need one Maintenance project(BAU) & one Implementation project(Project).

    Changes in Maintenance track can be retofitted to Project track to keep track in sync while changes created in project track will move to entire landscape.

    Also for cCTS you need to create 7 clusters for each system.

    If you have any query then please let me know.
