Charm and Transport Sequencing

Hi,

I would like to ask on how can Charm assist in the following Transport Sequence scenario?

I have created 4 new TR numbers (example):

TR0001

TR0002

TR0003

TR0004

Then I have assigned the change to the TRs and I would like to transport based on the following sequence:

TR0003

TR0001

TR0004

TR0002

Kindly advice on how do I make sure that Charm could Transport correctly as I'm aware that Charm will auto-sort the TR numbers by ascending number order. Thanks in advance.

Best Regards

    Hi Jeffrey ,


    Sequence is depend on the time when you release these TR's and not by ascending number order.

    This is more Transport System behavior.


    So if you want to change sequence from

    TR0001

    TR0002

    TR0003

    TR0004

    To

    TR0003

    TR0001

    TR0004

    TR0002

    Just release them dependent start from TR0003, TR0001, TR0004, TR0002.

    But if you already Relesead them, if this is Urgent Change document you can import sepratly with you sequence.

    For Normal Changes you may use Preliminary Import.

      Hi Dan,

      Based on our testing, it is based on the TR creation date where the smaller TR number will be transported 1st.

      It seems like Charm is sorting and transporting based on the smaller Change Document first.

      Within the Change Document it will transport the smaller TR first.

      So I wonder if there is a method to transport, for example, CH1K900111 first?

      RFC Change Doc TR Created Seq Dev Seq Release Seq Transported Seq 8000003243 8000003245 CH1K900108 3 4 5 1 CH1K900113 5 1 2 2 8000003244 8000003246 CH1K900104 1 5 3 3 CH1K900106 2 3 1 4 CH1K900111 4 2 4 5 Conclusion: Transport Base on document created

      Thanks

      Best Regards
