Expectations from SAP ChaRM

Hi All,

We are just done with the implementation of ChaRM on our SolMan 7.1. We have also performed a full mock test and everything seems to be in place.

Just want to have your suggestions about the below requirements/expectations from the customer. Please suggest if the below can be fulfilled/possible anyhow through ChaRM:

1) When one person is working on an object/program, other person should be notified of it and should not be allowed to work on it.

2) Linking transports as predecessors and successors to avoid sequence issues

Please help in confirming if these functionalities can be worked out .

    Hello Kapil,

    When ChaRM is fully implemented the problem you state by point 2 is done automatic.

    For point 1 you can activate Cross System Object Locking (Cross-System Object Lock - SAP Solution Manager - SAP Library)

    Best regards,

    Richard Veldhuis

    Thanks Richard..

    I too managed to find this article of "Cross system object locks", quite helpful I must say.

    But do we really have anything like transport sequences in ChaRM, something like predecessors and successors ?

    • Dear Kapil.

      All transport requests are assigned in a CTS Project. When you trigger the command Import on the tasklist (transaction SCMA) you trigger a CTS Project Import, this means, all TR of this CTS Project will be imported (if they stay in the transport queue - of course). This is also called import subset.

      A good benefit: this will improve the import performance! When performing an import subset, all TR will be handled together and duplicates will be ignored. Some import steps will run once for the subset.

      Example: If you are doing single imports - eg: 50 transports with 30 objects this means 1500 objects to be processed. Using a import subset the system will analyze the duplicates and process only the most newer.
