Hi Expert

    Hi Prakash

    It sounds like you want to mold CHARM into QGM (Quality Gate Management) which wouldn't work and wouldn't make sense. If the end-users want very little governance / options you've better of with QGM in my opinion.

    Another remark though, it is possible to use selective import in CHARM, check this blog post:

    This does only show up if an operator perform the release on production through the task list.

    I tend to leverage both selective and status dependent import (meaning only change documents in a specific status are imported into production ~ thus no longer everything that is in the buffer).

    If you would combine both of the above selective & status dependent, you can still use a background job, that job then only takes into account status dependent settings (see SPRO customizing activity - Define Import Strategy - see the blog post). If the operator would use the task list to perform the import, he would get a pop-up where change documents that are not in the correct status are grayed out and where change documents in the right status can still be deselected if wanted.

    Best regards
