How to handle bulk imports in CHaRM w/o manual intervention


We have a question about ChaRM, Retrofit and Cutover.

As we perform Phase shifts in ChaRM, or execute a Retrofit or Cutover we see the following problem:

Import in bulk cannot be done because of all kind of manual interventions in the import queue, documented in CookBooks.

For example :

Import SIDK900123. Activate some objects in the target system (manually). Delete some things in the target system (manually). Then reactivate something in the system (manually). Now import SIDK900124, if the manual activities did not take place, the imports get returncode 8 or higher.

The import cannot continue.

How can we handle this in the ChaRM scenarios ?

We use a OTAP landscape for maintenance, a DIM landscape for projects, we use Retrofit, we use Cutover.

We have landscapes (Maintenance and Projects) for ECC, Netweaver BI, Netweaver PI and Enterprise portals.

Until now java transports are not in scope.

In fact we use everything related to ChaRM.

Thanks in advance,
