Adding more systems to ChaRM


We're currently using ChaRM for our ECC system only. We have a three tier landscape (Dev > UAT > Prod).

We are now wanting to add BI and SRM to ChaRM.

We have created an iBase and setup system landscape for BI and SRM (again, it will be Dev > UAT > Prod). For maintenance, can we use the same maintenance project by adding a new logical component? And does this mean we have to create a second maintenance cycle for BI? And then a third one for SRM? Or can we have all three systems running off the same maintenance cycle?

    Read this blog question no 6,

    where clearly states you shouldnt add or remove logical comp from the active MC, hence close the current one and open the new one.

      Hi Shaun

      As you now have found out ChaRM is complex.😉

      Concerning your question regarding iBase.

      You have created a project and added logical Component. When you then create an Maintenance Cycle it knows all the iBases for the Logical components.

      Approving an Change Request with information of one iBase just add the Maintencance cycle to the Change Request .

      Working with the corrections gives you now the option to choose differenct logical components, so you can create a Transport Request in the ECC and a different one in the BI but the are both linked to the same Correction.

      The iBase is the component used by "HelpDesk" to identify the specific client in our enviroment so it is needed .

      The Maintenance Cycle connects the iBases for all you clients, so that you can access them from the correction .

      And yes please mess around with this in a Maintenance Solution Manager ( just remember your landscape has to be the same set-up as your production in order to get the best understanding )

    Thanks everyone.

    Still not exactly sure how we'll set this up...but I think you've given me enough guidance to know how this work.
