ChaRM Maintenance Cycle


Normally we use single Maintenance cycle for Normal Correction change movements.

Same Maintenance cycle goes through all the phases & we bring back again from Go-live to Development w/o release.

Can we create & keep multiple Maintenance cycles active in same Maintenance project .

When I try to create new Maintenance cycle, system says we can have only one maintenance cycle active at a given point of time, So we need to complete/close the existing Maintenance cycle & then create the New Maintenance cycle. but why is it so ?

Is it not possible to keep active  multiple maintenance cycles say M00000001,M0000002,M0000003 etc.

    Hi PK,

    Charm scenario, you might have more than one maintenance project or implementation project, but one maintenance cycle or implementation cycle per project,  more logical way we can define, if it only one maintenance cycle then only we have one development, one test and one golive at one time on one project, we can execute all the maintenance cycle phases one at a time without any discrete.

    As per standard we couldnt define 2 dev phase for 1 single project??

    More over Charm maintenance cycle phases is highly integrated with the project phase and vice versa, based on ASAP methodlogy...

    But there are lots of alternative ways are there, like separating maintenace track and developement track, sync both using retrofit.

    if can please check with the blogs given by Dolores here
