    I see this is a manual activity.  There should be always a system owner who is having authorization, has to go to STMS_QA and approve it maually.  Can we automate this process? by any standard program of Z program where in I give the transport requests in a selection screen and execute it, then it is approved automatically.

    is there any chance to restrict users from approving both steps?

    As of now, I’m able to release as transport owner – even if I’m not the owner.

    Thank you for the very good explanation.

    An additional question: Is it possible to rule the approval by “sap IMG Projects”? For example, standard changes (very low impact on customizing and development) should have only one approval, all other changes (for examples releases, projekt-changes, incidents …) two approvals. The changes are collectet and categorized by Projects.

    Thank you!
