Default Values for Transport Types in ChaRM

By default both Workbench request and customizing requests are selected when a transport request is created in ChaRM. This documents explains the steps to change the defaults.

Background: In ChaRM when the status of a Change Document  is “In Development” and  a transport request is required to be created.



Both Workbench Request and Customizing Request are checked by default.


Requirement: Neither should be checked by default.


In some cases you we might want the user to choose what type of transport they want to create.  We know that CHARM can create both transport
types and then remove the empty request when moved to test – however it consumes another transport number and potentially skews reporting on the number of open real changes in Development.  We performed this enhancement by request for several customers on Solution Manager 7.1 SP08; will update SCN if we also perform on SP10.
