Transport requests that do not conflict may be imported automatically, by selecting them in the project development system’s import queue and clicking the Import toolbar button.
If the target option “Create a merge transport request in this system after importing changes” is enabled, Transport Expresso will create a special transport request, called a merge request, in the project development system after the changes of the import run have been imported. The merge request contains all the items that were on the production support transport requests and is used to transport the same changes to the downstream systems of the project development stream.
Transport Expresso automatically associates the merge request with the same tasks (that is, business issues and requirements) as the production support changes. This supports later reconciliation that those business issues and requirements have been applied to the project development stream before the project goes live.
