There could be multiple scenarios in SAP CHARM where you would need to manually move the transports in the SAP systems due to various issues in CHARM change documents.
If there is a requirement to create a transport request in the development system directly or modify a transport request, you might come across the below error while saving the transport request in development system.
You cannot assign any requests to project
Message no. CTSPRJ043
