STMS - what controls the target client being "automatically" populated in import buffer?

Hi Folks - we have an NW731 ABAP system w/ several SID's:  LH2 (dev) -> LH5 (test) -> LH1 (prod)

When releasing the LH2K* transport (based on the way we have the STMS graphic/layers configured) it automatically adds the transport to the import buffer on LH5 system.  This is great and what we want.  However, recently we have had issue come up where it's not automatically populating the target client field there (so means no truck icons @ the top, and means users don't like it like this!).  We know one can easily set the target client (Edit -> Set Target Client) and get the truck icons back....but again, users don't like having to do that extra step.

We also, in same transport domain, have another alternate path configured w/ these SID's:  LH3 (dev) -> LH7 (test) -> LH1 (prod)..............

On this alternate path when we release the LH3K* transport it automatically gets added to LH7 import buffer AND the target client is getting populated in that screen.  So this much works exactly like users want.

The only difference between the config in the 2 paths is related to a Charms rollout we are working on....where we were told by consultant to set as follows:

CTC=1

IMPORT_SINGLE_ONLY=1

IMPORT_SINGLE_STRATEGY=1

NO_IMPORT_ALL=1

WORKFLOW_STRATEGY=0

So the LH2/5/1 and LH3 sid's have all these values set as per above.

But LH7 is set slightly different now:

CTC=0

IMPORT_SINGLE_ONLY=1

IMPORT_SINGLE_STRATEGY=1

NO_IMPORT_ALL= <parm not set>

WORKFLOW_STRATEGY=0

QUESTION:  is there a way to leave CTC and NO_IMPORT_ALL set to 1 and still have STMS automatically populate the target client field in LH5 buffer?

Thanks in advance!
