Scenarios:
There are multiple development streams. If I fix a defect in one dev stream, 
I want to deliver that to the selected number of Dev streams; which could be around 5+.
Currently, I can do this but, for each stream I need to repeat the steps.

Questions:
1. is there a way in RTC to deliver changes to more than one stream using flow target at the same time?
2. if not, are there any reason of not supporting it?
3. Can I do some custom development to enhance this feature?

I tried looking at the thread but no clear answers are there:

The "All Flows" mode in the Pending Changes view can help if you want to deliver to multiple streams. This mode can be turned on in the "Team" --> "Jazz Source Control" --> "Changes" preference page by selecting "Flow targets" --> "Show all (advanced)". You would first add each stream you want to deliver as a flow target, and then turn this mode on. Once done, the Pending Changes view will show one component node per flow target. This way you can easily pick which streams you want to deliver to.

Since the "deliver all" action is disabled when you select "Show all", I believe you would have to manually multi-select all the components you want to deliver.   If that is correct, and you have a non-trivial number of components in each stream, it would probably be faster/easier to just use the standard view, and change the flow target to each of the streams you want to deliver to.

I'd suggest scripting it with the scm command line ... I don't think there currently is any good way to do this with the GUI.

There is an enhancement open to address this issue: https://jazz.net/jazz/resource/itemName/com.ibm.team.workitem.WorkItem/352855

 The work item referenced above would not solve this question. That work item is a defect related to not auto-delivering unresolved changes; and is not related to delivering to multiple flow targets at once.
