Is it possible to store a value obtained in white balance from a color chart with a pipette and automatically transfer it to other images? If I use the pipette to click on a new file with the color card, the saved white balance information should be automatically transferred to this file.

You can copy the edit settings and select what you want to copy. Then you can paste these chosen settings onto another photo.

Yes, I know. What I'am looking for somthing like an magic wand to touch the white field on my color chart to change it . For example, I want to make first automaticlly the white ballancing by touching  the white field on th card. But I neeod for all my raw files in this serie a value in exposure of 92 % in red 92% green 92 blue. I want to save this value and transfer this autmatically by touching the white field on my color chart in my picture. So every new picture gets an autmatic white balance and the value 92 % in rgb. Otherwise I have to set the value in every pictue manually by th slider.

No, not currently possible. It sounds like you're basically looking for a target value clipboard, so in other usage, you might click on a bridesmaids dress on one photo, and when you click on the dress in another photo, it's automatically adjusted to match the same color? Or skin tones, the same?

Yes something like that. 
I work in the area of ​​art reproduction and need an automatic workflow
to be able to transfer a defined tone value and the automatic white balance
to the subsequent pictures in the series. The exposure varies
with each shot, as there are smaller and larger images.
I think of the feature in Photoshop.
With tonal correction I can save a default value and automatically
apply to other files.
I would like to do that in Lightroom because I work with RAW files
