It is possible to force transports containing specific critical standard or custom objects to stop for an additional approval in the ActiveControl workflow. This feature sits on top of the existing Skipping and Risk Guard functionalities.
|1|| Add the following four entries to /BTI/TE_EXITC table:
|2|| Create Risk Groups in table /BTI/TE_RISKG for each grouping of approvals that you want. For example:
BT9001 – Security Objects
BT9002 – Basis Objects
BT9003 – Finance Objects
|3||Create a new Risk Level for these objects in /BTI/TE_RISKL.|
|4||Add entries in table /BTI/TE_RISKGOB for each object you want to stop for additional approval. Use RISK LEVEL defined in previous step.|
|5||Add a new Control Point (ie Inbox or Outbox) where you want the additional approval to occur if the transport contains the objects defined in previous step.|
|6||Add entries in table /BTI/TE_RISKUSER for who you want to be able to approve each Risk Group.|
|7||Add the Approvers in the ActiveControl Windows GUI configuration against the required target/control point.|
|8|| Create new Skipping Rules in /BTI/TE_SKIPCP.
(i) Add Skipping Rules for all Transport Form ‘Types’ to skip new Control Point.
(ii) Add Skipping Rules for all Transport Form ‘Types’ to NOT SKIP when they contain the Risk Groups created above – by adding in RISK_LEVEL that you defined in earlier step.
