The configuration of ActiveControl in the Windows GUI can only be maintained by users who have been defined as a ActiveControl Administrator. Authorised ActiveControl Administrators can access the configuration screen after logging on with the ActiveControl Windows GUI, by selecting the menu item Tools > Configuration.
High level Summary of Windows GUI Configuration
Within ActiveControl, each system in your SAP system landscape is defined as a target. The target defines the SAP system and the group of clients within that system that changes should be imported into, along with the way in which transports should be imported to that system. The team members who can approve changes are defined for each target, providing the flexibility to have different approvers in your different SAP systems.
Targets are assigned to Transport Paths via a simple drag and drop user interface. The transport path specifies the target systems that assigned transport requests will be imported into, the order of those imports and whether changes need to be approved and tested. The appropriate transport path must be selected when a Transport Form is completed for a transport request, however ActiveControl is usually configured to automatically select the correct transport path based on the Development system in which the transport has been created.
Transport Schedules can be defined to automatically import transport requests into target systems. A transport schedule defines the times when ActiveControl will import transport requests that are queued for import via a background job.
