The current concept for ActiveControl is described earlier in this section, and should be configured by all customers using ActiveControl 7.3.
In older versions of the product, it was also possible to configure screen variants for the Business Task and Transport Form screens using the legacy authorisation configuration. The steps / tables which need to be populated within SAP and the values that are required in order for this functionality to work are as follows:
|Switch on legacy authorisations ‘active’ flag /BTI/TE_AUTHACTV so that the process will be allowed to run.
|Define default standard user profile assigned to users not defined in authorised user table /BTI/TE_STDPRF.
|Define ActiveControl authorisation users in table /BTI/TE_ACCESS. If not specified all users will get the role defined in /BTI/TE_STDPRF.
|Define ActiveControl profile which an ‘object’ is to be assigned in /BTI/TE_USRPROF.
|Define ‘objects’ which activities can be assigned to in table /BTI/TE_AUTHTYPE.
|Define fields groups to be used for grouping fields in table /BTI/TE_FLDGRPT. See steps 8 & 9 for more detail
|Define screen groups to be used for group fields in table /BTI/TE_SCRNGRPT. See step 8 & 9 for more detail.
|Assign standard fields to field / screen groups in table /BTI/TE_STNDFDEF. The fields referred to in this table (Text ID column) are defined in table /BTI/TE_STNDF. The fields can be grouped together into sections, for example, to create a set of display only fields. E.g. Screen group S01 / Field Group S5 could be created and assigned with a group of fields to be made display only.
|Assign custom fields to field / screen groups in table / BTI/TE_CUSTFDEF. Note: To make a custom field editable there needs to be an entry in this table for it. The custom fields are defined in table /BTI/TE_CUSTF. The fields can be grouped together into sections, for example, to create a set of display only fields. E.g. Screen group 01 / Field Group A3 could be created and assigned with a group of custom fields to be made display only.
|Assign field / screen group to a form type (i.e. Task or Transport Form object) ActiveControl profile, via table /BTI/TE_CUSTGRD. Note: This only needs to be configured if certain standard or custom fields are to be made display only. Activity type 2 = Change and 3 = Display only. Entries need to be added for each combination of screen group and field group to be controlled for Tasks and Transport Forms.
