ActiveControl includes a number of utility programs in the Domain Controller to help administer and operate the system.
These utilities are available only via the SAPGUI.
|System Rebuild report that can be run in the backend to help with system refreshes and copybacks. The report identifies missing transports after a rebuild/refresh based on a specific date – ie to reapply transports that were previously applied in the refreshed system that had not yet reached the source system of the refresh (eg Production). When not run in test mode this can also be used to add transports back into the relevant import queue as well.
|Risk Analysis Report is used to identify transports containing objects contained in a specific set of risk groups. This can be useful for enabling a retrospective analysis on changes made to critical objects / blacklists etc. It is based on current Risk Guard group / template locking functionality.
|This program can be used to do a mass update of existing Business Tasks to specific Deployment and/or Planning statuses
|This program can be used to do a mass approval of Transport Forms in a particular landscape. Please refer to this online Knowledge Article for further information.
|This program can be used to do a mass update of reassining a list of Transport Forms over to a new Business Task (s)
|This program can be used to do an en-masse update of string in URL links for AC attachments
|This program can be used to perform en-masse updates to Approvers assigned to ActiveControl Points.
|This program can be used to perform en-masse updates of the same value to a custom field at Business Task or Transport Form level.
|This program can be used to perform en-masse updates of different values to text custom field(s) at Business Task or Transport Form level.
|This program can be used to perform an en-masse addition of existing Transport Forms to a specific Control Point.
|This program can be used to perform Archiving of ActiveControl data. More details on this program can be found here.
|Report that be used to generate a list of objects contained within a set list of transports.
|This program can be used to do an en-masse switch on/off of Schedules in defined Targets.
|This program can be used to automatically create Business Tasks and Transport Forms for transports imported to specific SAP systems. There is other configuration required to use this functionality – please refer to online Forum for details.
|This program can be used to revert transport sequencing to be based on initial date/time of import, in the event of accidental reimport
|This program can be used to perform an enmasse bulk upload of Tester assignments on Business Tasks.
|This program can be used to perform an en-masse bulk change of Manual Step user assignments.
| /BTI/TE_RBACKUP_DATA_EXP_NEW /
| This utility program enables you to export all ActiveControl data to the file system. These files can then be imported into another Domain Controller system (via program /BTI/TE_RBACKUP_DATA_IMP).
This utility allows you to move your Domain Controller to another system. It can also be used to backup the ActiveControl data if desired or simply rebuild an ActiveControl playpen system.
Please note that this Export program has been superseded by /BTI/TE_RBACKUP_DATA_EXP_V3 since ActiveControl 8.3.
|BTI/TE_RBACKUP_DATA_IMP_NEW / /BTI/TE_UIMPORT_DATA
| This utility program allows you to take the data exported from program /BTI/TE_RBACKUP_DATA_EXP and load these files into a new Domain Controller. This can be used for moving the Domain Controller to a new system or for restoring the Domain Controller from a backup copy.
Please note that this Import program has been superseded by /BTI/TE_RBACKUP_DATA_IMP_V3 since ActiveControl 8.3.
|This program should only be used when two Domain Controller are running in parallel and need to be synchronised. Please consult Basis Technologies support for further information on the use of this program.
|This program can be scheduled to periodically remove (delete) Transport Forms older than a configurable number of days from a particular Control Point location. Please refer to this online Knowledge Article for further details.
|/BTI/TE_RNOTIFICATION_ENGINE / /BTI/TE_UEMAIL_NOTIF
|The notification engine program sends email notifications for Approvals, Imported transports, etc. Further details about running this report can be found in earlier sections of the Administration Guide.
|/BTI/TE_RSYSTEM_REBUILD / /BTI/TE_USYS_REBUILD
| If you ever rebuild a system (e.g. rebuild your test system from your production system), then this report will ensure that ActiveControl is brought back into synch. For example, if transport X was applied to the Test system but not Production and then the Test system was rebuilt from production, ActiveControl needs to be put back in synch so that transport X is added back to the import queue of the Test system).
Important Note: Whenever a system is rebuilt, this utility program should always be run to get ActiveControl back in synch.
|/BTI/TE_RTASK_UPLOAD / /BTI/TE_UTASK_UPLOAD
| This utility program can be run to upload one or more Tasks into the Domain Controller. The format is relatively straight forward and is described in the selection screen of the program. Data is uploaded from the front-end PC from a flat character-separated file (the character is a parameter).
The program should be used during implementations of ActiveControl (during migration) or to take a feed of Task data from an external fault management software.
| This program is used during the migration phase of ActiveControl implementation. It allows “in-flight” transport requests (prior to ActiveControl implementation) to be added to the correct control point (i.e. normally an import queue) in the correct transport path.
Once migrated to the correct control point, the ActiveControl change process can then proceed. Please refer to the program selection-screen for further details of the operation of this report – and also this online Knowledge Article for the overall process of a Data Migration.
| During BW/BI merges some objects are renamed based on the system they are being imported into. This means that the objects added to merge transport of copies also need to be renamed. If there are issues with the merge process this renaming can fail.
Use this program to re-run the renaming process for the relevant merge transports
|/BTI/TE_REVENTS_COFILE_RECON / /BTI/TE_UEVENT_RECON
| If transports are manually “Marked as imported” in ActiveControl the import date and time of the transport may not be based on the actual time and date in the transport logs. This can cause sequencing issues as ActiveControl uses this information when calculating the import sequence.
This report can be used to update the import date and time to the actual values based on the SAP transport logs.
|/BTI/TE_RU002 / /BTI/TE_UASSIGN_ATTR
| This report is used to update the transport attributes for the selected transports. This needs to be run in the relevant development system where the transports reside.
This can be used after system refreshes / copies and when new projects are started to mark older transports as not relevant for the Conflict Analysis (see Housekeeping section of Administration Guide)
|/BTI/TE_RU403 / /BTI/TE_UUP_ORIG_SYS
|This program is used to update the original system TADIR entries for all objects in a system to the current system. It can be used after project go-lives when objects may be still marked as owned by a different system. Only DDIC users are permitted to run this report
|This program is used for caching of open transport requests for performance reasons. Please contact Basis Technologies support for further information on this program.
|This program can be used to update the Planning and Deployment statuses of Business Tasks currently in ActiveControl. This should be run when configuration changes to the statuses have been made to set the statuses correctly for all existing Tasks
|This program can be used during ActiveControl implementations, to help automate some of the analysis required to identify the SAP transports that need to be considered for migration into ActiveControl prior to go-live.
|Can be used to remove Users from /BTI/TE_ROLEUX table if they are not seen via the Business Roles screen because they have been deleted already at SAP level
