ActiveControl can be setup to send various standard and custom email notifications at the appropriate points in the lifecycle of an SAP change, for example when something needs to be tested or approved, or when a transport has had an RC8 import error.

The configuration of these email notifications is detailed in the Email Notifications section of this Administration Guide.

ActiveControl relies upon SAP’s support for SMTP integration with e-mail servers to deliver e-mail notifications, such as changes requiring approval, direct to e-mail clients such as Microsoft Outlook.

As e-mail notifications are sent from the ActiveControl domain controller, ActiveControl only requires this SAP system to have a working SMTP mail server connection. SAP systems based on Web Application 6.20 or later will find that the SAPconnect functionality of SAP comes with built-in support for SMTP mail integration. SAPconnect functionality is administered using SAP transaction SCOT.

An ActiveControl end-user must have a valid Internet e-mail address defined against their user account via transaction SU01 in the Domain Controller system.
