Air gap is a requirement within some organisations with secure networks whereby they cannot allow changes to be electronically transmitted from development to production systems. It is typically found in industries such as the public sector, aerospace and defense, exploration and energy.
In an SAP context, it generally means that following Development or QA or Regression testing, the SAP transport files need to be downloaded to some external media (disk, USB drive, DMZ) and physically moved and uploaded to the production system side of the airgap for import there.
ActiveControl 8.0 includes functionality to support this Air Gap scenario.
Details on how to setup Air Gap can be found in the Administration Guide and in online FAQ articles. Basis Technologies would recommend this functionality is implemented with formal support from a Basis Technologies solution specialist.
