ActiveControl 8.0 introduces a new user hook capability at the point of performing an ‘Add to Control Point’ in the Windows GUI or Web UI. This has been added for customers wanting to introduce additional control and governance about what systems a user is actually allowed to move a Transport Form back to in the workflow. Eg.
(1) In a four system landscape DEV > QA > PREPROD > PROD, if a Transport is sitting in the PROD Imbox, a customer might only allow the transport moved back one or two locations, but not right the way back to DEV or QA, to avoid unnecessary reimports to those systems.
(2) In a 1: Many landscape involving a single Development system but multiple parallel QA and Production systems, a customer might want to prevent users from adding a Transport Form from one QA/Production branch to a location in one of the parallel QA/Production Branches.
Two new user exit samples have been created, as follows:
|/BTI/TE_EXIT_SAMPLE_0861||This user exit can be used to validate the allowed Add to Control Point locations whilst trying to perform an Add to Control Point action in the Windows GUI or Web UI.|
|/BTI/TE_EXIT_SAMPLE_0863||This user exit can be used to alter the list of locations you can choose whilst trying to perform an Add to Control Point Queue in the Windows GUI or Web UI.|
