ActiveControl 8.0 introduces a new user hook capability at the point of performing an Add to Import Queue 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 reimport a transport to. Eg.
(1) In a four system landscape DEV > QA > PREPROD > PROD, if a Transport is sitting in the PROD import queue, a customer might want to allow re-import to Production system but not to the QA system
(2) In a 1: Many landscape, involvinga 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 the import queue of the parallel QA/Production branches.
Two new user exit samples have been created, as follows:
|Add to Import Queue (Validation) (Exit Identifier 0860)||This user exit can be used to validate the allowed Import Queue locations whilst trying to perform an Add to Import Queue action in the Windows GUI or Web UI.|
|Add to Import Queue (Change Locations) (Exit Identifier 0862)||This user exit can be used to alter the list of locations you can choose whilst trying to perform an Add to Import Queue in the Windows GUI or Web UI.|
