ActiveControl has long offered the ability for customers to upload file attachments and/or create URL links to such attachments into ActiveControl.
Many customers use this as a way of ensuring appropriate document is accessible via the Test Results, Business Task or Transport Form screens – depending on any existing document management solutions and processes within the organisation.
Several customers had requested the ability to restrict the process to one or the other – and indeed to prevent the removal of already uploaded files or URL link – generally because uploading documentation into ActiveControl was not part of their agreed processes, or because they wanted to avoid a detrimental impact of large files being added into their Domain Controller SAP system as that would have a significant impact on the sizing footprint of ActiveControl, or because they were concerned about the audit risk of existing documentation being deleted by users.
As sich, these capabilities have been added using new authorisation objects in ActiveControl 8.3:
ADDURL : allows ability to attach URL
ADDFILE : allows ability to attach file
REMOVEATTACHMENT : ability to remove selected file/URL
