One of the most important deliverables of ActiveControl Web Platform 9.10 is the Global View screen that aims to deliver and improve on the existing ‘tree structure’ screen seen within the Windows GUI.
This tree structure view is typically preferred by certain user personas such as SAP Change Managers (as they want to see a holistic, overall view of all change being delivered on the SAP estate) – but in some instances, is actually used by all users at some of Basis Technologies’ customers.
The Global View screen is accessed in the Web Platform via the ‘Global View’ tile. Accessing the Global View requires new authorisation [Y_TEUSER] – VIEWGLOBALVIEW, which has been added to our out-of-the-box Change Manager, Basis and Administrator roles. Basis Technologies have deliberately not added this new authorisation to all standard ActiveControl roles, as we know that many of our customers will not want all users to have access to the Global View. Therefore for customers that do want other user personas within their organisation to access the Global View screen within the Web PLatform, a customer Z role will be required.
