The default sequencing of transports within ActiveControl is based on the release date/time of the transports.
Dependencies can also be manually set between Transports. This is useful if transports have been released in the wrong order and you want to force ActiveControl to import them in a specific order – or in the more common scenario – where you want to set cross-system dependencies between transports. For example, when a BW transport has to be imported only after a specific ECC transport has been imported.
Dependencies can be defined in the SAP GUI, Web UI and Windows GUI via the [Advanced Options] tab.
