Manual Activities and Non-Transport Deployments can be used within ActiveControl to manage non-transportable changes and activity whilst still enforcing an approval and audit process.

Manual Activities are manual work that does not relate to a specific transport. eg Locking Users at the start of a Project deployment. Manual activities generate a Manual Step against a dummy blank transport. This manual step needs to be “completed” at the appropriate point(s) in the Path as an audit that the work was performed.

Non-Transport Deployments are items that are to be done via scripts on either SAP or non-SAP systems. eg the deployment of a javascript file can be performed in a user exit as part of the import process. Non-Transportable Deployments also generate a dummy blank transport but do NOT have underlying Manual Steps. The only way to move them past an Import Queue is essentially do to a Mark As Imported OK on the dummy transport form, either manually or as part of a user exit coding.

Creation of Manual Activities / Non-Transport Deployments

Manual Activities and Non-SAP Deployments are created via the ‘Add’ button within the Transport Forms tile.

You must give the manual item a description, and then populate a Transport Form for the item.

The Manual Activity or Non-Transport change is essentially handled as a manual step on a ‘dummy’ transport which does not get imported anywhere.
