Before an SAP transport request can be transported using ActiveControl, a Transport Form must be created for the transport request.
In most organisations, the SAP Transport Owner (ie Developer / Functional / Security team resource) is responsible for populating the Transport Form for their own transport.
The Transport Form is a simple screen consisting of a few text and dropdown fields. It can typically be completed in 10-15 seconds, most commonly in the SAPGUI, but alternatively also in the ActiveControl Web Platform.
The Transport Form is used to document and categorise the changes made, so that Approvers, Testers and Auditors can immediately understand what the Transport is for. It consists of several standard tabs, each containing various standard fields and other functionality. It is possible to add custom fields to the Transport Form via configuration. It is also possible to make most of the standard fields or custom fields optional or mandatory via configuration.
More detailed information on Transport Forms can be found in the Managing Transport Forms section later in this User Guide.
