It has always been possible within ActiveControl to pre-populate the Transport Form [Type] and [Group] fields, based on the last values selected by the user when previously populating a Transport Form.
Some customers did not like to prepopulate these fields, as they felt it was not always a given that the User was always creating Finance (for example) related Transports, or indeed always creating Workbench or Customising transports. And they thought there were more likely be wrong data if they did not force the Developer or Functional consultant to populate the fields each time.
But at the same time, they also highlighted to Basis Technologies that it would make more sense if the [Type] field was populated based on the SAP information (eg Customising, Workbench, Transport of Copies etc)
For this reason, ActiveControl 8.40 introduces a new standard User Exit that can be switched on and configured so that the Transport Form [Type] is populated based on the standard SAP information about the transport.
The following configuration is required in the Domain Controller to enable this functionality.
1. Enable user exit /BTI/TE_EXIT_AUTOADDTFTYP_0610 via table /BTI/TE_EXITC
2. Configure entries in table /BTI/TE_TVARV for the parameter TRANSPORT_FORM_TYPE_0610.
‘LOW’ = the transport type as defined in table E070 field TRFUNCTION
‘HIGH’ = be the type id as defined in table /BTI/TE_TYPE
