It has always been possible within ActiveControl to associated a Transport Form to more than one Business Task, however this was legacy functionality that is generally not recommended, and does not work well with some of the newer functionalities such as Partial Testing (ie the ability to sign off test queues on individual Transport Forms) and the Rules Engine.
In the past, many Customers that didn’t want to let their users purposely or accidentally link a Transport Form to multiple Business Tasks implemented a user exit 0010 that would present a message to the user if they attempted to do it, and prevent them from saving the Transport Form if it has more than one Business Task associated to it.
Since Basis Technologies generally do not recommend to our customers to link a Transport Form to more than one Business Task anyway – ActiveControl 8.50 introduces a new Windows GUI configuration option to enable Administrators to prevent it from being done, without having to enable a user exit solution.
Figure: New ‘Prevent Transport Form being linked to more than one Business Task’ configuration option in the Windows GUI
Figure: Error message ‘This Transport Form cannot be linked to more than one Business Task’ will be presented to user if the new configuration option is switched on
The new configuration option is switched on via the Other tab within the Windows GUI configuration screen.
