Within ActiveControl there are 3 main data concepts:

  • Projects
  • Business Tasks
  • Transport forms

The relationship between the three concepts is illustrated below:

The typical usage is as follows:

  • Project: Used to group tasks together for business releases and projects. For support there could be general support projects.
  • Business Task: Used to represent Business Requirements, such as CRs, Support tickets, Project Requirements and test defects.
  • Transport Form: Will be created for every SAP transport to be released and moved through the landscapes


  • ActiveControl does not affect the creation of transports in any of the development systems so this can continue as normal.
  • When a transport needs to be deployed to the next system it must be created in ActiveControl as a Transport Form and allocated to a Business Task that represents the change request or support ticket that it relates to. Most customers have their Developers/Functional team populate the Transport Form and link it to the appropriate Business Task.
  • The release of the transport can be done either by the Developer/Functional team – or automatically from within ActiveControl. Nowadays, most customers prefer the latter to ensure a transport does not get released prematurely.
  • Nowadays, many customers create Projects for each of their Daily, Weekly or Monthly releases, as a way of bundling the changes together that are being delivered as part of that release.
