When a transport form is created, it will be placed in the first configured control point within the ActiveControl workflow.
If you are an approver for this task/transport, you will receive an e-mail from ActiveControl telling you that there is a task/transport for you to approve.
This approval can be performed either in the Windows GUI or in the Web UI.
A General Analysis will be automatically performed during approval and import. The general analysis includes all the core analysis functions such as:
- Check Dependencies (0030):
Is there a dependency on another transport that has yet to be imported?
Is the transport form attached to a task but not all the requests in that task have been imported yet or are not being approved now?
- Overtake and Regression Checks (0031):
Does the transport contain an older version of any objects that have been previously imported into the target system?
Does the transport contain a newer version of any objects that also appear on older transports that have not yet been imported into the target system?
- Check Locked Transport Forms (0032):
Is the transport form locked?
- Check Authorisations (0033):
Is the user authorised to perform the approval?
- Check Transport Release (0034):
For import queues is the transport released?
- Conflict Analysis (0035):
Does the transport contain objects that have also been changed on the target system?
- Check Merge Origin (0036):
For merges check that the origin of the transports that make up the merge request is the same system
- Check Manual Steps (0037):
Is there a dependency on any manual steps that have not been marked as complete?
The General Analysis will also perform any other configured ShiftLeft analysis types that have been marked as mandatory for that control point.
