You want to determine approval steps for QA systems.

Note the following rules:


You have configured at least one QA system.


To determine approval steps for the QA systems in the domain, you have to log on to the domain controller.


  1. In the TMS initial screen, choose This graphic is explained in the accompanying text. The screen System Overview: Domain <Domain name> appears.
  2. Choose This graphic is explained in the accompanying text. The screen Display TMS Configuration: <Domain name> appears.
  3. Under the tab Management you see how many QA systems are configured and who made the last change and when.

    Under QA Approval Procedure you see the names of the configured QA systems and which steps exist. (If the transport routes are client-specific, the column Client is also displayed. If several QA systems are configured, the column System is also displayed.)

  4. Switch to the change mode. To do this, choose Configuration Display « Change.

If you want to add approval steps:

    1. Choose Insert row. By default, the new step has the type Approved by user department.
    2. You can choose another type using the input help. If you choose another type, you receive the default text for it at the same time. You can edit this text.
    3. If you have more than one QA system configured, additional columns are displayed (System and Client). You must use the input help to determine if the additional step is system-/client-specific or global.
  1. Mark the approval step in the column Active that you want to process for the requests of the relevant QA system.
  2. Save your entries.
  3. Distribute the configuration.


You have defined the approval step that is valid for your QA systems.
