Method: setWebAndAppActivityControl

Sets the Web & App Activity control on a service account.

It is necessary to have this setting enabled in order to use call Actions. The setting is originally disabled for service accounts, and it is preserved until set to a different value. This means it only needs to be enabled once per account (and not necessarily once per test), unless it is later disabled.

Returns an error if the caller is not a service account. User accounts can change this setting via the Activity Controls page. See
