In addition to the standardised Transport of Copies configuration within ActiveControl 8.40 – an additional configuration option as been added to our out-of-the-box TOC offering.
On the back of customer feedback over the last couple years, it is now possible to prevent a TOC being created via ActiveControl on a TOC that was also created by ActiveControl. The principle here is that you should not be creating TOCs of TOCs – if your testing of your initial TOC fails, then you would make the changes to the original unreleased transport, and then create a TOC of that amended original transport. There is not really any situation whereby a Developer or Functional Consultant should need to create a TOC of a TOC.
The prevention of creating TOCs of TOCs is managed via a new configuration option in ActiveControl 8.40
When this new config option is enabled, the user will be presented with an error message in the Windows GUI or WebUI if they attempt to manually create a TOC of a TOC via ActiveControl.
