ActiveControl includes some Transport of Copies functionality for customers that use this as part of their existing Change & Release processes. This requires some pre-requisite configuration that needs to be done by your local ActiveControl Administrator. Assuming the configuration has been done, right mouse-clicking on transport(s) in the Windows GUI should present a “New Transport of Copies” option.

Full will create a TOC of all objects in the selected transport(s)
Delta will create a TOC containing objects that were added to the selected transport(s) since the last TOC was created
Task allows you to create a TOC of a specific SAP task within the transport
Production this can be used to create a packaging TOC containing the objects in multiple transports. (for the purpose of deploying a single TOC to production, instead of all the original transports.
Full, Delta and Task options are intended for customers using TOCs between Development and the first Test system in their landscape. Production option is intended for creating deployment TOCs to Production only.
After choosing the TOC that you want to create, you will be presented with a screen where you can choose the Business Task against which the TOC should go. In most scenarios, you would want to assign the TOC to the same Business Task as the original Transport, to keep them together.

From here the TOC will be created, and the TOC transport request number will be presented on-screen.

The TOC that have been created against a source transport are visible via the [Associated TOCs] tab on the Transport Form (this tab will not be visible if no TOCs created).
