Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to the target tenant.
  2. Navigate to Adminstrator Work center.
  3. Go to Transport Management View.
  4. Select the Transport Object and open.
  5. Click on the Actions button in the right hand corner and select Activate.

Activation failed message appears "System is on a different release" messages in Show All of Transport logs.


The reason why the activation had failed in target tenant is because the source tenant has already been upgraded to a higher release version (eg: release 2002) whereas in the target tenant, it is still in the previous version (eg: release 1911).

Transport Management does not support transports from one C4C release to another.


You should wait until the target tenant gets upgraded to the same release as source tenant so that both the tenants are in same release version. Once the upgrade is completed you will be able to transport and activate the object sucessfully in the target tenant.
