Transporting display component of process chains

I recently faced an issue while trying to figure out how to move folder of process chain from one BW system to another. The folders where the process chains are stored in are so called Display Components. There is a dedicated object within the transport objects dedicated to the display components. It is called RSDC = Display Components Tree (means TLOGO object).

There is not much information about how to transport the display components available on internet nor on SAP support site. One of questions on SDN indicates how to setup the transport request mentions following:

However seeing value like RSPC as the object to be transported made me suspicious that all currently available will be moved to target from source to target system. However, that was not the case.

What needs to be done is to put the process chain that is located with the display component that has to be moved. In such a situation, the process chain will be moved to the target system along with the display component.

Technically the display component are located in table RSCOMPTLOGO.
