Unable to see XBO extension fields in production tenant!

Hi Experts,

We have recently uploaded and activated a solution in a production system. This solution contained a BO extension and extension fields which were extended to the relevant BO screens. After scoping the solution in the system the fields we have added to the screens are not visible! My guess is the fault lies with the way I set up the BAC elements, I just added a simple Business Option with a simple scoping question. I am not sure if I needed to add the extension content to some sort of scoping object.


The solution content is as follows:

The BAC Element has been set up as follows:

This is a very frustrating problem, again, my only guess is that I did not add some content to some configuration element. Do I need to create a BCO or something? Your help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks,
Alexander Ludwig

    Did u add the fields in BCtools implementation project WCVIew screen?

    Is the user u r checking has the view assgined?

    Hey Alexander,

    we deployed several AddOns with extension fields on standard screens "only" with a Business Option.

    So it should basically work.

    I would also suggest to check the user rights assignments.

    Kind Regards

    • Hi Alexander,

      OK I checked again and it is not necessary to create and assign a WCV in your case.

      How did you activate the solution? Via fine-tuning or in a change project?

      (There is a check box "visible in fine-tuning" in the bac-element to make your business option available there)

      Kind Regards

    What is the status of the Implementation Project?

    Hello Alexander,

    I am facing exactly the same issue !

    I already pushed several solutions with Extension fields in this Production tenant, but the new solution I did push yesterday just does not show up !!!

    My settings:

    - Simple Business Option, as you did, without fine-tuning : which is working for all my past solutions,

    - I only have a single extension field which extends the BO Sales Order and enhance the SalesOrder OWL, I cannot make this easier (I already did that actually and it worked)

    - Solution successfully deployed and data update completed

    - Solution scoped through Edit scope as the Prod Tenant is Not Live Yet

    - And yes, as usual, I am using a business user, NOT my PDI one

    My two guesses:

    - We need to scope the solution through a Change project (but I do not get why all my other solutions have been previously scoped without it and are working fine !). But as the implementation project is not yet live we should not need to go through a change project.

    - In my use case, perhaps my new solution extending Sales Order is getting in the way of a past solution which also extends the Sales Order BO and the Sales Order OWL

         * But I do not understand why it is working fine in the test system, but does not show up in the prod system

    I hope someone have a clue on this. Anyway, I will raise an incident for this matter as getting solutions into Prod is just not clear at all. The process seems so easy when you read the documentation, but every time I do it there is an issue, even if I do not have some in the test system!

    Thank you all for your attention.

    Best regards.

    Hello Alexander,

    Is your issue solved?

    Mine was solved by the SAP Support team with a back end fix.

    My solution did not have any problem but there was a back end issue with it that I cannot fix myself.

    Perhaps this is the same issue. You should raise a Very High incident in Production in order to solve your issue.

    Best regards.
