Activating Business Function in a system that is not open for configuration

Hi There,

We are trying to activate a business function HCM_LSO_CI_4 in our QA client which is a copy of production.  When we go into transaction SFW5 I get a warning message saying "Changes to repository or cross-client customizing are not permitted" and it does not allow us into change mode.

Please assist

Dave

    Hello David,

    Firstly backup your system since SFW5 changes cannot be undone.

    Then open the client settings for changing in SCC4.

    Then;

    Change System Change Options to Modifiable also.

    To do this,

    Run SE03

    Goto Administration --> Set System Change Option

    Set Global Settings to Modifiable.

    You can use Edit Menu items to change settings of Software Components and Namespaces also to modifiable and not modifiable.

    Then run SFW5.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    • Thanks for all the feedback. 

      I will check out the note mentioned above.

      Transporting is an option however you cannot transport an individual activation and we have more than one business function activated in Dev that is not ready for deployment to production.

      Regards

    Hi David,

    Can you not activate the function in DEV and put that into a transport which you can import to TEST?

    Regards,

    Hello all

    Yes you can only transport a full activation (You transport a list of all the activated business functions and SAP then activates those)

    SAP recommends using transports for business function activation

    Good Luck
